Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I see a Chiropractor?
Regular chiropractic care keeps your body connected to it’s innate healing ability so you can get well and stay well. Your neuro-spinal system is the “communication highway” between your brain and body, so it’s important to keep this system balanced and efficient so you can function at your best. With a focus on function versus feeling, chiropractic care is able to help those who are experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, those who want to perform at their highest level, and everyone in-between.
Do you take insurance?
We do not work directly with insurance providers for a couple of very important reasons. We have found that practice members get more out of their care when they are able to decide what best fits their healthcare needs versus allowing that to be dictated by what insurance companies will cover. Not billing insurance also allows us to keep our prices affordable for families. Many of our practice members find their investment is the about same, or oftentimes less than what they would pay if we accepted insurance.
Is Chiropractic safe for children?
Adjustments for infants and children are very safe and gentle. Although the objective is the same, evaluation and adjustments for children are different than those for adults in accordance to what is physically and developmentally appropriate for each individual. Dr. Lauren has received special training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and EPIC Pediatrics to adjust infants and children. She typically uses her fingertips with light pressure similar to what you would use to check the ripeness of a piece of fruit. It is so important to us that babies get their spines checked we offer a complimentary newborn exam/adjustment to all of our prenatal practice members!
How long will it take?
This depends on your individual health history and goals. Our care is broken down into two phases: Restorative Care and Wellness Care. We will go over your personalized recommendations on Day 2 (the Report of Findings visit) after your initial consult and exam on Day 1. It is our goal for you to experience true healing and optimized function rather than covering up symptoms temporarily. In order to accomplish this and get you the best results possible, most practice members experiencing health challenges begin with a Restorative Care Plan. Upon completion of your Restorative Care Plan you will transition to Wellness Care to maintain your results and continue to live your health potential.
What is the Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the sacrum and supporting ligaments. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore proper neurobiomechanical function of the sacrum and pelvic bones. Doing so relieves intrauterine constraint caused by tension and torsion of the ligaments and other soft tissues connected to the pelvis, allowing more space for your baby to move into the proper position for birth. Pelvic adjustments also help restore optimal nerve function and relieve discomfort caused by dysfunction of the pelvic joints. We perform a Webster Analysis on all of our pregnant practice members on every visit.
