What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors treat many conditions, not just back and neck pain. We can relieve headaches and migraines, as well as chronic pain from fibromyalgia, arthritis, or other conditions. Repetitive strain injuries and muscle stiffness resulting from overuse, poor posture, or unhealthy lifestyle habits can all benefit from chiropractic. We can promote a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery for pregnant women, or treat individuals suffering from sports injuries, workplace injuries, slip and fall, or auto accidents. Since we take a lifestyle approach, we will treat your presenting injuries and strive to help you find your full health and wellness.

Will chiropractic hurt?

Chiropractic adjustments should not hurt. We strive to use gentle pressure to release restricted muscle tissue and restore your natural spinal alignment. We frequently use chiropractic tools and computer-aided machines to make controlled adjustments, and this ensures we never use too much force. While you may be experiencing pain when you start treatment, it's our goal to get you well again. Many patients enjoy our adjustments and say that feel relaxed. Sometimes you may hear a popping sound, which is energy being released from your joints. This is natural, and nothing to be concerned with.

Is chiropractic safe?

Yes, chiropractic is safe for individuals of all ages, as long as you see a licensed chiropractor. Some chiropractors specialize in the treatment of children, elderly, or pregnant women. If you have a specific health need, find a chiropractor who's treated other patients like you.

Will my insurance cover treatment?

Many insurance plans cover chiropractic treatment, although some plans require referral from a doctor. Our staff is happy to look up your plan before you come in to see what coverage is available to you. If your insurance does not cover our care, we have affordable payment options.

What training do chiropractors have?

Chiropractors receive training on anatomy, neurology, physiology, nutrition, orthopedics, and chiropractic adjustments. All in all, chiropractic classes provide 4,200 or more hours of education and hands-on experience. Chiropractors may take additional training to enhance their services offered and skill sets. One of our Broomfield chiropractors, Dr. Katie Anderson, is currently undergoing additional training from the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association on chiropractic care for infants and expectant mothers.

Will I have to go to chiropractic forever?

There's a misconception that once you start getting chiropractic, you need to keep coming back for weekly visits. While a certain number of visits are needed to treat a health problem, our goal is to get you healthy so you can do what you love. We'll estimate how many visits it will take to treat your injury so you know what to expect. Then, if you want to come back for occasional tune-ups, we're more than happy to help.
