Is chiropractic manipulation safe?

Is chiropractic manipulation safe?
Yes, chiropractic manipulation is a very safe and effective treatment for most of the general population. If you are interested in seeing some research articles that discuss its safety and effectiveness, please ask us. We would be more than happy to sit down and talk with you about this if it is a concern of yours.

What will my appointment with the doctor be like?

At your first appointment, you will be asked to fill out some paperwork regarding your chief complaint and your past medical history. Then you will meet with Dr. Rachael or Dr. Nathan, and they will continue to ask you more details about each of those. After they have grasped an understanding of your personal history, they will perform a physical exam tailored to your chief complaint. At that time, they will discuss with you their findings and likely diagnosis. Treatment options will be discussed and upon consent, treatment will begin. It is possible that x-rays or other imaging may be needed, and if that is the case, your chiropractor will discuss that with you before any treatment begins.

How long are the appointments?

The initial appointment may last up to an hour, and potentially more, depending on your case history. Each subsequent appointment will be much shorter but may still vary depending on the severity of your case. At the minimum, you should plan to spend at least 15 minutes for each appointment.

Do you take my insurance?

Zionsville Family Chiropractic is in-network with some Anthem plans. If you have a different insurance carrier or are unsure of your insurance coverage, please call the office to talk with one of the receptionists. They will be happy to answer your questions. If we are not in-network with your insurance, we do offer a Time-of-Service discount for paying at the time services are rendered. If this is something you're interested in, please call the office for complete details.
