What To Expect
For some, this may your first time visiting a chiropractor.
For others, you may have finally found your forever "home" with us.
Here we will answer a few common questions about what we do here at The Chirohouse.
Why would a baby or child need to see a chiropractor?
It is part of our mission to help pregnant women achieve the best birth outcomes because we know much it can influence postpartum and infant health. The lasting effects birth has on the health of infants and children is not something that is addressed in conventional healthcare. Here is a list of some things that can cause trauma during birth:
Very long labor
Very short labor
The use of Pitocin
Restricted maternal birthing positions
Pulling or twisting on the baby’s head to help deliver their body
Forceps or vacuum extraction
When this trauma is left uncorrected it can be enough stress to kick their nervous system into fight-or-flight mode, causing many health challenges that could have been prevented. Nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, inability to be soothed, colic, constipation, and reflux are examples and signs of spinal nerve stress in infants.
Parents are often told that their baby will grow out of these types of symptoms, but through a neurological chiropractic lens we have found that they grow into other issues. This looks like a toddler with chronic ear infections and allergies; kids with anxiety, ADHD, and sensory challenges.
We know we can make the biggest change and lasting impact with prenatal and newborn chiropractic care, but it is never too late to get your child checked. We have the technology to measure the amount of stress on their nervous system to know how much care they will need to undo months or years of spinal nerve stress.
Do you accept my insurance?
We are not in network with any insurance companies. We strive to see all members of our community and we are happy to to give you a super bill so you can submit this to your provider yourself. We do encourage using your HSA and FSA. Seeing the entire family is a major focus in our practice, so by not accepting insurance we are able to make care affordable for everyone. We work in conjunction with Chiro Health USA to offer legal discounts for individuals and families. We always welcome open and honest conversations about finances to accommodate any budget. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Is chiropractic actually safe?
This is a common question we hear as chiropractors. There are many studies that prove the safety and efficacy of chiropractic care. A prime example we like to use in our office is the comparison of liability insurance amongst health care providers. Did you know the average annual fee for two family medical doctors liability insurance is around $20,000. For two chiropractors, this fee is closer to $2,000. Chiropractors are trained in the art, specificity, and safety of the adjustment through the entirety of our doctorate programs. Dr. Jo was adjusted during her entire pregnancy and was able to have a safe, natural birth at a birthing center. Dr. Cory even adjusted their son right after he was born!
