Chiropractic FAQs

Welcome to Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center’s Chiropractic FAQs page. Here, we aim to address some common questions and concerns you may have about chiropractic care. If you have any additional questions or need more information, please feel free to reach out to us.

Once I go to a chiropractor, will I always have to go?

Chiropractic care is tailored to your specific needs. While some patients may choose to continue regular adjustments for ongoing wellness, others may only require treatment for a specific issue or injury. Our chiropractors will work with you to create a personalized care plan that suits your goals and needs.

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

Chiropractic adjustments are typically painless. You may experience some mild discomfort or soreness following an adjustment, but this is usually temporary and part of the healing process. Most patients find chiropractic care to be a comfortable and relieving experience.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

Chiropractic care can be highly effective for various musculoskeletal issues, but it is not a cure-all for every medical condition. We focus on improving spinal health and nervous system function, which can have a positive impact on many aspects of your health. We work in conjunction with other healthcare providers when necessary to ensure comprehensive care.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Chiropractic care for infants and children can be beneficial for addressing common issues such as colic, ear infections, sleep problems, and developmental challenges. Adjustments for children are gentle and safe, aimed at promoting proper growth and development.

Can chiropractic help with colic and how?

Yes, chiropractic care may help alleviate colic in infants. Adjustments can improve nervous system function, which may reduce the symptoms associated with colic. Our chiropractors have experience working with young children and can discuss this option with you.

Does insurance cover chiropractic visits?

Many insurance plans offer coverage for chiropractic care. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to verify your specific coverage and any potential limitations.

How much does it cost?

The cost of chiropractic care can vary depending on the type and frequency of treatments needed. We offer competitive pricing, and our team will provide you with a clear understanding of the costs associated with your care plan during your initial consultation.

Do I need a referral from my physician?

In most cases, you do not need a referral to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are primary healthcare providers, meaning you can seek care directly from them without a referral.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes, we collaborate with medical doctors and other healthcare professionals when necessary to ensure you receive the best possible care. Your health and well-being are our top priorities.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Your first visit typically includes a thorough evaluation, which may or may not include an adjustment, depending on your condition and the chiropractor’s assessment. We will discuss the recommended treatment plan with you.

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, we often provide exercises, stretches, and lifestyle recommendations to complement your chiropractic care. These can help you achieve better results and maintain your spinal health.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes, individuals who have had back surgery can often benefit from chiropractic care. Our chiropractors are experienced in working with post-surgical patients and will adapt their techniques to suit your specific needs and limitations.

Auto Accident FAQs

Does your office work with insurance companies?

Yes, we work with many insurance companies to help you navigate the claims process after an auto accident.

Do you take x-rays?

X-rays may be taken if necessary to assess your condition accurately. Your safety is our priority, and we use minimal radiation techniques.

How long does the initial appointment take?

The initial appointment’s duration can vary but generally takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour, including evaluation and treatment.

Do you bill insurance directly?

We can assist you in billing your insurance, making the process as convenient as possible for you by providing the correct paperwork for reimbursement.

Do you recommend any treatments other than Chiropractic care, and are these services offered in your clinic?

Depending on your injuries, we may recommend additional therapies such as physical therapy, massage, or acupuncture. Some of these services may be offered in our clinic, while others may be referred to trusted providers in our network.

What sort of injuries can happen in an accident?

Auto accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, including whiplash, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and more. Our team is experienced in diagnosing and treating various accident-related injuries to help you recover and regain your quality of life.
