How long will I take to heal?

There are 3 phases of healing:

Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our chiropractic office, the first objective is to help you feel better.  Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury.  It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid problems in the future.  Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your life style and goals.

Dr. Siler will give you an estimate of how long it will take and what will be required to get you back functioning at 100%.

If I visit a chiropractor once, do I have to keep coming back forever?

This answer depends on your health goals. Once you’re out of pain, consider any additional appointments a tune up. If you stop going to the gym once you reach your weight or strength goal, what happens? You keep going to maintain what you’ve achieved.

The same is true for chiropractic care. We’re giving your body the ability to function at it’s very best. You don’t have to come back forever, but we recommend occasional “check-ups” to make sure you don’t fall back into old habits. Ultimately, it’s your decision. We’ll be here.

Will it hurt?

No it shouldn’t. An adjustment will help make you feel better as we begin the process of getting you back to health and what you do best.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes, we accept most health insurance, workers comp, auto insurance, and Medicare. We also offer cash plans or time of service plans if you don’t have insurance or choose not to use it. Chiropractic care is more affordable than most people think.
