Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take Insurance in your office?
We don’t accept or bill health insurances at Jaicks Spine and Sport for the benefit of our patients. We have found that insurance co-pays are often around the same price or higher than the flat fee we charge. Insurances also place strict guidelines on what areas can be treated and how long they be treated. The end result is often less treatment for the same or more money, and we feel it unacceptable to have our patients care dictated for them.
How long are visits?
Initial visits are 45-60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your conditions. This allows time for a comprehensive evaluation, education on what your issues are and how you will be helped, and your treatment. Follow up visits are 20-25 minutes
If my pain is gone, why do I need to get treated?
Pain is often the last thing to arrive, and the first thing to go. The body takes time to change and adapt for bad and for good, so the underlying cause of your symptoms often remains for some time after pain is gone. We want to make sure your results last and transition you into preventative care, instead of perpetually reacting when pain or injury arise.
I've heard once you go to a chiropractor you can never stop. Is that true?
Your health is ultimately in your hands. Once our patients see the benefits of our treatments and the value of investing in themselves, they typically receive maintenance care periodically. Like changing the oil in your car, consistent chiropractic care has long lasting health benefits.
How many times do I have to come see you?
We don’t do the same “cookie cutter” treatment plan for every patient. It depends on what your condition is, how long you’ve had it, etc… Dr. Jaicks typically sees significant symptom improvement in just a few visits, and uses subsequent visits to transitions you into wellness or maintenance care.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You can reach us at the office over the phone, via email, or schedule through the website here.
How is Myofascial release different from massage?
Massage is usually performed to increase circulation, reduce muscular byproducts, and promote relaxation on a general scale throughout the tissues of the body. This is done without any assistance from the patient. Myofascial release targets specific sites of an irritated or injured muscle to break through restrictions and scar tissue formation. Treatments often require specific movements from the patients to address the neuromuscular component of the issue and restore proper function.
