Frequently Asked Questions

For many of our new patients, ours is their first experience with chiropractic care. As such, we receive some questions about the nature of chiropractic, its function, different techniques and processes, and about our practice as a whole. Here are some questions we hear the most often.

Why choose chiropractic?2020-09-15T18:12:44+00:00

When patients say their pain or discomfort “comes and goes,” that is usually the first warning of something deeper happening. This is a signal that the same injury is flaring over time, and your body alerting you that it is getting worse. The main indicator is when each episode keeps you from enjoying comfort in normal life — your family, hobbies, and work.

What health concerns do chiropractors treat?2020-09-15T18:18:01+00:00

The top priority of chiropractic care is for your body to function optimally in overall health. Major contributing factors to your health can include back and neck pain, headaches, arthritis, allergy symptoms, asthma, injury recovery, and any neurological related issues.

What is chiropractic adjustment?2020-09-15T18:13:20+00:00

Adjustment helps remove a subluxation, also known as the lack of movement and/or misalignment of vertebrae. Adjusting is a way to remove the subluxation and relieve the nervous system.

Patients often say, “Wow! Dr. Felix and Dr. Maria are different than other doctors offices I’ve been to.” Why is that?2020-09-15T22:26:55+00:00

We continuously strive to be better and stay on the cutting edge of our profession. Continuing education is a priority, as it should be for every doctor. New techniques enable us to customize treatments more compellingly and reinforce that a “cookie-cutter” approach is the furthest thing from our processes in treating our patients.

What can I expect at my first session?2020-09-15T18:11:49+00:00

We’ll talk through your medical history, followed by an examination and consideration of other evaluations. This will take about 45 minutes. We will schedule your next appointment to go over any findings and will establish a customized care plan.

What is health?2020-09-15T18:18:34+00:00

With a holistic approach, we strive to consider all aspects of your wellbeing, including physical, mental, and emotional. Boosting these wellness factors promotes overall health, and in turn reduces chronic and acute discomfort. Our goal is for you to live a more productive, happier, and healthier life.

Is chiropractic care safe for all ages?2020-09-15T18:20:43+00:00

Yes, we have different tools and methods to adjust children, adults, and seniors. Results show that any age or body type can benefit from our care.

What chiropractic techniques do Dr. Felix and Dr. Maria use?2020-09-15T18:19:57+00:00

There are many techniques available. With our continuing education and investments in the newest technology, we are only adding to our practice. We’re able to treat a variety of cases — see the “Treatments” page for more details.

Does my insurance pay for chiropractic care?2020-09-15T18:19:12+00:00

At your second appointment, we will have gathered details to discuss your care plan and insurance benefits. We accept most insurance coverage, and also offer an affordable self-pay option.
