What should I expect during my chiropractic visit?


During your initial visit, you will need to fill out patient forms when you first arrive. This allows our chiropractor to review general information about you and your condition. After this our chiropractic physician will do a consultation and exam where he will discuss your health related concerns and perform a physical chiropractic exam. If Dr. Charles McDonald feels x-rays are needed due to your specific condition, this can be done right here in our office. Then you will receive a report of findings which lets you know if chiropractic care can help you and then a treatment plan will be discussed and recommended. After the treatment plan is decided a treatment is carried out and a treatment may be performed that day.




How much will treatment cost?


We accept most insurance, however; if you do not have chiropractic benefits on your insurance there are affordable cash pay options available.




How long will my treatment plan last?


You and Dr. Charles McDonald decide on the best treatment plan based on your condition and goals. His goal is to help you feel and function better quickly and return you to your desired lifestyle as quickly as possible. Many patients do continue to return for maintenance treatments when they feel it’s necessary after completing initial treatment. How long you benefit from chiropractic is always up to you!




Acupuncture


Acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese medicine where there are energy pathways that flow throughout the body. When there is disease there is a disruption in the flow of this energy that needs to be balanced. An analogy Dr. McDonald uses is that it is like traffic patterns but where some of the street lights are not synchronized. Stimulating various points on these pathways helps remove the traffic jam, thus balancing out the energy flow.

He likes to use acupuncture for a myriad of musculoskeletal conditions. This ranges from simple strains and sprains to more classic or complicated conditions. Balancing energy allows for balancing biomechanisms that alleviate pain.

Common conditions treated:

  • Neck and back pain

  • Headaches

  • arm or leg pain

  • extremity joint pains
