Frequently asked questions
What happens if I do not use my visits in the allotted time period?
Visits do not roll over, are non-transferable and do not accumulate. If you do not use your visits, they will be voided as of your next draft date.
Please understand that these memberships are not an insurance policy.
Is there any short or long term commitment if I join a plan?
For all of our membership plans, we do require a 3-month commitment. Why do we require this? Some people only go the chiropractic when they are in pain and they never fully reap the benefits of long term care.
You can't get braces and expect the final results in 2-3 days. Please do not appoach chiropractic care as you can get the best results in 2-3 days. While you may be symptom-free in 2-3 days, try to focus on long term goals that last and not temporary things to ease the symptom.
What is the cancellation policy for the memberships?
After your 3 consecutive month commitment is fullfilled, you can cancel your plan.
If you chose the draft date of the 1st of the month, you will need to cancel prior to the 15th of the month.
If you chose the draft date of the 15th of the month, you will need to cancel prior to the 1st of the month.
The cancellation form is located under our member tab on our website. This form is the only method of cancellation and must be completed in order to stop your draft.
If you choose to cancel your plan and decide to join again at a later date, you will be required to start a 3 consecutive month commitment again.
Why do you allow members to receive up to 4 wellness analysis/adjustments per month?
There has been research stating that a wellness spinal check up every 7-14 days can help prevent accelerated degenerative changes. This is why we promote regular wellness check ups and adjustments, if needed, one per week.
You don't just brush your teeth when they hurt, nor should you just use chiropractic care when you are in pain. Spinal hygiene is just as important as dental hygiene. If our spines were visible, would you take care of yours better?
What if I need more than 4 wellness adjustments per month?
Additional visits for our monthly members are $10 per visit until the next draft date.
What is included in my monthly membership?
Your monthly membership will give you access to up to 4 visits per month.
What do these visits include? These visits include a wellness evaluation of your spine, spinal adjustments at the levels that have subluxations and general wellness coaching.
How can my whole family enjoy wellness chiropractic care?
We made our plans affordable so your entire family can enjoy wellness chiropractic care.
What is 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!
I'm a healthy person, why do I need wellness chiropractic care?
As a society, we tend to only look at superficial things unless we start developing symptoms that effect our daily liviing.
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?
In a study done by the Chief of Cancer prevention research at the NY Preventative Medicine Institute, they 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
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 active Medicare or any type of 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, pay per visits or visit package that you may purchase.
I do not want to have an auto-draft. What options do I have?
If you do not want to have an auto-draft you have two options.
OPTION 1: Pay per visit for $39 per visit
OPTION 2: Purchase a VISIT PACKAGE (visit package available with discounts off of our pay per visit price that expire 12 months after purchase date)
Do you take insurance?
We do not accept any insurance, nor do we file any insurance or provide you with any superbills to file for insurance. Insurance companies do not pay for wellness chiropractic care.
Instead of basing your care off of how many visits you are allowed by your insurance and what your co-pays/co-insurance are, we would rather have YOU be able to choose the care that you deserve.
By cutting out the cost of filing insurance, we have passed on those savings to you and also saved you precious time and stress of dealing with insurance companies.
How old do you have to be to start seeing a chiropractor?
Every infant should get a spinal check up as close to birth as possible.
Why? There are not many experiences that are as traumatic as childbirth, whether it be naturally or a c-section. Pulling, tugging and twisting of the infant's neck and body during childbirth can take an extreme toll on the future spinal health of your child.
If you are reading this, you are probably past that stage in your life, so now is a great time to start!
Who can receive wellness chiropractic care?
Everyone who has a spine can potentially receive wellness chiropractic care! If you are suffering with acute conditions, this may disqualify you from wellness chiropracic care until you get the acute condition under control.
I am pregnant, can I still receive wellness chiropractic adjustments?
Absolutely and it is highly recommended for those families who are trying to stay healthy during their expecting times.
While the techiniques change for adjusting pregnant women as they progress, it is always best to keep your spine and pelvis aligned before, during and post-pregnancy.
