Simple Answers to Common Questions
Chiropractic is the science of analyzing how your skeletal structure has deviated from a healthy position, which causes damage to your muscles, joints, and nerves. Chiropractors then correct, or "adjust," your spine and skeletal structure to remove the damaging stress and allow your body to heal.
The conditions that most quickly improve relate to your nerves, muscles, and joints. Some common examples would be migraines, headaches, vertigo, back pain, and pain or tingling in your neck, back, or legs.
I utilize Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3), a unique flavor of chiropractic that analyzes your skeletal structure and what gravity is doing to compress that structure, creating painful stress points. The goal of QSM3 chiropractors is to balance out your skeletal frame. This includes balancing your head, neck, and spine vertically, ensuring your hips and shoulders are level and square, and removing any twist in the length of the spine.
Every day bumps and jolts can knock your spine out of proper alignment. When our alignment suffers a significant trauma, our frame stays in an out-of-balance position. Once your frame is no longer properly supporting your body, the gravity pulling downward on you day after day locks your spine into that improper position, eventually leading to chronic stress points in your spine.
Many chiropractors adjust your spine in the region that is causing you pain. Hopefully you've experienced the great relief that can come from carefully placed adjustments. However that approach may not always correct the underlying cause of your whole structure being out of balance. The QSM3 approach will adjust your spine in order to balance & unwind it, not to just alleviate the present symptom.
Absolutely not. There is no forceful twisting or popping of your spinal joints as I work to unwind your spine using the gentle & controlled method of QSM3 Chiropractic.
No, health insurance companies want to see treatment directly related to your symptoms. My goal is to correct the underlying cause, not to treat your symptom, which are not necessarily the same things. While this care achieves your goal of stopping the pain and reaping long-term improvement, it is not a model that typical insurance supports, and will not be reimbursable by your insurance. You may however use HSA or Flex account funds toward your care.
Absolutely! If you are unsatisfied with your results after your initial period of care, you may exercise this money back guarantee as long as you have kept your appointments, followed the outlined recommendations, and paid for your initial phase of care.
