Completely! In fact, most of our patients (including kids) are relieved to hear there is no twisting, popping, or cracking of your neck; eliminating the potential risk of ligamentous trauma. The correction is so gentle, the only thing our patients feel is the weight of the doctors hand behind their ear.
And regarding the x-rays, the radiation exposure is EXTREMELY low. In fact, a flight to Paris from LA is 28 times the radiation exposure of a NUCCA x-ray series.
Here’s exactly how insurance works:
We charge $395 for the initial NUCCA assessment.
Depending on the results from the assessment, Dr. Burt will most likely be recommending a course of care of approximately 14 visits over the next 90 days that will balance out to be around $1600.
There are several different ways to pay, from financing options to monthly payment plans. You will not be expected to pay the full fee on your first visit.
We do ask for a 90 day commitment to complete the stabilization period.
Most of our patients experience immediate relief after their first correction. However, recovery from the long-term effects of the misaligned spine takes about one month for each year the spine has been misaligned.
We love it when our patients feel good! However, pain and symptoms are usually the last to show up.
Even though the pain is gone, the problem may still be there. We recommend that you complete your care plan and check in periodically afterwards to ensure the root problem is under control.
No! Although most of our patients choose to continue care after their care plan, they understand they can stop at any time.
Our patients also find they feel better when they are checked every month or so. They are either reassured that they are maintaining their correction, or, they are relieved to be corrected again.
First, chiropractic is NOT a treatment for low back pain. However, all the nerves in your body (including your low back) pass through your neck. If you have a head and neck misalignment, this can disturb the nerves that go to your low back, and other parts of your body.
With our initial assessment, we will be able to tell you if your problem is stemming from your neck, low back or somewhere else.
