What is a chiropractor?

We perform adjustments or alignments to the joints of the body to manage pain and address function. If you stopped me on the street and said hey Doc, I know you’re a chiropractor, what do you guys do? I would say headaches neck pain back pain and sciatica make up 90+ percent of what we do.

Are chiropractors doctors?

Absolutely. I attended Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO. Logan is a nationally accredited four-year program done after completing an undergrad degree.

Are chiropractors useful?

Every day we help patients take their life back from their various conditions and return to the activities that they need and want to do.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Everyone is a little different. This is largely because no two people live the exact same lives so no two people have the exact same treatment plan. How bad It hurts, how often it happens, and for how long they’ve been dealing with it are examples of factors that play into a treatment plan.

How much does a chiropractic care cost?

At our office, we offer a complimentary benefits check so that the answer to this question is covered very early in the process. Chiropractic is very affordable and covered by almost everyone’s insurance. What your actual out-of-pocket would be is dependent on the type of insurance coverage you have. We take almost all commercial insurances, plus all Kentucky Medicaid plans. We also accept all personal injury and most workers comp plans.

Why should you choose our office?

Simply put, we make it easy for you to get chiropractic care. From the ease of scheduling your appointment through our online portal to our easy online no-printing necessary paperwork, to thoroughly evaluating your condition and explaining it to you, nobody makes it easier.

What are common chiropractic techniques?

Diversified, Thompson, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Gonstead are techniques we employ. This not an exhaustive list but these are the most commonly used in our profession.

What does a chiropractor treat?

If you stopped me on the street and said “hey doc I know your chiropractor what do you guys do?” I’d say headaches, neck pain (including when that neck pain runs down the arm), back pain, and sciatica. We also treat car accident injuries and those sustained at work.

How do chiropractors relieve pain from injuries or accidents?

We do a thorough history, exam, and X-rays to better understand the problem and then address it using adjustments, therapy, massages, and exercise instruction.

Can I get chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Without a doubt. For the record, we do not take X-rays on pregnant or nursing moms.

How does a chiropractor help lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica?

We carefully take a history, evaluate, exam, and x-ray to help us further understand what the problem is before embarking on a plan of treatment.

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

Most often it's way less painful than what the patient has been going through prior to arriving at our office.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

The adjustments are safe and there is tons of research to validate them.

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

The sound you hear when getting adjusted is nitrogen being released from the joints of the spine at the end of that particular joints range of motion.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

Not at all! Everyone has their own series of problems, their own history of injuries, and their own activities that they perform on a daily basis at home and work that make each patient, and their care, completely unique.

Can I learn to adjust myself?

That is not recommended.

Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?

Gracious no!

Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

If they have a problem that falls in our scope of practice. I always like to make this point though, we do not adjust little ones, or for that matter elderly patients, the same way we would adjust a young adult. Every single patient is managed individually and carefully!

What type of education and training do chiropractors have?

Four years of undergrad, for academic years of chiropractic school, and continuing education on an annual basis. Plus 21 years of experience Practicing right here in Lexington.
