Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions that we receive at Ball Ground Upper Cervical Chiropractic:

Do you accept insurance?

No; our office is strictly a cash practice. However, we will provide you with a health insurance claim form that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Our relationship is with you, not your insurance company.

Do I have to keep coming in for a lifetime once I start chiropractic care?

No. This belief is a myth. Our goal is to provide you with excellent spinal correction with the least number of visits.


Everyone is different. Factors such as age, previous injury, work activities and general health all make a difference in how long you can “hold” your spinal correction. Many patients find that they can maintain their correction for six months to a year. We recommend a quarterly checkup to keep things in tune. Why? Because your body is a dynamic structure. However, that choice is entirely your decision.

The best surgeon isn’t the one who makes the most incisions. The same is true of chiropractors. We want you to get well quickly and efficiently, and help you stay that way with a minimum of visits.

Do I have to have my neck popped and cracked?

No. We use a state-of-the-art technique called chiropractic orthospinology. This approach requires no twisting of the neck, no popping and no cracking. Your neck will never be placed in an uncomfortable position.


Our techniques allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your time with the doctor.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic care is exceeding safe. Most chiropractic offices successfully treat everyone from babies to those in their golden years. Our treatments require no manipulation and rotation of the neck, so any type of adverse effect is next to impossible.
