Many chiropractors will tell you that they, too, were once apprehensive first time patients, and Dr. Nick is no exception.

It’s always nice to know what to expect ahead of time.

Dr. Nick always explains everything that’s taking place and will answer any questions you may have right away.

In this spirit, we have created this New Patient Center so you will know exactly what to expect when you visit Back ‘n Place Chiropractic.

Your First Visit

At Back ‘n Place Chiropractic, Dr. Nick introduces you to the practice with an initial visit of about 45-60 minutes.

Paperwork. We’ve streamlined our new patient paperwork to gather only the information we need to assess your medical history and determine the best course of care for your current concerns.

Insurance. We also collect any information we might need to facilitate billing to your insurance company. We accept many different insurance plans and currently work in-network with United, BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, and Humana.

Exam and X-rays. Next we’ll do a full chiropractic exam and take X-rays (if necessary).

Treatment. Your treatment will usually begin with electric muscle stimulation (a type of massage), to relax your muscles in preparation for your adjustment. Your visits might differ from time to time, depending on any additional therapies you receive as your care is completely individualized. Future visits typically require 20-25 minutes.


Our Adjusting Techniques

Dr. Nick uses a variety of chiropractic methods to provide you with the individualized care you deserve. Some of the more common techniques for full spinal and extremity adjustments include:

All of our methods are gentle for your relief. Occasionally, you might feel some soreness after a chiropractic treatment, as adjustments relieve pressure and waking muscles that may not have been used properly in some time. The soreness is much like what you feel after your first trip to the gym after some time away, and should subside fairly quickly.

Dr. Nick will walk you through your care, every step of the way, answering any questions you might have. We want your visit to be free of anxiety and leave you feeling a sense of relief.

  • United Healthcare
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Aetna
  • Humana
