Frequently Asked Questions

Once I see a Chiropractor, do I have to go forever?

When you begin Energetic Chiropractic, the objective of care is to optimize the function of your nervous system in order to maximize your potential for optimal health, performance and wellbeing. Once this goal has been achieved, the key to seeing lasting results and maximizing the benefits of care lies in maintaining your nervous system free of interference over time.

How long will it take?

Many factors affect the frequency and duration of care required. While we are all similar in our physical make-ups, we have all had vastly different life experiences that affect our response to care. These include stress levels, degree of physical activity, nutritional status, and attitude to name a few.

Dr Jason will work with you to help you reach your health goals as quickly and as efficiently as possible, however, based on his years of clinical experience, he has found that it usually takes anywhere from two to six months of initial intensive care in which he will be seeing you between three times a week and once a week.

I didn’t hear any “cracking” or “popping” when you delivered the adjustment. Did you do anything?

There are many ways of adjusting patients in chiropractic. Some involve a physical movement of the joints, which results in the sound that many people are so familiar with. On the other hand, the Energetic Chiropractic Method utilizes a light force applied through a gentle directed contact, which is enough input to give your nervous system the information it needs to interrupt neurological patterns. As the function of your nervous system is optimized and the tension in your body dissipates, the energy from your own movement and breathing causes the structure of your body to spontaneously “crack” and “pop” on its own.

Does it hurt to get adjusted?

The Energetic Chiropractic Method is in fact one of the gentlest forms of chiropractic care available. You will never experience any twisting, forcing, or abrupt movements. The areas of your body receiving an adjustive input are very often tender prior to the initial contact, however, it is not the contact itself that produces a painful sensation, but the fact that this area has been distorted over a long period of time as a result of the interference patterns stored within your nervous system.

How am I supposed to feel after an adjustment?

For some, results are immediate, as physical, mental, or emotional challenges change quickly, while in others the process is slower and results may be less evident. Healing is a non-linear path, which means that one might experience ups and downs during a course of chiropractic care. This might include the experience of emotions, soreness, fatigue, and awareness of new sensations as nervous system patterns change and the body finds a new alignment. On the other hand, it might also mean greater energy, ease, rest, creativity, and connectivity.

 

Is Chiropractic Care Recommended During Pregnancy?

Yes. In fact, the Energetic Chiropractic Method is especially suited for pregnant women because of how gentle it is.

Studies show that woman receiving chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are able to carry and deliver a baby with more comfort, require fewer interventions during labor, reduce the need for analgesics during delivery by half, decrease the average amount of time spent in labor, and spend 39% less time in labor when giving birth for the 2nd or 3rd time.

Why do my children need chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care for kids has been shown to be very safe, gentle, and effective for the day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, digestive issues, congestion, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.

The birth process can often be a traumatic event and one of the earliest stressors to the optimal function of a young child’s nervous system. Left unchecked the interference patterns created as a result of the birth process can become more serious as your child grows up. To minimize the chance of future health problems, have your children checked on a regular basis.

Do you accept insurance?

Energetic Chiropractic does not bill insurance. We are NOT a participating provider with any PPO’s, HMO’s or Medicare since the type of care we offer is not in alignment with an insurance treatment model. We do however offer very affordable care plans for you and the entire family. Payment for visit fees can be paid in the form of cash, check, credit card, HSA or FSA. If you have any questions regarding our policies for payment, please do not hesitate to call us.
