How long does it take to feel better?
There are many factors which contribute to the answer to this question. Stress levels, quality of diet and sleep, age, and health history are just a few things that will make your case unique. Some people start to experience relief after only an adjustment or two.
Others feel no changes at all in the beginning and then slowly start to find relief as each adjustment builds on the one before. There are even a few people who will feel a temporary worsening of their symptoms while their body is healing. Not to worry, all of these things are normal.
We typically recommend visits which are closer together in the beginning and then gradually lower the frequency to help speed healing and minimize any discomfort which may occur in the beginning.
Do you bill insurance?
We are working right now to increase the number of insurance plans we direct bill. In addition to motor vehicle accident claims, we currently direct bill to Blue Cross.
We plan to roll out direct billing for a number of other insurance providers in early 2019. Please contact our office directly for more information.
What do I need to bring with me on my first visit?
There are a few things you can do to help your first visit go smoothly.
First, if you'd like, you can print out and fill in our new patient forms here. If you'd prefer to fill in these forms in our office, please arrive about 10 minutes early to give yourself some time.
In order to help us understand your history better, you can bring us a list of all medications and supplements you are taking. If you have an x-ray or other diagnostic reports, you can also bring those in for us to look at as well. If you have had these tests done, but do not have the reports, please let us know and we will take care of obtaining these on your behalf.
Wear comfortable clothes. If your area of concern would normally be obscured by clothing, consider bringing in a change of clothes to help us view the area better (ie. if you have a knee concern, you could bring a pair of shorts to change into).
We do have some staff and patients who are sensitive to perfumes. As much as possible, we ask that people please refrain from using perfumes and scented body products when they have an appointment in our office.
What can I do to help my adjustments to hold?
Anything that helps your body to function better will help your adjustments hold better! Making little changes to your diet, exercise routine, sleep, and stress levels can all benefit you. During your appointments, we can help you troubleshoot the things that may be contributing to your issues. Sometimes something as simple as switching the way you get in and out of your vehicle or buying a new pillow can make a big difference!
