We can talk more about when to see a chiropractor in Alpharetta. A chiropractor is a doctor you would see for almost any non-emergency type problem. A chiropractor in Alpharetta can help with musculoskeletal issues and pain in any part of the body such as the neck, back, shoulder, feet, hands, ankles, fingers or ribs. A chiropractor in Alpharetta if trained in cranial adjusting can also help with problems with the skull such as headaches, dizziness or even jaw problems. A chiropractor trained in visceral manipulation in the Alpharetta area can help you with problems associated with the organs such as digestive problems, gall bladder problems, hiatal hernia, dropped bladder, dropped uterus, dropped prostate and a diaphragm in spasm. Many people don’t think that a chiropractor can help with anything other than neck or back pain. We typically see non-emergency type conditions. This may take a while for people to get used to seeing a chiropractor in Alpharetta for these problems rather than a medical doctor. If you injure yourself in Alpharetta and are unsure of the length of damage you can always go to your medical doctor first to assess if your injury requires surgery or casting. If your injury does not require any emergency procedures there is a good chance that a chiropractor in Alpharetta can help you. You can heal three to five times faster under the care of a chiropractor. This applies to injuries as well as sickness. Remember a chiropractor is restoring function to your nervous system by adjusting the bones of the spine back into their correct alignment. When the bones of the spine misalign they damage the delicate spinal nerves which then alters the signals sent by the brain going to the organs, muscles and glands. This alters the function of the organs, muscles and glands that this damaged nerve is going to. So a chiropractor in Alpharetta is the only doctor trained to adjust the bones of the spine to relieve damage to spinal nerves and restore function to the body.
At our practice Holistic Health Center, P.C. in Alpharetta we typically see all types of non-emergency type cases especially those people who have not responded to traditional medical care. A chiropractor can help restore function to your body in every area. Some specific cases we have helped with were a newborn was helped with reflux, a woman who after giving birth had leakage going up steps or jumping was corrected, a woman who’s stomach went flat after lifting up her bladder, a man’s low back pain corrected after adjusting the hips and lifting two dropped kidneys, two recent patients scheduled for shoulder surgery who no longer need surgery, a child who vomited twice a week at school now does not from having their spine adjusted and hiatal hernia corrected, a man who had excruciating chest like pain once every couple of weeks that medically was not explained was corrected through spinal adjustments and correcting a hiatal hernia, a teenager’s rapid shifts in personality were corrected by identifying food allergies and using therapeutic grade nutritional supplements to name a few.
A chiropractor in Alpharetta can be specialized in many areas outside of their traditional training as we talked about in previous articles. You need to find the chiropractor in Alpharetta that you need for the conditions you have. Mostly a chiropractor in Alpharetta will offer free consultations so you can meet with the doctor and find out about how they run their practice and see if it’s a good fit for you or not. You may have to just start care with a chiropractor in Alpharetta to see if you respond to their treatment. You may really like a particular doctor you are seeing because you have been going to see this particular chiropractor for so long or they are your neighbor yet you are not getting the results you need. Although it may be hard the chiropractor will understand if the issues you suffer from are outside the scope of their area of training. As a chiropractor we want you to feel better, functioning at one hundred percent and living life to its fullest. Your chiropractor will understand.
One thing to mention when choosing a chiropractor in Alpharetta is whether they accept insurance or not. This seems to be a question on people’s minds when looking for a chiropractor in Alpharetta. Now insurance companies have gotten quite wiley. By this I mean they have gotten very good at making sure the policies work better for them then you. Now of course there are exceptions yet they are few. When you find an in-network chiropractor in Alpharetta you pay a copay whatever that amount is and you are not typically subject to your deductible or if you are it is much lower than if you find an out of network chiropractor in Alpharetta. The deductible is the amount you pay out of pocket before the insurance will start to cover your care. What they don’t tell you is you are also subject to a board of doctors who review your case and decide how much treatment you need. Yes you heard me correct. They have doctors who have never seen you, talked to you, examined you, nothing deciding on some forms you and your treating doctor have filled out how many visits you deserve. It’s never the amount you need from what I’ve experienced. This is what caused me to not accept insurance in my practice anymore at Holistic Health Center, P.C. in Alpharetta. Then if you go to see an out of network chiropractor in Alpharetta you pay whatever the practice charges for services and you submit these receipts to your insurance company for reimbursement. You are now subject to your deductible so once the services paid for exceed this amount the insurance company starts to reimburse you with checks in the mail. Doesn’t sound so bad, right? Well that’s if they reimburse you without a hassle, some do. Bottom line is, don’t wait for your insurance to get you better, you might be waiting a long time. Find a chiropractor in Alpharetta you like and trust and feel they understand what is wrong and how to help you. If insurance gives you some money back than great and if not oh well, at least your healthy.
