Insurance policies may vary by plan greatly in terms of deductible and percentage of coverage for care. Because of the variance from one insurance policy to another, we require that you, the patient, be personally responsible for the payment of your deductibles as well as any other unpaid balances in this office. We will do our best to verify your insurance coverage, and will bill your insurance in a timely manner as a courtesy to you.

Chiropractic care centrally involves what is known as a chiropractic adjustment. There may be additional supportive procedures or recommendations as well. When providing an adjustment, we use our hands or an instrument to reposition anatomical structures, such as vertebrae. Potential benefits of an adjustment include restoring normal joint motion, reducing swelling and inflammation in a joint, reducing pain in the joint, and improving neurological functioning and overall well-being.
I have had the opportunity to discuss with the treating provider(s) or with other office personnel regarding the nature and purpose of my treatment(s) and or any other procedures. Please understand during any time of your treatment(s) there maybe examinations or tests conducted that will be carefully performed but may cause some discomfort.
Please understand there are some risks to care, including, but not limited to: muscle spasms, aggravating and/or temporary increase in symptoms, lack of improvement of symptoms, burns and/or scarring from electrical stimulation and from hot or cold therapies, including but not limited to hot packs and ice, fractures (broken bones), disc injuries, strokes, dislocations, strains, and sprains. With respect to strokes, there is a rare but serious condition known as an “arterial dissection” that typically is caused by a tear in the inner layer of the artery that may cause the development of a thrombus (clot) with the potential to lead to a stroke, chiropractic adjustment does not cause a dissection in a normal, healthy artery.
The reported association between chiropractic visits and stroke is exceedingly rare and is estimated to be related in one in one million to one in two million cervical adjustments.
