What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a science, art and philosophy focused on the sophisticated relationship between the spine and the nervous system.


Our spine is so important because it protects our lifeline, or spinal cord, of the body and the connection between the brain and the rest of the body. Doctors of Chiropractic know that spinal misalignments (Subluxations) can interfere with the messages being sent between the brain and the rest of the body. That interference leads to a decrease in function, pain, loss of energy, dis-ease and ill health. Chiropractors use a gentle, specific, scientific adjustment to realign the bones in the spine and restore the nervous system and body back to optimum health. This allows the body to work at its best and heal from Above, Down, Inside, and Out NATURALLY.

 

Who can benefit from chiropractic care?

Everyone! Our office sees people of all ages from newborns to men and women in their 90s and 100s. Chiropractic care is utilized by those who are looking to get healthy and stay healthy. If you are looking to take your health to the next level and enjoy life to the fullest, you are perfect for Chiropractic care.

Drs. Joe and Jen receive chiropractic care on a regular basis to make sure they are better able to serve the people of Cincinnati. Dr. Jen specializes in pregnancy and pediatrics, so she has a great deal of experience with children as young as a few hours old. Our Doctors understand the importance of Chiropractic and know it is essential for health and vitality.

 

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

The Specific Scientific Chiropractic Adjustment performed in our office is a gentle swift force performed on a specific bone in the proper direction to correct nerve interference caused by misalignments in the spine. There are over 200 named Chiropractic adjusting techniques. Dr. Joe and Dr. Jen practice two of the oldest, most well researched techniques, Thompson and Activator. They are skilled in many other techniques to truly help each unique case that walks into our office.

 

Will it hurt?

Quite the contrary! Many people are apprehensive about seeking Chiropractic care for fear that the adjustments will hurt. In our office, Drs. Joe and Jen utilize chiropractic drop tables and the Activator. Although these tables are very noisy, the dropping mechanism takes on most of the force from the adjustment, which makes them extremely gentle. Those people coming to us with acute pain may experience some discomfort because they have very tender areas from a recent injury.

Many of our practice members look forward to their visits in the office and comment that they experience “decreased pressure, more energy and focus, less tension, diminished pain and more vitality.” We want to hear about how much better you feel as well!

 

Is Chiropractic safe?

Absolutely! Each and every person is unique; therefore, their care should be as well. We create your care based on not only your concerns, but also your physical exam, Digital Nerve and Muscle Assessment, and any x-rays we feel are necessary. It is not a “one size fits all” in this office, your care will be specific to you alone.

The best example of the safety of Chiropractic care is shown in our malpractice premiums. An OB/GYN can pay upwards of $200,000/year versus Chiropractors who pay around $3000/year. Everyone knows that any insurance company is taking the least amount of risks that they can, so they know Chiropractic care is EXTREMELY SAFE.

 

How long until I feel better?

This varies from person to person. Certain people have had their problems longer than others and for some it is more severe than others. When the concern has been there longer, it will take more care to correct the cause. During your first visit, our Doctors do a thorough consultation, exam and assessment. Then we bring you back for a second visit to go over the findings and let you know specifically what it is going to take to get you back to 100% HEALTH.

 

I tried chiropractic, but it didn’t help. Why should I try it again?

You deserve to be healthy and enjoy life. There are many types of Chiropractors and various techniques. Not everyone responds in the same way. It is truly about working with your body.

At Revelation Chiropractic, we utilize a state-of-the-art Myovision Digital Nerve and Muscle Assessment. The technology was designed by NASA and is Space Certified. In addition, we take Chiropractic Postural X-Rays that are necessary to give you the best care possible.

Don’t let your past encounter keep you from experiencing a healthy, happy life! Give us a call to see how we can help you and your family get on the road to better health.

 

Will I have to come for the rest of my life?

Not unless you want to continue improving or maintaining your health.

It is just like getting in shape. You cannot expect to go to the gym for a few weeks and be physically fit for the rest of your life. You have to keep going on a regular basis to maintain the muscle mass. Or, think about it this way, we have regular maintenance done on our cars and our teeth. If we do not, we usually see a decline in how well they work over time. And, if we ignore warning signs too long they may deteriorate beyond repair. We only have one spine and life to live, so we should take the best care of them that we can. Many of our practice members choose to make Chiropractic care a part of their healthy lifestyle choices.

 

Do you take my insurance? How much does it cost?

We work with most major insurance companies. Make sure to bring your insurance card with you on your first visit so we can make a copy and do a complimentary benefits check.

There is no way for us to know the costs associated until after that initial assessment. In addition, every insurance company is different and each policy they have includes different types of coverage. When you come in for your second visit in the office, we will go over your care plan in detail, as well as your insurance coverage.
