Do you have to adjust/crack me? Do you have to dry needle me? 

No! In fact our chiropractor employs many different techniques, so if you are not comfortable with one, she will be able to find another that you do feel comfortable with. 

I don’t have pain, but I would like to move better. Is this something you can help with?

Yes! Of course. Our chiropractor loves helping to make changes in order for people to perform optimally in whatever it is they do. 

What is dry needling? 

Dry needling is a treatment used to ease muscular pain, treat strained/torn muscles, relax overactive muscles and release muscular trigger points. Active trigger points can cause local or referred pain, weakness or restricted range of motion. 

A fine acupuncture needles is used in the target muscle which interrupts pain signals, disperses pain causing chemicals, and stimulates repair within the area. 

Is chiropractic bulk billed, i.e. does medicare cover my appointments with the chiropractor? 

No, unfortunately Chiropractic is not covered by medicare.
