What to Expect
We approach your care with a three-phase method: relief care, corrective care, and wellness care. This ensures we’re able to focus on setting a foundation for a healthy and happy lifestyle and holistic wellness, versus simply a patch for a problem.
Phase One: Relief Care
Many patients first visit a chiropractor because they’re in pain, which is why our first priority and the main goal of our first phase care is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this requires 2-3 visits per week — or even daily visits — for a period of time until symptoms are reduced.
However, pain is a very poor indicator of health: pain and other symptoms frequently appear only after a disease or other condition has become advanced. Likewise, it is the first symptom to disappear, but even once the pain has been treated, much of the underlying condition remains.
Phase Two: Corrective Care
In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of pain and symptoms, then, it’s necessary to continue with a care plan even though it may seem your symptoms have disappeared.During this phase, you won’t have to receive adjustments as often as you did during your first phase of care, and depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the chiropractic center or at home, to help accelerate your healing.
Don’t be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms occasionally during this phase: this is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur because your body is still not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition, and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
Phase Three: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can both help ensure that your physical problems don’t return and keep your body in optimal condition. Just as consistency in exercise and diet are essential in order to sustain the benefits of healthy living, it’s also necessary to continue chiropractic care in order to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.
When you make routine care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through. Your joints will last longer, and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
We believe in the value of chiropractic care for you and your family toward the goal of achieving total health and wellness — which is why we’ve created a pricing structure that is flexible enough to allow you to get the chiropractic care you need, no matter what your budget.
We accept auto accident, workers compensation, personal injury cases that have resulted in back pain, neck pain, headaches, or other related pain conditions. We also accept most health insurance plans, including Medicare.
Because there are so many insurance plans out there, and because coverage for chiropractic care varies widely, please call us to find out if your plan covers care in our office. Before you start a chiropractic care plan, our staff would be happy to verify your benefits and explain them to you at no charge.
Our focus is to actively help you and your family in taking responsibility for your total health, wellness, and disease management. Dr. Harlan will assist and guide you as you take the time to care for some of the most important people in your world: your family.
In an effort to make living the wellness lifestyle as easy and affordable as possible, we can create a customized family chiropractic plan that is specific to you and your family.
Our goal is to allow everyone to experience the benefits of chiropractic care and adjustments. For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, we can work with you to arrange a flexible payment program that fits your budget. If you have no insurance or if your insurance does not have any chiropractic benefits, there are still ways for you to receive the pain relief and chiropractic care that you need.
Many patients choose to pay directly for their visits with the chiropractor, especially as they discover that chiropractic care is actually extremely cost-effective and affordable. For these patients, chiropractic care is often cheaper and more effective than alternative pain treatments such as pain medications or invasive surgery.
Health on a Budget
We believe in prevention as the best cure. Regular chiropractic care will be far less time consuming and expensive than trying to recover from pain or an injury after it’s happened.
If you feel you do not have enough time or money to take care of yourself, we can help. The last thing we want is for you to come to our chiropractic center in crisis.
