How do I get started?

Do we take insurance?
We would rather have YOU be able to choose the care that you deserve instead of having someone who has never met you tell you what is best for you. We also don’t need an insurance staff, which means we can pass on the savings to all of you! Wouldn’t you like more money in your pocket while getting the same quality wellness Chiropractic care? Yes… we thought so!
What membership options do I have to choose from?

What is the Advanced Subluxation Care Pack?
The Advanced Subluxation Care Pack is purchased by those of us that need more care. This pack will allow the doctors of The Back Shak to give great care even if you are in the later stages of degeneration.
Do I have to set up an auto draft if I pick a monthly option?
In order to fully utilize our plans and great prices, an auto draft from a credit card is required unless you choose the option of Pay Per Visit. If you enroll in our Individual, Dual or Family Monthly Membership, it is required that you set up an auto draft. This is to help us keep our overhead low, so we can pass the savings on to you!
If I don’t want a monthly draft what options do I have as a member?
If you wish not to have a monthly draft from a credit card, the one option you have at The Back Shak is the Pay Per Visit option. You will pay $29.00 per visit no matter when you come in. This is still a great option for anyone who still wants to enjoy Wellness Chiropractic care!
Is there any short or long term commitment if I join a plan?
Great question! When developing The Back Shak, we wanted a clinic that kept true to our philosophy. So, NO! There is NO short or long term commitment to stay on a plan.
If you decide to cancel your monthly membership, all we require for you to fill out the cancellation form HERE. All cancellation emails must be received 5 days PRIOR to your draft date. If it is received less than 5 days prior to your draft date, then your draft will go through for that month but will be cancelled after that.
We think that you should have the freedom to choose whether or not you wish to use Chiropractic care to your advantage. Even just after a short period of Chiropractic care you will start to see the benefits of what we do!
Can I add a family member to my membership?
Yes, we have multiple membership options! Click here to check out your membership options. Please know that only immediate family members can be included in your membership. Immediate family members are spouses, children until the age of 18 and children that are in college that are still dependent. We may require proof of dependent children over 18 (a college email address, for example).
What’s the difference between pain Chiropractic care and Wellness Chiropractic care?
Many people only think of going to the Chiropractor when they are in pain. Chiropractic helps by locating and reducing vertebral subluxations which allows your body to function better by decreasing interference to your nerves. Reduction or removal of the vertebral subluxation can alleviate the symptoms of pain but Chiropractic does so much more. Long term Wellness Chiropractic care can benefit you in ways you may not be aware of. A study done by Tapio Videman, tells us that a Subluxation (a joint not in a neutral position which causes disc, muscles, bone and nerve damage) when formed, within 7 days microscopic dengenerative changes will begin and this WILL cause an inescapable PERMANENT DEGENERATIVE progression if it allowed to remain for any longer than 2 WEEKS! This is why we suggest you get weekly spinal check ups! If you want to help prevent advantanced degenerative changes, then join as a member and start seeing the benefits of Wellness Chiropractic today!
What restrictions are there for New Patients?
In order to be seen at The Back Shak, you must be seeking wellness Chiropractic care. This means if you are seeking care as a result of any type of accident, worker's compensation, filing for disability, or you are wanting to use your insurance, then YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THE TYPE OF CARE THAT WE PROVIDE. We would be glad to suggest a provider that would be able to meet your needs. The Back Shak is does not accept Medicare or Medicaid. The Back Shak is also not considered health insurance. Also, if you choose to use your HSA or MSA to pay for your monthly membership, it is your responsibility as a patient to understand what they will pay for. We will be glad to email over any receipts for your monthly membership.
If you are a couple or a family, please enjoy your Initial Visits for $79.00 for the first person and then $19.00 for additional family members (our Initial Visits are priced at $79.00/visit so this is a savings of $60.00 per person). Please know that only immediate family members can be given the discount. Immediate family members include but are not limited to spouses, children until the age of 18 and children that are in college that are still dependent (must be under the age of 25). We may require proof of dependent children over 18 (a college email address, for example).
I'm a healthy person, why should I utilize Wellness Chiropractic care?
That's a great question! According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapy, patients whose primary physician was a Chiropractor experienced:
85% less in pharmceutical costs
62% fewer outpatient surgeries
60% fewer hospital admissions
59% fewer days in the hospital
Still not convinced that you could benefit from Wellness Chiropractic care? Well everyone wants to have a better immune system right?
In a study done by the Chief of Cancer prevention research at the NY Preventative Medicine Institute concluded:
Patients that received long-term Wellness Chiropractic care had a:
400% stronger immune system than people with cancer or other serious diseases
200% stronger immune system than people not under Chiropractic care
