How many times do I have to come in if you can accept me into the program?
We really don’t know how many times you will need to come in for care until we do your initial patient history intake and grasp the scope of the problem. We’ve had some knee patients, although rare, gain 100% relief after one care session. And other’s with more complicated problems needing up to 20 visits. Some patients will benefit from our Remote Care program and can do a portion of their program at home and reduce their need to come into the office. It really depends on each individual case and we’ll discuss this in-depth if you’re accepted for care.
Sounds amazing– but how much will this cost?
The key to discussing the cost of our care programs is transparency and honesty. In order to answer this, we must address this core question first, can I help you? Will one of our programs help to bring more ease into your life?
In order to answer this question, we must do a detailed consultation including a deep patient history to help build a clinical picture. This helps us understand whether or not we can help you. Then, we conduct a detailed examination that includes a physical exam, testing, reviews of results from past MRIs, EMGs or X-Rays from other doctors. This allows us to gather all the possible information needed to make a proper diagnosis and answer the question, “can I help you?”
If the answer is NO, there is no cost because I don’t believe I can help you and we do not offer care to patients we can’t help. Ever.
If the answer is YES, now we have a list of tools and techniques that we can use to help you solve the problem. We then put together a detailed plan to address the possible costs for the exact plan that’s right for you.
Does my insurance cover this treatment?
This is a difficult question to answer because each insurance plan covers different treatments and an individual’s care program will have a diverse range of serves to address the problem. Some are covered by insurance and some are not. We can make a general statement that some insurance plans will cover some services and we can review your specific case and insurance when you visit our office to discuss your care.
Why’s a chiropractor treating peripheral neuropathy?
The answer is simple. I want you to think of me as a natural doctor. I use as many natural tools as necessary. Whether that’s one technique or a multitude of tools designed to help solve your body’s problem at the source. In some cases of peripheral neuropathy, a patient may have a misalignment in the spine, a sublimated disc or something placing pressure on the nerve. I’ve found that gentle, “non-cracking” chiropractic adjustments are very effective. In other cases, such as diabetic, chemotherapy, Agent Orange or antibiotic induced neuropathy, then we need to use other non-chiropractic adjusting tools to help your body reverse the neuropathy.
