Here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions at Remington Chiropractic.
Who can benefit from chiropractic?
Most of our patients initially seek chiropractic care for a new pain or injury. They prefer a non-drug approach and want to actively participate in their care. Many patients continue their care when they are feeling fine. In fact, periodic chiropractic treatment can help to prevent injuries and improve physical performance, helping you to maintain your active lifestyle.
Chiropractic treatment is safe and effective for individuals at all stages of life, from children to seniors. Women find chiropractic treatment to be helpful in alleviating the discomforts of pregnancy. And athletes use chiropractic care to help them recover from injuries and keep them at the top of their game.

What conditions can chiropractic help?
Chiropractic treats more than just your sore back! Dr. Wells treats nerve, bone, joint and muscular conditions throughout your entire body. We frequently see patients for back pain, sciatica, neck pain and headaches, but we also treat conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder impingement and plantar fasciitis.
Regular chiropractic visits can help keep you healthy and moving well.
Is chiropractic safe?
Yes! Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and comfortable, and Dr. Wells chooses techniques based on your individual needs. Chiropractic adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
Not all conditions are treatable by chiropractic. We always start with a thorough examination to diagnose the cause of your pain and to determine if chiropractic is appropriate for you.
Why should I see a chiropractor instead of just going to my medical doctor?
Chiropractors are trained to look at your body as a whole (holistic approach), with an emphasis on how all your parts work together to keep you healthy and strong. Additionally, Doctors of Chiropractic seek to find and treat the cause of your pain, rather than just masking the symptoms with drugs. Once resolved, we educate and empower our patients to be proactive about their health, helping them to remain healthy, active and pain-free.
Your chiropractor can be your primary care provider. Doctors of Chiropractic have extensive education in diagnosis. At Remington Chiropractic we can and do refer you to your medical doctor when we feel they are better equipped to treat your condition.
How does chiropractic work? Is it scientific?
Yes, chiropractic has been proven effective by research and clinical experience! When your tendons, ligaments or muscles are injured, your nerves send and receive flawed messages. This results in pain, weakness and instability. Research shows that the chiropractic adjustment works like restarting a computer, allowing your nerves to send and receive messages correctly again. Once proper communication is restored your body can move freely and painlessly once again.
Do you take my insurance?
We accept Medicare and several different PPO insurances. Please give our office a call to check about your specific insurance.
