FAQs

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Visits are $40.00. We will, of course, work to help arrange a a convenient payment plan if necessary.

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO COME?
That decision is always yours to make. Obviously, injuries that have been building over a lifetime will take weeks to months to begin to stabilize and longer to correct as completely as possible. Then you get to decide how long you want to have and keep that healthier spine, nervous system and body.

HOW LONG ARE THE VISITS?
Generally about five minutes.

HOW OLD SHOULD YOU BE TO BEGIN RECEIVING ADJUSTMENTS?
The birth process is a very traumatic experience for most of us, and it takes its toll on the spine and nervous system. Add to that the stresses and strains from creeping, crawling, learning to walk, falling, playing and so forth along with the rapid growth of the young body and the potential for injury and damage is large. We recommend having your infants examined for subluxations of the spine at the earliest possible opportunity after birth.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN PRACTICE?
Since 1976.

DO ADJUSTMENTS HURT?
Most people feel wonderful when they get adjusted. Young children sometimes argue about who gets to go first, and sometimes young infants are adjusted while sleeping and are not disturbed at all. Of course, if there is enough damage to some of the areas of the spine, there may be some initial discomfort.

WHAT'S THAT NOISE THAT I HEAR?
Nobody knows for sure, but it’s thought to be a type of interaction between the fluids and the gasses that occur naturally in the joints of your body for lubrication.

WILL I GET TO MEET THE DOCTOR DURING THE FIRST VISIT?
Yes. Before the first visit evaluation you will have an opportunity to discuss your situation in detail with Dr. Ward.

IS THE DOCTOR RESPONSIVE TO QUESTIONS?
Yes, as time permits during the visit. Or special telephone consultations can be arranged so that others are not unduly delayed in the office. There are also workshops in the office most Tuesday nights where a great deal of information is discussed, and a lot of questions answered.

WILL I BE ADJUSTED ON THE FIRST VISIT?
No. The information that we get during that first visit needs to be correlated with the x-rays, that need to be evaluated. We need to be sure that we have all the information that we need before we start work ing on your spine.
