What to expect?

As a patient, the Virginia Beach Chiropractor will tailor a care program targeted to their wellness needs using minimal invasive but highly efficient techniques. 

In Chiropractic care, if the patient arrives with pain at the wellness center relief care is given. The session can be 2 to 3 times a week for duration of 4 to 12 weeks depending on the severity of the medical condition. 

In the corrective phase, the tissues and muscles are allowed to completely heal, which needs a session of 4 to 8 times a month for duration of 6 to 12 months. 

After the body is completely healed there is a wellness care program, where the patients need to visit for periodic adjustments. It is a quick visit that needs a visit to the chiropractor a couple of times a month. 

The wellness center even accepts major insurances. Benefits and coverage differ based on policy type and provider’s network. The center even files insurance claims for worker’s compensation and automobile accidents with 100% coverage.
