Frequently Asked Questions
At Express Chiropractic Schertz we believe everyone should have access to convenient and affordable chiropractic wellness care.
Studies show that show that chiropractic care has benefits for not only feeling better but staying well and preventing future problems. While at the beginning of care you may need more frequent care, an occasional ‘pain free’ checkup is also important to help maintain better spine health and nerve flow.
At Express, we believe the decision on how much care you need should be between you and your Schertz Chiropractor rather than dictated by an insurance company or other 3rd party payer.
Depending factors such as age, your job, old injuries and overall health, maintaining a healthy spine is often times a long-term investment…not a short-term expense.
What is Wellness or Maintenance Care?
Old injuries stemming from sports, slips and falls and even auto accidents can cause a spine to become subluxated or misaligned. But even putting past trauma aside, there is still plenty you do on a daily basis that puts wear and tear on your body. From sleep and work postures to working out and even commuting in your care, the associated stress can cause spinal bones to lose their proper alignment.
While the words wellness and maintenance have slightly different definitions technically, in chiropractic care they share a common meaning of regular spine checks for the purpose of maintaining proper spine alignment – regardless of if you are experiencing any pain. By detecting and correcting misalignment of spinal bones before it becomes significant enough to interfere with the nerves that exit out between them you are improving the overall health of your spine and quality of your life.
Your maintenance chiropractic care should of course be coupled with a proper diet and adequate levels of exercise.
What is Muscle Relief Therapy (MRT)?
Muscle Relief Therapy is a deep (to your individual tolerance level) massage and stretching combination that is administered to the specific area or areas where you are needing help getting the muscles to relax. The therapist may use any one of the following techniques during the session…
– Myofascial Release: A localized massage to the affected muscles designed to lengthen and ‘release’ tight muscles.
– Trigger Point Therapy: Pressure – typically static or with slight motion – on the area of tight muscle or ‘knot’ to stimulate the muscle spasm to release.
– PNF Stretching: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching is an effective stretching technique that can relieve tension in muscles that support the neck and back to muscles in the arms and legs.
MRT is a very quick and effective stand alone service and also a great compliment to the chiropractic adjustment.
What Services does Express Chiropractic offer?
Express Chiropractic & Wellness keeps the care simpel providing only chiropractic and massage care.
The only condition we diagnose and treat is Vertebral Subluxation Complex (improper spinal bone alignment and motion and the associated muscle tension, joint inflammation, and nerve interference). Restoring proper motion and alignment is achieved through what is commonly called an Adjustment.
Massage services become important in correcting subluxations because more often than not, a misaligned spinal bones will lead to increased muscle tension called Spasm.
Your Schertz massage therapist is trained to pinpoint and relieve the muscle spasm using Muscle Relief Therapy or MRT.
What is Chiropractic and is it Safe?
‘Chiropractic’ is a word that simply means ‘done by hand.’ Originating in the late 1800’s in the United States, it has become a well accepted and documented treatment type to help align spinal bones that lose proper motion and alignment (called a ‘subluxation’). If you have ever experienced chiropractic care, you know it is much more than just pain relief – it can help improve the overall integrity and function of your entire nervous system resulting in MORE ENERGY, BETTER POSTURE, IMPROVED SLEEP, OPTIMAL ORGAN FUNCTION AND MANY MORE BENEFITS…
While an adjustment is considered to be safe, as evidenced by a New Zealand government study and others, you should notify your chiropractor of any pre-existing disease or illness such as strokes, rheumatoid arthritis or unstable joints so treatment that may affect these issues can be avoided or modified.
What is an Adjustment?
An adjustment is a light to moderate force by hand or with an instrument into spinal joint that needs it. And while most people think of an adjustment of the spine, they are equally effective in other areas of the body such as ankles, wrists and elbows.
Why don’t you take Insurance?
As insurance deductibles and copayments continue to climb, at Express Chiropractic Schertz we have eliminated the need for using insurance by setting our prices below that of most copayments.
