Keeping Spines In Line Since 1995.
Q: Do you accept my insurance?

We accept most insurance plans, including Workers' Compensation and No-Fault. You can contact your insurance carrier directly to see if your plan contains Chiropractic coverage. Please be advised that Medicaid plans do not provide coverage for Chiropractic.  

Q: What if I don't have insurance?

Our standard fees for cash patients are $100 for the initial visit (consultation, exam and treatment), and $50 for subsequent visits.   

Q: Does the doctor require an X-ray or MRI prior to my visit?

We do not require you to have X-rays or MRIs prior to treatment. However, if you have already had one, we ask that you bring in the films, disc or report for the doctor to review. 

Q: How much time do I need for an office visit?

Every patient is unique, and appointment times may vary day to day. Normally, for a standard office visit, we recommend that you leave yourself about 20 minutes. If you are coming to our office as a new patient, we recommend that you allow yourself 45 minutes to an hour. To speed up your initial visit, please complete our online patient intake forms - linked on the home page. You do not need to print these forms. 

Q: What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractic care focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and is used most often to treat complaints including, but not limited to:
     - back & neck pain
     - pain in the joints of arms or legs
     - headaches
     - bulging & herniated discs
     - sciatica
     - pinched nerves
     - disc degeneration
     - spinal stenosis
     - numbness in extremities 

 Q: Is chiropractic treatment safe & effective?

While any form of health treatment contains a degree of inherent risk, there is little danger in chiropractic care when administered by a licensed practitioner. Over the past 20 years, many controlled and independent research studies have shown that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating conditions relating to the spine. The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies, depending on their problem and how long it has existed.

Q: Do I need a referral from my medical doctor?

No, a patient does not need to be referred by their medical doctor in order to seek chiropractic treatment. Some insurance plans, however, do require a referral before they provide coverage. Check your insurance card, or call your carrier to find out what your plan requires. 


Q: Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Yes, we treat patients from newborns to senior citizens. Children are very physically active and experience various degrees of trauma every day. Minor incidents can add up and cause problems with their developing spines. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient, and uniquely suited to help children develop without drugs or surgery. 


Q: Why is there a popping sound when I'm adjusted?

Adjustment of a joint may result in release of a gas bubble between the joints that makes a popping sound, caused by the change of pressure within the joint - like when you 'crack' your knuckles. 


Q: How often do I have to come back?

A chiropractor can provide acute, chronic, and preventative care, and every patient's case is different. The hands-on nature of chiropractic treatment is what requires patients to visit their chiropractor a number of times. After evaluating your condition, the doctor will discuss a treatment plan with you.


Q: Is it ok to see a chiropractor if I'm pregnant?

Yes, chiropractic care can be beneficial to expectant mothers by helping to relieve the back pain associated with the weight gain during pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments during pregnancy can also help ease the delivery of the child. 


Q: Do chiropractors prescribe drugs or perform surgery?

No. If our doctors feel that drugs, surgery, or other alternatives would be beneficial to your recovery, they will make the appropriate referral. Doctors Frey & Nazar have working relationships with a variety of healthcare providers in our area.
