A: Some patients experience almost instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process. How long have you had our problem? Are you keeping your appointments? Are you getting the proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Are you in otherwise good condition?

Q: What if my policy doesn't cover chiropractic?
A: Your health affects everything you do and everyone you know. It is your most valuable possession. Yet, each of us is free to place a different value on our health. It's convenient when an insurance company or third party helps pay the bill. But be careful! Don't allow the profit motive of a huge corporation to make the decision for you. These same corporations believe health is based on how you feel. Few policies cover wellness or preventative care. If you want what's best don't depend upon their limited vision. With visits less frequent during the later stage of your recovery, you'll find continued care affordable.
