Paying for Long-Term Treatment That’s NOT Relieving Your Symptoms

Reputable chiropractors do everything in their power to help their patients feel better as fast as possible with as few chiropractic treatments as necessary.

Choosing a Chiropractor without Getting the Real Scoop from Past Clients

Too many people fall victim to tall-tales made by crooked chiropractors who exaggerate their experience, training and value.  All too often, not a word of truth has been spoken.

Buying Into the BEST Technique Myth

Consider it a warning sign if any chiropractor claims to be the only one with a “special new chiropractic technique” that is the latest and best method for spinal adjustments.

Do Spinal Adjustments Hurt?

This is a common concern of new patients walking in the door…or in my case, me walking into their door.  I do mainly make house calls, you know! After experiencing their first adjustment, it’s a totally different story and they’re looking forward to a future visit. The truth is that being adjusted is not a […]

Choosing Your Chiropractor Simply Because They Advertised the Cheapest Price

Cheaper doesn’t equal better. In fact what it may equal is one large headache and a lot more cash spent in the long run because… 1. A low price can be the bait that attracts your phone call only to be pressured into a much more expensive procedure. You should be thoroughly examined before anyone […]

Chiropractic Care is Expensive

There’s this myth out there that chiropractic care is expensive.
