About the Nervous System
We welcome you and your family to discover how to get well and stay well. Through a traditional approach to chiropractic care, we use Gonstead technique to deliver gentle, precise adjustments to your spine.
While a healthy nervous system is the goal, we help realign your spine so your nervous system can function properly. We’ll teach you how chiropractic care helps your body heal on its own, from the inside out.
Let’s get started!
Your First Visit
When you arrive, you’ll complete paperwork before meeting with the Doctor. Please wear loose clothing and plan to spend around one hour with us. Your visit includes an initial examination using Gonstead Chiropractic methods -including a series of orthopedic and neurological tests and
- A careful exam of your spine using the Tempo-scope which reads temperature differences along your spine
- Temperature changes indicate that there is nervous pressure at these particular levels and we use this information to give specific adjustments
- Full Spine X-rays will allow us to correlate our previous findings to adjust only the segments of your spine where the nerve pressure is detected.
- An adjustment – we’ll adjust you accordingly using our gentle, precise Gonstead technique
At every visit we will use our Tempo-scope to check where you may be experiencing some nerve pressure. We check your entire spine each visit from “top to bottom.” This tool (or scope) measures temperature and tells us where you have inflammation caused by nerve pressure. This allows us to better determine where and when to adjust. Read more about our technique here.
As of October 1st 2023 Peninsula Chiropractic Center will be Accepting Forward Health/Medicaid insurance plans.
Regardless of your insurance coverage, payment will be due at each visit. We will gladly supply you with an insurance form or a receipt/statement that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. We have not changed our policies here, we have not participated in insurance networks.
If you have Medicare, you will pay as you go, we submit your claims daily and Medicare covers 80% of adjustment. If there is a secondary Medicare usually forwards remaining balance to them, but patient will start receiving checks to their home address usually around the 3-week mark of initial treatment.
(Example: adjustments are Medicare price $42.60- 80% of that is $34.08—patient responsibility is $8.52) Again to repeat and be clear, Medicare patients still pay the full amount of $42.60 at time of service and they will receive reimbursement check to their home address. We do not accept assignment.
Disability insurance: SAME as above for Medicare: full amount of $42.60 and Medicare will reimburse 80%.
if your care is covered, you will be reimbursed according to Medicare policy. .If you have questions about finances or insurance, feel free to give us a call.
Your Second Visit
When you return, we’ll go over the report of findings. We’ll review your X-rays and explain what we discovered and how we are going to approach your particular needs along with our recommendations for you and your care here. We want you to fully understand everything and leave with your questions answered.
We’ll then use our Tempo- scope to measure the heat differences along your spine. We then correlate our findings with your x-ray, and adjust you accordingly. Your spine works as a unit and we will always be looking for any changes as we continue your care. Our gentle adjustments are precise and effective in relieving your nerve pressure.
You can expect your second and regular visits to last about 15 minutes.
Invest in your health- Preventative.
You’re in here for a reason, probably wanting to feel better or feel even better. The best way for us to help you is to stabilize your health through chiropractic care. “Preventive care is Health care- waiting for pain or something to go wrong will take longer to respond,”
Most patients respond in 2-6 weeks of initial treatment and Doctor usually discusses along the way of “stabilization” and nervous system function. Getting adjusted while not feeling good helps healthier immune response. Your body is amazing, but with nerve pressure, you are falling short of health-ier patterns.
Kids response more rapidly, depending on HOW LONG the issues have been there, but babies and toddlers sleep better and poop better on a regular basis or adjustments.
We don’t, however, pressure anyone; we make our recommendations for care and let you make the decisions. We’ll re-evaluate your progress and tailor our recommendations to help you achieve the best results. We are excited about you experiencing the Gonstead difference.
