Is Chiropractic right for me?
Are you in pain? Then it’s likely that chiropractic is right for you. When your nervous system function is impaired, it interferes with the messages sent from the brain to the other organs and structures of the body. This decreases your body’s performance. If a serious enough disturbance occurs, pain can result as a neurological response as a warning of actual or potential damage. Pain is the body’s warning sign that something is wrong and that damage could occur if it isn’t fixed. Think of pain just like a check engine light on your car. If you just cover it up and never address the underlying problem, it can get worse.
Alleviate symptoms without medication or surgery. Many patients find relief that they couldn’t find elsewhere through chiropractic treatment. Others are able to avoid using medication. Chiropractic helps get your body’s immune system back into fighting shape. It also restores nervous system function so that your body’s systems work like they should. This can alleviate a very wide variety of symptoms and ailments.
On your first visit, Dr. James will do a complete evaluation to determine if chiropractic fits your needs. We’ll never suggest treatment you don’t need.
What should I expect on my first visit?
First, you will have a consultation with Dr. James to discuss your health concerns and objectives. After a thorough history, Dr. James will perform a neuromuscular examination. If necessary, scans, x-rays, or nerve evaluation may be recommended to accurately assess the structure and function of your spine and nervous system.
After this examination, Dr. James will recommend treatment options to address your concerns and help increase your health.
What ages can see a Chiropractor?
Every age can benefit from chiropractic care. Dr. James adapts his techniques based upon age, size, and complicating factors to ensure you will be as comfortable as possible while seeing results from care.
Often, children and infants need chiropractic care because neurological disturbances can occur during childbirth from traumatic delivery, c-sections, and vacuum extractions. Dr. James uses careful chiropractic adjusting techniques specifically for infants. Treatment involves application of no more pressure than you might use to hold a pencil. This makes it easy and comfortable for your child.
Seniors also benefit from our gentle chiropractic treatment techniques, finding relief for painful and persistent symptoms.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes, and all plans are different. Please bring your insurance card with you and our wonderful staff will verify all of your benefits. If you were in an auto accident, just bring any associated insurance information and the staff will take care of it for you as well.
What technique do you use in your office?
Dr. James is skilled with multiple techniques and will determine the best technique for your body based upon the consultation and exam. Dr. James specializes in gentle chiropractic care that is comfortable for the patient and focused towards achieving results.
I was in an auto accident. When should I visit?
As soon as possible. Dr. James has advanced training in brain and whiplash traumatology and will assess your condition accordingly. When an auto accident occurs there is often muscle and/or nerve damage, even in seemingly minor, low-impact incidents. When treatment begins earlier, you will be less likely to suffer residual symptoms.
