It’s more than you might think. Chiropractic is a natural health
care approach with the goal of allowing the body to function and heal
naturally. Sure, it helps with back and neck pain and a lot of other symptoms.
But the real purpose is to remove interference from the nerves, allowing
your inborn intelligence in your brain to heal the body-naturally.
Chiropractors call our technique an “adjustment.” An adjustment
is performed by specifically aligning a vertebra of the spine to remove
the pressure from the nerve, which allows that nerve to send the proper
signals without interference.

Adjustments rarely hurt. In fact, they usually feel great! The most common
side effect from an adjustment is muscle soreness, similar to how you
might feel after a good workout.

The nerves that run through the spine spread out over your whole body and
control all the different parts, including all the muscles and organs.
If any part of your spine is misaligned (especially the small bone that
holds up and balances your skull) it can literally affect any part of
your body. Check out this
nerve chart to see for yourself!
The length of a person’s chiropractic care is based on the health
goals of that individual. Some people choose to be adjusted just until
their symptoms go away. Most choose to make chiropractic care a part of
their regular health care plan for themselves and their families. They
choose this both because they realize the benefits of continued chiropractic
care, but also because they learn how the body works. As an example, consider
the field of orthodontics. You may begin with a treatment plan to widen
the palette, then add braces to re-align the teeth. You understand the
need to return regularly for adjustments to the braces in order to train
the jaw bones. After the braces are removed, you return for regular check-ups
until your orthodontic work is complete. Then you continue seeing a dentist
for cleaning and regular maintenance of the teeth. The bones of the spine
also need regular adjustments to keep them in optimal health. The doctor
will make his best recommendations for you, but ultimately, how long you
benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
Most insurances offer some type of out-of-network chiropractic coverage.
We will provide you with all the information you need to get reimbursement
from your insurance company if they offer coverage. Because we do not
directly participate with insurance companies, we can keep our prices
lower, and you can expect to deal with our office directly regarding your finances.
We work hard to keep our prices fair and reasonable. Our standard, single
office visit price is currently $45. However, this price does not reflect
the significant savings we can offer those who choose to make chiropractic
part of their regular health care plan. We offer incredibly low-priced
family care plans at Johnson City Family Chiropractic because we want
to encourage people to bring in their kids. We believe in whole health
for the whole family! Call or stop by our office for more details about
our family care plans.
Yes, our doctors adjust kids of all ages and sizes for all kinds of reasons.
We commonly help children with things you might expect like falls, sports
injuries or scoliosis. But we also help kids with health challenges like
ear infections, feeding problems, growing pains, headaches and indigestion.
If it seems strange to think about adjusting a baby, consider this: Two
of the most common ways to develop nerve-irritating misalignments are
by passing through the birth canal and by falling while learning how to
walk. We love helping kids optimize their health and get a great start
to life with regular chiropractic care-and parents love having healthy,
drug-free kid!
Physical therapists are trained to work on the muscles and to help a person
regain strength and flexibility. Chiropractors are trained to work with
the nervous system, which controls and organizes the muscles and organs.
We help restore and maintain the overall health of our patients, not just
work with muscle and joint injuries. Because of that, many people choose
to make their chiropractor their primary health care provider.
The noise you may hear during an adjustment is caused by a small gas bubble
inside the joint; it’s
not the bones making the noises.

Dr. Keith generally recommends supplements from
Standard Process. These supplements are whole food products that provide all the micro-nutrients
needed in order for the body to absorb the product without depleting the
body of nutrients. In contrast, cheap over-the-counter supplements are
synthetic, often include chemical ingredients, and often require the body
to contribute other micro-nutrients in order to properly utilize it. If
you are interested in ordering supplements, please call the office or
speak with Dr. Keith or his staff.
