What is the answer to this age old question? If I am adjusted by a Chiropractor, will it work or fix my problem? Will I still be in pain after the adjustment? What should I expect? How much does services from a Chiropractor cost? After reading this blog entry, we hope all of these questions are answered for you. Chiropractors use their hands and other tools to align the spine. When the spine is not in proper alignment, a host of problems could occur including local or traveling pain. A Chiropractor will do preliminary exams to determine if the problem is originating from the spine. If the problem or complaint of the patient is originating from the spine, after the Doctor of Chiropractic aligns the spine, the pain will decrease or go away completely. This treatment may take several visits or just one. The frequency and duration of visits with your Chiropractor depends on the patient's age, complexity of complaint and secondary conditions or diseases. Your Chiropractor will explain to you associated side effects of the adjustment after your treatment is over. Depending on the joint or area adjusted there may be soreness after the adjustment. The great thing about Chiropractic care is that it is the most economical and effective treatment for back pain. Cost of treatment vary, however the average cost of a typical visit can range from $35-$65 without insurance. With insurance the cost of Chiropractic care is even cheaper. Another good thing to remember is that most Chiropractors now accept most major insurances. We hope this has answered any questions you may have on this topic. Want to schedule a visit?
