What is Chiropractic?
The word chiropractic means “Done by hand.” We do hands-on non-invasive treatment for musculoskeletal issues and nerve entrapment. As sports chiropractors, our treatment goes far beyond the simple chiropractic adjustment, working into the muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons that are affected. Our goal is to find out why it hurts, not just to treat what hurts.
What Our Typical Chiropractic Visit looks like
The first visit starts with an exam including orthopedic tests as indicated and an analysis of how your joints move as well any imbalances in your muscles that could be contributing to your issue. From there we address the soft tissue injuries and imbalances. We may use Active Release Techniques, Graston, cupping, stretching, and other therapies. Next as chiropractors, we typically adjust. Adjusting is simply putting movement into a joint; it may or may not produce a cavitation, that “pop” often associated with chiropractic visits. If you’re not ready for an adjustment, let us know; we are happy to take care of you with all the other therapies. We love to explain what is happening that is leading to your issues and teach stretches and simple exercises that will help you to continue to heal and avoid recurrence of the injury.
What should I expect on my first visit?
Your first visit will take around 45 minutes and comprises a detailed history; an exam including functional movement screening and orthopedic, neurological and muscle tests as indicated; treatment including myofascial release, chiropractic adjustments, and rehab prescription. Additional therapies (Electric Stim, Graston, RockTape, cupping) may used as needed.
What should I wear?
Please dress in clothes that allow you to move. Athletic shorts or legging allow us to work much better than jeans!
How and when do I pay?
Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, local checks and credit/debit cards. The initial visit and exam is $165-$195 and follow-up treatment visits are $85. Returning patient visits with a new issue or needing an exam are $125.
JH Backcountry Health does not bill insurance. We are happy to provide you with a superbill/detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance or HSA.
Will I need to come back?
This depends on the condition and what you are looking for. We like to get you feeling better and out doing what you love as quick as possible. Some issues resolve in one visit; some take a few. We love to teach you what you can do to take charge of your health and not have to visit us too often.
