    FAQ

    Will I have to continue seeing a chiropractor forever?

    No. Each patient's condition and treatment is unique. While some patients who require extended treatments have been with us for years, many feel relief from their symptoms within weeks. While we are always glad to see a returning patient, it is our policy to provide the best medical care possible, which means we aim to resolve your problem efficiently.

    Are chiropractic services covered by my insurance?

    Our office accepts many major insurance providers' policies. Most accepted policies will cover 80-100% of any of our treatments. To learn whether your plan is accepted at our office, check our insurance page, or call (248) 681-7655 or contact us online, and we'll check your coverage for you. We will always make sure you are aware of the costs before we charge you for our services.

    Can I see a chiropractor if I have a bulged or herniated disc?

    Yes. We specialize in treatment of bulging discs and herniated or slipped discs. Our treatment of disc disorders can relive pain and often help patients avoid surgery.

    I had back surgery can I see a chiropractor?

    Yes. It is common for those who have had spinal surgery to have returning or new symptoms related to back or neck pain. Chiropractic treatment and massage therapy can help people who have had back surgery to avoid needing surgery again and to relieve new or returning symptoms.

    Should I visit a chiropractor after an accident?

    If you've been in an auto accident or otherwise sustained an injury that has caused acute pain or loss of mobility, you should go to the emergency room for immediate care. Doctors there will assess the need for surgery and collect necessary imaging and documentation of the injury. If you wish to seek non-drug treatment, or if pain exceeds the capacity of painkillers, the next step is to contact our office. We recommend that you begin chiropractic treatment within five days of an accident to prevent pain or immobility from becoming chronic. Learn more about our accident treatments here.

    Is it safe to see a chiropractor if I'm pregnant?

    Yes. We offer a number of treatments that are ideal for reducing discomfort and tension for pregnant women. Our low force adjustments gently and safely relieve pain and often help make delivery more manageable for the mother and the child.

    Can chiropractic adjustments benefit athletes?

    Yes. Visiting a chiropractor can help to improve performance, relieve pain from injury of overexertion, and prevent future injury. Athletes can greatly benefit from combining a chiropractic adjustment with regular exercise and stretching.

    Can I crack my own back?

    While cracking your own back may cause some immediate relief, it can ultimately lead to negative consequences and long-term damage. Our experienced chiropractors are trained to resolve pain and discomfort safely and efficiently, so that you won't feel the need to crack your own back.
