Chiropractic philosophy begins with the principle that the human body has a remarkable ability to maintain its own health. Most people think Chiropractors just treat low back pain, but Chiropractic actually focuses on the nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).
The nervous system is central to all bodily functions and when this system is malfunctioning it can have devastating results. Poor posture, lack of exercise and stress all negatively affect the spine. Over time, the soft nerves (outside the spine) begin to send distress signals (i.e. pain, numbness, tingling) to the brain via the spinal cord.
Symptoms are usually the end result of years of neglect. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining optimal health of the nervous system by removing undue stresses on the nerves and thereby the body as a whole. Chiropractic Physicians are uniquely qualified, trained and licensed to correct spinal misalignments.
Prices will vary based on condition. The average new patient can expect to pay between $95-$150 for the examination, consultation and treatment. On-site digital X-rays are available and performed when clinically necessary. The average initial visit lasts 1 hour. Chiropractic care is covered under most insurance plans.
