How is chiropractic manipulation performed?

Chiropractic manipulation is a hands-on, manual procedure that uses highly refined skills developed during four years of chiropractic training. I use my hands to manipulate and adjust the spine. Each manipulation is gentle, safe and highly controlled; I adjust each manipulation to your specific body's needs.

Does chiropractic care hurt? Is it safe?

Chiropractic treatment is one of the safest, non-invasive approaches to optimal health. Treatment is drug-free and effective in reducing and eliminating neck, back and joint pain. It is a very low-risk therapy and negative effects are extremely rare.

Does chiropractic care require X-rays?

No, I am able to assess a person's individual needs through assessing their diet/lifestyle, addressing the client's discomfort and observation of the body's posture and movement.

Do I need a referral from a medical doctor to receive chiropractic treatment?

No, you do not need a referral from a medical doctor to receive chiropractic care. However, I work closely with other medical doctors and encourage each of my clients to share their health information and treatments with both myself and other medical professionals as part of a holistic approach to your optimal health.

Does a chiropractor need a license to practice?

Yes, all chiropractors must be licensed by the state in which they practice. I am licensed by the city of Washington , DC, and the states of Maryland and Virginia.

Are chiropractors educated as well as medical doctors?

Yes, while each school of medical thought various slightly in its approach to health care, all chiropractors are trained roughly equivalent to a general medical practitioner. I received my degree from The National College of Chiropractic in Chicago , IL , a top-ranked, diversified school.

Is chiropractic care covered by insurance?

Yes, with most insurance policies chiropractic is at least partially, if not fully, covered. Please check with your individual insurance provider to confirm your policy benefits and claim procedures.

Is chiropractic care expensive?

No, if your chiropractic care is not covered by insurance, we offer very reasonable rates for our services. Each client is unique in his or her treatment and services, please inquire with me about fees.

Can pregnant women see a chiropractor?

Yes, I adjust treatment to meet each clients needs. In fact, in most cases, women find that having chiropractic treatment during pregnancy supports them in their comfort and energy levels.

Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Yes, chiropractic care is effective with children, especially those that are physically active, participate in sports or have experienced a fall that may have thrown the child's spine out-of-alignment. Each child's chiropractic treatment is designed specifically to their needs.

Is chiropractic care effective for the elderly?

Yes, as the body matures, the spine is at greater risk for becoming subluxated, or out-of-alignment. Chiropractic care supports the individual's body in achieving its optimal health and strength, even as it ages.

If I begin chiropractic care, do I need to continue with it for the rest of my life?

This is up to each individual, while chiropractic care can treat acute pain such as neck or back pain; it is also a very effective preventative therapy. Visiting your chiropractor regularly, before you experience acute pain, supports the body's optimal health.
