Frequently Asked Questions
Can I "crack" my own neck and back?
Many people feel that if they can make their spines "pop", they have adjusted themselves. Although, the popping sound often occurs when you are being adjusted, an adjustment is much more involved than that. It requires knowing where, when and how to mobilize an improperly moving joint. Learning how to correctly adjust the spine and extremities takes many years to master. For those who prefer adjustments that do not cause the popping sound, we have different adjusting techniques we can utilize.
Can I go to the chiropractor if I am under the care of another provider?
Absolutely. Having subluxations (an improperly moving joint that affects your health and how your body feels and functions) corrected is important no matter what other care you may be receiving. Depending on the circumstances, modifications may be necessary in how we adjust you and receiving an adjustment is rarely contra-indicated. By teaming up with other health care providers, outcomes are often improved.
Do I need a referral from my PCP in order to come see you?
Most insurances do not require a referral in order to have an examination or be under care. We do our best to have your insurance benefits verified before your first appointment. If a referral is required, we will notify you as soon as we are aware.
What is the Webster Technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment utilized on pregnant mothers. If a baby is known to be in the breech position, by adjusting a misaligned pelvis and helping to relax round ligaments that are tight, more room is often created in-utero. With more room to move around, a baby has a greater opportunity to get into the best possible position for birth. Dr. Stacey and Dr. Mike are both certified in the Webster Technique.
