Chiropractic Appointment

We are experts in the language of healthy backs.

We know a great life begins with a healthy back. Your spine is the foundation your entire framework is built upon. Built into the spine are the gateways through which nerve impulses send their life-giving messages. Your spine is smart. It was constructed with a purpose and with a design that’s built to last. It is a living piece of architecture that yearns for good alignment and full amounts of movement. Your spine has potential that you may not be living up to.

Statement of Faith

“At Core Chiropractic, we strive to serve our practice members with the same sense of love and compassion for others that Jesus demonstrated. We openly follow his example of how to love and serve others.
We believe that the human body is God’s design and that the spine was engineered to work at its best when it is free to move the way it was created. Being His workmanship means that He put a lot of thought into us. The more our spine functions according to plan, in good health, the more it shows off His goodness and the greater joy it brings us. At Core Chiropractic, we honor this truth and we know that the greatest success comes when we allow your spine to get back into alignment and agreement with His design.”

“Honor the body. Honor its design and its designer. Move the body closer to order; where God designed it to live and function, and you can begin to expect greater things from it.”

– Dr. Oscar Posada, D.C.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Chiropractors Doctors?

Yes. Chiropractors receive a bachelor degree and then continue on to a 3-4 year post graduate doctorate program from an accredited institution. Upon completion of credits, the chiropractor must also pass national board examinations as directed by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE), as well as a state board examination.

How much does a Chiropractor cost, does Medicare cover?

As with any treatment, the Chiropractic adjustment/treatment is based on the individual’s needs so cost can vary. Though there is no “one-size-fits-most” treatment, on average adjustments can range from $35-65 dollars. Many major medical insurance providers, including Medicare, cover some form of treatment from a chiropractor, however every health care insurance policy is different and it is up to the patient to call his/her provider and ask what is covered.

What do Chiropractors do, how does it work?

Essentially, Chiropractors are concerned with restoring proper movement to areas of the spine that have fallen into a poor alignment, poor movements, or have become simply stuck in some way. These spine problems are most often due to postural distortions or injuries. If you think of your spine as having a design where function and proper painless movement is the normal, then you can think of misaligned or stuck spinal bones as places where your spine is out of agreement with the normal design. Chiropractors restore agreement between you and your spine and allow them to return to normal function. Once function is restored, pain often goes away.

What toxins are released after Chiropractic Adjustments?

Often there can be a release of lactic acid as spasmed muscle groups begin to relax.

Are Chiropractors safe?

When this question comes up, the concern is usually surrounding the perceived risk around neck manipulations/adjustments and stroke. To answer the question: By and large, yes, chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for back and neck pain for both you and your family. That being said, like any medical intervention there is always risk. The good news is the actual rate of injuries that occur from chiropractic adjustments is incredibly low. Since most people’s concerns over safety revolve around spinal neck manipulations let’s look at the actual numbers. The actual rate of association between neck manipulation and stroke is less than 1 case per 1 million. To give that number some context, the overall risk of death from spine surgery is 1800 per million; the risk of serious side effects/death from cervical spine (neck) surgery is 500 per million; the risk of death from combined use of NSAIDS/aspirin is 153 per million; the risk of death from aspirin alone is 25 per million. So to reiterate, the actual rate of association between neck manipulation and stroke is less than 1 case per 1 million. Furthermore, in the November 2021 issue of the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease, a study was published in which the authors concluded that there was no excessive risk of carotid artery stroke after chiropractic care.

Chiropractors are among some of the safest primary care physicians you can seek out.

Can Chiropractors help with Sciatica/TMJ?

Yes and Yes. Sciatica is an irritation of the Sciatic nerve which is actually a bundled nerve made up of 5 spinal nerve roots. The nerve roots exit the spine at the levels of L4, L5, S1,S2, & S3. When the spine is mechanically disturbed or stuck in these areas, chiropractic adjustments are often very successful in fixing this problem.

TMJ, or more correctly, TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction), is very commonly helped with chiropractic treatments for the neck and Temporomandibular joint itself. Dr. Posada is certified in TMJD correction.

Do Chiropractors take insurance?

Yes, but not all insurances participate with chiropractors. It is generally considered the patient’s responsibility to understand what their health insurance covers.

Can Chiropractors prescribe medication?

No. Chiropractic as a profession has always been a drug-free intervention by choice. Chiropractic is not against medicine, but chiropractors choose to rely on their adjustment to help the patient’s body to heal once the spine comes back into agreement with itself and its design.
