Our goal is for our patients to come in regularly for preventative care adjustments. A well maintained spine is a healthier spine!
New Patient Exam - $50.00: The exam allows your Chiropractor to assess for current musculoskeletal conditions. The exam may include a History, a Posture Assessment, Range of Motion Assessment, and Ortho-neuro assessment. Chiropractors are specially trained to use palpation to feel for muscle spasm, tenderness, and tightness in the muscles along the spine. These assessments allow the Doctor to determine the location of the spinal fixations that are in need of adjustment.
Established Patient Re-Exam -$40.00: The re-exam occurs if a patient has not been seen in over a year. The re-exam allows the doctor to assess the progress of any current conditions. It may include a revisit of the History, a Posture Assessment, Range of Motion Assessments, and Ortho-neuro assessments. The Chiropractor uses palpation to feel along the spine for muscle spasm, tenderness, and tightness, and performs other assessments to assist in the evaluation. The assessment findings allow the Doctor to determine the patient's progress.
Adjustment of the Spine - $50.00 to $60.00: (Types of Adjustments: hands-on, hand-held Impulse Adjuster Instrument, Activator Method Instrument, or Vertebral Distraction Pump Instrument)
Adjustments are offered to promote relief from pain and pressure that can occur from daily use and posture positions. Your Chiropractor utilizes a variety of methods to adjust the spine, and incorporates several peices of adjusting equipment to assist with correcting spinal fixations.
Disclaimer: To avoid injury do not attempt adjustments at home. Chiropractors are trained for many years in Anatomy and proper technique and receive their Doctorate and Board Certification. Always see a professional.
Extraspinal Adjustment Adjustment of the Extremities (legs/arms/jaw): $15.00/area
Chiropractors may also adjust "extraspinal joints" in the body, including the jaw, shoulder, ribs, wrist, elbows, fingers, hand, hip, ankle, knee, and the feet. The extraspinal adjustments complement the spinal adjustment and recommendations will be made based on the examination. An example of an extrememtiy adjustment is an ankle pull, which aims to decompress the ankle joint. Ankle joints can become stuck and compressed from a combination of the weight of our body, pressure from gravity, and/or a lack of supportive shoes.
Adjustment Modalities (In addition to Hands-On):
Impulse Adjuster Tool (Adjustment Instrument): Your Chiropractor and thousands of other doctors around the world now use the hand-held Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of their patients, when indicated. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
Activator Method Adjustment Instrument: The Activator Method Instrument is a hand-held instrument that your Chirorpactor may use to deliver a mild adjustment to the fixated joints of the spine. The Activator method is gentle enough to be used on pediatric as well as senior citizen patients.
Vertebral Distraction Pump Adjustment Instrument: The Vertebral Distraction Pump is a hand held instrument that the Chiropractor may use to adjust the spine. Often gravity and posture positions can compress our spine, but the VDP-Pro instrument gently applies pressure aimed to relieve this compression. Studies show it may help treat and reduce disc herniations, help with sciatica, and be a viable means of applying myofascial release of musculoskeletal conditions. To learn more about the VDP-Pro case studies please visit VDP Studies and talk with your Chiroprator to see if this method may be beneficial for you.
