What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an approach to health care in which the physician treats neurological and/or musculoskeletal disorders by correcting misalignments in the spine called Subluxations. Every person has a nervous system consisting of your brain and your nerves. Your brain is constantly sending messages to your body via your nerves and this is how your body knows how to function properly.

Throughout our lives we put a lot of wear and tear on our bodies. This could be from sitting at a computer all day, doing a lot of physical work, or maybe even a trauma like a previous motor vehicle accident. The stress on our bodies eventually starts to shift the bones of our spine out of place and when that happens it squeezes down and irritates the nerves that go through the bones of the spine. This is called a Subluxation. Not only does it irritate the nerves but it affects whatever is on the end of that nerve. Most people who have a subluxation notice something is off because they have an increase in muscle tension or pain and inflammation. Often times this can further progress into conditions like headaches or sciatica.

Chiropractors are trained to find these subluxations or misalignments in the spine and help move them back into place with a Chiropractic Adjustment. By doing so we can take pressure off of your nervous system and have you feeling your absolute best.

What is an Adjustment?

An adjustment is when the Chiropractor provides a controlled thrust by the use of hands or instrument to move misaligned vertebra back into their proper alignment. Often time’s people may hear an audible pop or crack similar to if they popped their fingers. This is often what happens when the adjustment is performed with the use of hands.

Some patients don’t like to hear the popping noise. If this is the case we also provide instrument adjusting. Instrument adjusting uses a light force but quicker adjustment technique for people who want a gentler approach to their adjustments. Each method is effective, it just depends on the patient’s preference.

Chiropractic adjustments are quite relaxing and many times people start feeling looser right away. If you’ve never been adjusted before Dr. Baumann will walk you step by step through the adjustment process.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes we do! We are in-network with most insurance companies. We will do a courtesy benefit check for you so you know exactly what type of coverage you have.

How are you different from other Chiropractors?

Pivotal Chiropractic & Wellness is a Correction Based Office. Many times people go to the Chiropractor for a couple of adjustments and they usually feel better for a few days. Before long those same issues come right back. At Pivotal Chiropractic it’s our goal to find a long term solution for your problem. We provide a very thorough examination and have onsite X-ray to help find the cause of your problem.

Once we figure out what is causing the problem we get it corrected with the use of adjustments, soft tissue work, traction, and rehabilitation services. No one problem is the same and neither is the treatment. Our treatment depends on what the problem is and what you want to achieve with your health goals in our office.

What happens on my first appointment?

Once you arrive at the office you will be greeted at the front desk. We have a small amount of paperwork for you to fill out. If you are planning on submitting to an insurance company we will have you bring a copy of your insurance card. Once you’re done with the paperwork you will be able to sit down with Dr. Baumann and have a conversation where you can tell him what type of problem you’re having as well and any goals you want to see happen as a result of your care.

I’ve never been to a Chiropractor before and I’m nervous.

Not a problem. At Pivotal Chiropractic we make everything as simple as possible. Dr. Baumann will walk you through everything step by step so you know what to expect. It is our goal to make you feel as comfortable as possible so you leave the office having an amazing experience!

Do you just work on backs?

No, we work on all different areas of the body.  We frequently see patients with jaw pain, wrist problems, knee pain, shoulders issues, and more.
