Like other Lincoln chiropractors, at Chiropractic FIRST we hear many questions from all of our chiropractic patients. Below are some of the most common questions and answers:
How much does chiropractic care cost?
Our Lincoln, NE chiropractic office strives to make care affordable for each individual and their families. We offer custom–made care plans for cash patient, patients with insurance, and families. The patient’s total investment reflects a variety of factors. The three most important being the severity of the health challenge, that particular individual’s particular insurance benefits (as deductibles and copays vary with each plan), and the patient’s choice of plan selection.
Can I utilize my insurance benefits:
Prior to your first visit, our office will perform a complimentary insurance benefit check. We will let you know what you coverage is, if any, and we will gladly electronically file your claims for you.
What Major Insurance Carriers Do You Accept?
Currently, we accept all major commercial insurance carriers in Lincoln, NE, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, Cigna, Aetna, Midland’s Choice, as well as Medicare. We do not accept assignment with Medicaid, but we do offer affordable cash plans for our patients with Medicaid.
How Long is the First Visit?
We strive for efficiency and excellence in our office. As such, the first visit generally takes about a half hour time investment on the patient’s part, provided the new patient application is completed prior to the appointment.
I Heard Once I Get Adjusted, I Have to Keep Getting Adjusted Forever. Is that true?
We hear this a lot. And while it is true that the majority of our patients continue to utilize our services for a lifetime, it is not something we make you do. Our chiropractic office exists to serve our patient’s needs, whatever those might be. Generally speaking, our patients CHOOSE to continue their care to maximize their health and minimize their annual medical expenses.
What Happens After the End of My Initial Care Plan?
A complete re-evaluation will be completed to determine how much objective change has been made. These findings will be reported, and we’ll have a honest discussion on how we can best serve you in the future.
I See a lot of Kids Getting Adjusted in Your Office – Is that Even Safe?
Our Pediatric Lincoln NE Chiropractor absolutely loves helping the next generation grow up health and drug free. It is vital that kids have their nervous systems checked and optimized, as their nervous system controls all growth and function in the body. As an added bonus, we constantly hear from our pediatric patients’ parents that all the kids in school are sick…except their child!
We adjust children utilizing low force techniques, namely KST, which uses an instrument to release subluxation. There is no “cracking” or “popping” for our pediatric patients, who always leave smiling 🙂
What kind of Pediatric Issues Can You Treat?
Our Lincoln chiropractic office aims to maximize nerve flow in our child patients. The only issue we “treat” per se is subluxation. As a result of increased nerve flow, the body’s natural healing response is optimized, and we have seen excellent outcomes with the following conditions:
- Ear Infections/Colds/Allergies
- Autism/Spectrum Disorders
- Difficulty Nursing
Can I Still Get Adjusted if I am Pregnant?
Absolutely – it is actually one of the most important times to get adjusted. Besides the research showing that mom’s staying regularly adjusted during pregnancy observe the benefits of vastly reduced labor times, more comfortable labor, and reduced pain throughout the pregnancy period, it allows for vital nerve flow to the fetus for optimal growth and development!
