Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Going to a chiropractor should be a very comfortable and safe experience. The side effects to an adjustment are minimal and extremely rare, as long as the chiropractor performs a proper exam and evaluation to determine the diagnosis and eliminate any contraindications to an adjustment. Patients may experience mild soreness after their first treatment, similar to having a work out for the first time. At Planet Chiropractic, we make sure to take all the necessary steps to assure you and your family have minimal risk and maximum results

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Several factors determine how many sessions are needed to achieve maximum results from chiropractic care: Length of time that you've had the problem, extent of injury, age of the patient, and activity levels are all assessed on your first visit to determine what amount of treatment is needed. Often times, we see patients in good health that may only need a few visits!

How much does chiropractic care cost?

The initial consultation is free. At that consultation, your doctor and staff will evaluate you and determine if x-rays are needed. You will also receive a free benefits check to determine co-pays, coinsurance and deductibles. If you don't have insurance, no worries! We see many patients with high deductibles and no insurance, and we will find a cost affordable option that works within your budget and will achieve your healthcare goals.

What does a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractors are an excellent first step to visit if you are experiencing musculoskeletal symptoms. The most common symptoms we treat are headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica, and carpal tunnel symptoms. In general, at Planet Chiropractic we work on any joint that you are experiencing pain and symptoms from.

How does a chiropractor help sciatica?

We treat many sciatica patients, and typically receive excellent results! After the proper diagnosis is made, we have a variety of treatments to help with sciatica, including spinal decompression therapy, spinal manipulation, physical rehab, acupuncture and massage therapy.

Does chiropractors help with headaches?

Many patients don't realize chiropractors help with headaches. Headache pain suffers typically receive fantastic results with our multi therapy approach. When the joints of the neck or upper back become misaligned, that can cause inflammation and pressure on the very delicate nerves that communicate with the brain. By treating these areas with Acupuncture, Massage, and chiropractic adjustments, the results can decrease and even eliminate acute and chronic headache and migraine symptoms.

How do chiropractors relieve pain from auto accidents?

Auto accidents, even low level collisions, cause an acceleration and deceleration event in the neck, upper back shoulders and even the lower back. This torque on the spine causes misalignment's and muscles to go into tension and spasm, resulting in pain, headaches, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, and a myriad of other symptoms. Chiropractic treatment is designed to decrease this tension and stress, allowing your body to heal and get you feeling great again!
