Frequently Asked Questions
Like other chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Simply by restoring your body’s own ability to be healthy. Every part of your body is designed to resist ill health. The 24 bones of the spinal column can commonly lose normal motion and interfere with the body’s nerve control, resulting in organic malfunction.
The Chiropractic approach is to locate and correct interferences to this ability so the body can return to health on its own. This is why Chiropractic can have a positive effect on many health conditions that don’t seem to be “back” problems.
How long should I continue Chiropractic care??
Chiropractic is a “long-term” cost-effective approach to health care. Prevention is always cheaper, less painful, and more effective than “crisis management.” Some patients only visit a Chiropractor when they are in pain, but this is like visiting a dentist only when you have a toothache.
In the long run, you would have more toothaches! Chronic problems that took years to appear will take time to heal – and you want to make sure they don’t return. A schedule of preventative visits with your Bloomington IL Chiropractor helps maintain good health.
Do you accept insurance?
We are happy to bill your insurance for you. At Bly Family Chiropractic we discuss the financial aspect of your care with you after you meet with the doctor. We offer a several payment plans as well as Care Credit. We strive to keep the costs as affordable as possible along with recognizing what the patient needs to feel better.
Should I still have an adjustment if I am sick with the flu?
Definitely! The nervous system controls and functions all systems of the body including the immune system. So, by keeping your nervous system in alignment, you are also keeping your immune system healthy as well. We actually encourage our patients at Bly Family Chiropractic to get adjusted while they are sick. Getting an adjustment will boost your immune system and help you fight that flu or cold bug.
Does Chiropractic help with herniated discs?
