5 Things to Know About Chiropractic Care
Visiting a chiropractor for the first time can be a little intimidating. Our chiropractors at Millar Chiropractic Clinics put together five things you should know before your visit to ease your mind.
1. Chiropractors Do More Than “Crack Your Back”
When thinking about going to a chiropractor, most people visualize lying on a table and hearing their spine crack. While chiropractors do provide spinal adjustments, this is just one aspect of chiropractic care. At Millar Chiropractic Clinics, our chiropractors in Madison and Huntsville also provide services like:
- Massage therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Nutrition and lifestyle coaching
- Laser therapy and more
2. Insurance Sometimes Covers Chiropractic Care
While not always the case, some insurance policies cover chiropractic care. This often depends on the purpose of the visit and may require a referral from your primary care physician. Check with your insurer before making an appointment.
3. Your Treatment Will Be Personalized
Chiropractic care is not a one size fits all treatment. Instead, your treatment plan is personalized to your needs. Your treatment plan begins with a consultation. During this time, one of our chiropractors will assess your health and any complaints you have to determine the best course of treatment.
4. Chiropractic Care Is Safe
Visiting a chiropractor is one of the safest ways to heal your body. The goal of chiropractic care is to set your body back to its natural state. This is accomplished without the use of medication or invasive procedures like surgery. Additionally, it is a holistic therapy. This means that we focus on treating the body as a whole, not just the injured area.
5. Chiropractors Are Experts in Anatomy
Chiropractors have learned how the body works as a whole. This education makes us experts on the nervous system, physical anatomy, bone and muscle function, and more. We will create a treatment plan that addresses all of these areas, providing pain relief and supporting the recovery process.
