Frequently Asked Questions
Chiropractors are health care professionals focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders (think muscles, bones and integrated movements). The emphasis in therapy is through manual therapy, including manipulations (adjustments), soft tissue work, exercise prescription, injury prevention. Chiropractors work with general health challenges, sports, work and auto injuries and some movement disorders.
No! All of our practitioners can see you without a doctors note. In fact Chiropractors are primary care practitioners and we can see you for work injuries, motor vehicle injuries and sports injuries and direct your care with you. Some insurance policies may require a physicians note for reimbursement for massage therapy.
We ask that you wear comfortable and non-restrictive clothing which can include shorts, leggings, joggers, active wear, etc...

Treatment duration depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your condition, your past medical history, and other factors.
Re-evaluations will be done at every appointment to assess your progress and your practitioner will continually communicate with you and your health care team to help you achieve your therapy goals.
We determine your treatment length based on various questions including: What is the problem? What is missing from your life today that you would like to do again? What is your level of commitment to your own care? How long have you had your problem? When do you consider yourself "healed?" Are you healed when it doesn't hurt anymore, or when you are engaging in all of your activities?
We want to see you engaging in your life as soon as possible in as short of time as possible.
