Do Adjustments Hurt?
NO! Adjustments feel good! Our techniques are safe, gentle and effective. It is so comfortable even newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery patients can get adjusted. Naturally, adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
Can I adjust myself?
No. Some people may be able to make their joints “pop,” but that’s not an adjustment! Adjustments are specific and take years to master. Even Boulder, CO chiropractors must consult other colleagues to benefit from chiropractic care.
How many times will I have to come to your office?
The number and frequency of adjustments vary from patient to patient. Most patients see some progress within a week or two. As supporting muscles and ligaments heal, chiropractic visits may become less frequent.
Who should be checked by a Chiropractor?
People should think of their chiropractor like a dentist for the spine. Anyone who would like a healthy spine should see a chiropractor. Most people are surprised when we identify problem areas that do not hurt…yet. We are truly offering “preventive health care”!
Once you go to the chiropractor do you have to keep going?
Going to the gym, the dentist and eating veggies are great healthy habits, just like chiropractic. Getting the best results from these things comes from choosing to incorporate them on a regular basis forever. Once you start feeling great why would you want to stop?
Do you accept insurance?
We do not take all insurances, the initial consultation is at no charge and we can check your insurance coverage then. If it doesn’t cover, not to worry, our cash prices are about the same as a copay.
How do you do your adjustments?
As an experienced Boulder, CO Chiropractor, the Gonstead technique is my technique of choice. The Gonstead adjusting technique is acknowledged as one of the safest and most effective systems of evaluating and caring for the spine. It is flexible enough to be applied to all ages, from newborn to the golden years. We only adjust the problem areas and leave the rest alone. More information about this technique can be found on the GCSS website. In cases where a gentler approach is preferred (as in small children and seniors), I see great results with Sacro Occipital Technique, and Activator Technique.
