No. Chiropractic procedures do not include invasive procedures like surgery or medication. Those methods fall under the heading of medical treatment. Instead, Chiropractic works to clear what is preventing your body from healing & functioning normally.
Dr. Schneider has been taking care of patients with a variety of special needs throughout his career, including pregnant and post surgical cases, with excellent results. Pregnant patients receive specialized care using chiropractic tables that have been designed with their comfort in mind. Many times pregnant patients suffer needlessly with spinal issues, unaware that there is an effective, safe option for them. The health of their spine affects the health of their developing child, so it makes a lot of sense for “moms to be” to receive Chiropractic care.
The trauma of the delivery process, childhood falls, pranks and athletic injuries are just a few great reasons to have your children checked. Don't wait for them to be in pain, optimize their health now. Keeping their spine aligned helps keep them healthy and “off-loads” the spinal stress from activity related injuries. It’s the smart thing to do.
Spines that are more delicate respond best to gentler procedures, which we utilize almost exclusively. However, it's important to realize that spines that have advanced osteoporosis, surgical interventions, arthritis and disc degeneration are going to require more care and have a slower and less complete recovery.
With rare exception ...we do not provide care for auto accident injuries even though the doctor has advanced certification in this area. We are focused on optimizing our patients' health, rather than navigating the legal landscape of law suits, depositions, and insurance liens. However, you are free to call us and discuss your situation further in the off chance we are willing to accept your case.
Some patients have health insurance and others don’t. We do participate in a variety of plans. However, many plans, even those that we don’t participate in, may actually have higher out-of-pocket expenses than our normal fees. In those cases, it may be more affordable not using your health insurance (which you have the right to do in the state of North Carolina)! So, to be absolutely sure about what your costs will be, contact our office staff, and they will check on it for you. We have a significant number of patients that don’t have health insurance or have plans that don’t cover Chiropractic care. Most elect to receive care anyway because they find it of great value.
