FAQ

Do I have to have insurance? Will care be expensive?

At Kuhn Chiropractic, a majority of our patients are self-pay or cash patients. We offer affordable by-visit pricing which covers manipulations and any needed therapies. Students and seniors receive a discounted rate. In cases where longer-term care is needed, we do offer payment plans.

What kind of education does a chiropractor receive?

Doctors of Chiropractic are well educated. After graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) Degree, each candidate passes the demanding four part National Board Examinations. Then, doctors apply to a governmental or professional licensing board and pass a still more difficult test before being granted the privilege to practice. A chiropractor’s education, however, never ends. Dr. Kuhn graduated from Life Chiropractic College, and undertook education at National-Lincoln School of Postgraduate Education.

Do children need chiropractic care?

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off can be traced to the spine. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and are healthier than their peers.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic is a conservative and natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or drugs. Chiropractic care is non-invasive; therefore, the body’s response to chiropractic care is far more predictable than its reactions to drug treatments or surgical procedures. In fact, as a measure of safety-concerns, Chiropractors’ malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors. Chiropractic care is safe for children, pregnant women, and the elderly.

Is chiropractic care painful?

Most chiropractic adjustments are painless. In fact, chiropractic treatment can help many patients enjoy immediate pain relief.  However, if the patient has suffered a recent injury, adjustments can cause slight discomfort/soreness as the tissues involved are usually inflamed. That is why we offer a combination of therapies to minimize discomfort, soreness or stiffness.
