Our Approach & The Intero difference
At Intero Chiropractic, we are not your traditional chiropractic office. We take a scientific approach to determine what is going on both neurologically and structurally.
Your brain controls the entire body by sending messages down the spinal cord and out the nerves to every single organ, tissue, and cell in the body. The bones that are supposed to protect your nerves can shift out of place putting pressure on those nerves which leads to those aches, pains and dysfunction you may be feeling.
Our diagnostics allow us to identify those specific nerve interferences and structural misalignments so we can make the necessary corrections to help you return to optimal health.

FULL-SPINE DIGITAL X-RAYS
We will sit down with you to discuss what symptoms you’re currently experiencing, review your history so we may better understand what has led you to your current health status, and determine your goals for the future.
We will use Space Certified-NASA Published thermographic technology to get an exact assessment of your problem areas and nerve interference that you may have.
We will use this exam to assess your movement, muscle strength, and overall spine health. We are able to determine where structural shifts and subluxations may have occurred.
We use the latest, state-of-the art, fully digital x-ray technology when necessary. Being a structural chiropractic office, we believe in analyzing the full structure of the body, and are one of the few locations in the state that have the capacity to take full-spine digital x-rays. These specific x-rays will help our doctors get an exact assessment of your spine and its problem areas.

A: No. While most patients see significant results with pain quickly, the process of correcting the underlying root cause typically takes time.
Q: Are there any risk in injury if I proceed with the treatment plan?
A: The Gonstead methodology is extremely safe and effective. It is a non-invasive treatment that corrects the core cause of many issues.
Q: Do you take insurance?
A: We currently only take Medicare and Personal Injury/Auto Accident cases. Although we would love to get reimbursed for our services, most major medical insurance companies only reimburse for traditional chiropractic services, and do not reimburse for most of the things that we do above. However, we can give you a receipt/superbill to submit to your insurance for out of network benefits.
Q: Can you give me an adjustment on my first visit?
A: Our best care is after we thoroughly complete our 45-60 minute analysis of your 30+ point exam, full spine x-rays, thermography, etc. (see above), which is typically performed in the evening (yes, we stay late!). In certain acute scenarios, we can definitely perform an abbreviated analysis, but this is not preferred.
