How Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic works by correcting postural imbalances and misalignments that happen to our bodies over time. Years of stress, poor posture, old accidents and injuries, as well as new technology strains can cause our spines to shift out of normal alignment and lock up, giving rise to abnormal stress on our nervous systems. This misalignments are called subluxations. Chiropractors utilize the adjustment to correct subluxations by correcting alignment to take pressure off the nerves and allow the body to heal naturally, without the use of drugs or surgery.

Why Should I see a Chiropractor?

Chiropractic is the safest most effective way to help conditions like back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Those are not the only reasons, however, to see a chiropractor. Many patients come to us for allergies, asthma, digestive issues, and to boost their immune systems. Many athletes just want their bodies to function at their optimum level and use chiropractic care to remain in the best possible shape. People of all ages utilize chiropractic care to be the healthiest versions of themselves.

Does your office take X-rays?

Yes. We have state-of-the-art digital X-ray on site. During the consultation and examination, the doctor will determine if X-rays are necessary. During the review of findings, you will be shown your X-rays and where the problems are.

How many adjustments will I need?

How many adjustments you will need and how long your care plan is will be different for every patient. A thorough consultation, examination, and, likely, X-rays will determine where the problems are and how long it will take to correct them. All care plans are presented to the patient before any care commences.

Does your office accept insurance?

Yes. Kinney Chiropractic does participate with most insurance plans. If you have specific questions about your insurance, please don’t hesitate to call the office and speak to one of our team members.

Do you treat children?

Yes. We treat children of all ages, from newborns to adolescence. We care for children with colic, allergies/sinus problems, and stomach issues, just to name a few. We also see children on the spectrum and treat young athletes. Pain is not normal, especially in kids. If your child is complaining of aches or pains – or something does not seem right and you want all-natural, drug-free care – definitely consider chiropractic.

Does your office accept credit card or cash payments?

Yes. We understand that not all insurance plans cover Chiropractic. We also see insurance plans that have high deductibles where care cannot be covered by insurance. We totally get it. Which is why Kinney Chiropractic always provides different payment options and arrangements to make it easy for patients to pay out of pocket for their care.

Do you treat pregnant patients?

Yes. Pregnancy is very hard on the female body. Chiropractic is the drug-free way to help with the aches, pains, and stresses associated with pregnancy. We have specific tables that can accommodate our pregnant moms and also utilize techniques to help our pregnant patients have the best experience throughout their entire term, labor, and delivery.

Do you have weekend hours?

We do not have weekend hours in our Belmar location, but at our sister office in Jackson we do offer hours every other Saturday. Patients are free to be seen at either location.

Do you treat headaches?

Yes. We treat many different kinds of headaches, from tension headaches to migraines and beyond. Often headaches don’t stem from your head…they start in the neck. A thorough consultation, exam, and X-rays will determine what the cause(s) of your headaches. Based on our findings, we will put together a specific care plan to get rid of your headaches.
