How do I know if chiropractic right for me?
We understand that trying to find solutions to our health challenges can be overwhelming at times. This is why we offer a COMPLIMENTARY 15-MINUTE CONSULTATION to discover how we can best help you.
Should I have my kids checked by a chiropractor?
We recommend that children be checked from birth – (our current patients who are with us during their pregnancy receive a complimentary at home adjustment within the first two weeks of their birth and a complimentary newborn “welcome to earth” check as well). All births whether long or short, natural, assisted or cesarean can put a lot of pressure on your baby’s spinal cord and brain. Even the baby’s position in the womb can have an early effect on growth and development. When these tiny infants begin to grow, learn to crawl, and eventually walk, freshly developed motor patterns often lead to numerous slips/falls, bumps, and bruises. Chiropractic helps kids stay connected, supporting not only healthy body & mind, but also healthy self confidence, self-esteem and self-love.
Is chiropractic safe and comfortable for my child?
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spine. Adjustments are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spine and nerve system. Most parents report that their children enjoy chiropractic adjustments and look forward to their next visit.
I’m pregnant is it safe to get adjusted?
Absolutely. We have special pillows and tables to create ease for pregnant women to get adjusted throughout all stages of pregnancy. Getting adjusted can create better birth outcomes, easier, faster labors, and optimal positioning and nerve supply for baby as he/she grows and develops. Got pain? Chiropractic care can help prevent discomfort like sciatica and round ligament pain for mommies whose bodies are changing too.
How much does the initial visit cost?
Our initial chiropractic analysis is $125 and will require approximately 1 hour to complete from start to finish. The initial visit will consist of a one-on-one consultation, digital nerveous system screening, functional neurology exam, chiropractic exam, and your first adjustment if necessary. Upon completion, Dr. Nathan will use his clinical judgement to determine the appropriate course of action for you.
Can I use my insurance?
Absolutely. Innate Life Chiropractic is an Out of Network Provider with insurance companies. This allows us to pass a savings to our patients and base our recommendations on the needs of the patients, not an insurance company’s algorithm. For patients who have an insurance plan that covers chiropractic care, we provide a “superbill” which has all of the diagnostic codes that your insurance needs to see in order to provide you reimbursement for the services we provide.
What is the cracking/popping sound?
Not all adjustments create a “crack.” However, the audible sound commonly produced during traditional chiropractic adjustments is the release of gas (nitrogen) from synovial joints. This gas can be built up from improper biomechanics associated with vertebral subluxations. Also released are various chemicals which reduce muscle tension, create a sense of ease in the body as well as increase the immune function.
What is a subluxation?
Subluxations are neurological tension patterns built by the body in response to stress, trauma, or injury. As we stack up layers of tension, trauma, and injury our life expression, our fulfillment, and our health suffer.
Some people say that once you have to start going to a chiropractor you have to go forever.
Our care should only be utilized for as long as it is serving you to become a better, healthier, and more vibrant you. Typically, people do choose to stay with us for well-being care because they like the way they feel and function with chiropractic care. We understand that maintaining optimal communication and connection is essential for health throughout a lifetime.
If I’m sick should I reschedule my appointment?
If you can get yourself to the office then please come in – this is a very important time to get adjusted. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost your immune system and help you get well sooner.
