Goshen Family Chiropractic Frequently Asked Questions
Here at Goshen Family Chiropractic, we specialize in treating a wide variety of conditions that affect both the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Many of the most common conditions we treat have to do with acute and chronic pain, including neck pain, back pain, and joint pain. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
We also commonly treat many other types of conditions, including plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff syndrome, prenatal lower back pain, arthritis, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal disc problems, whiplash, asthma, allergies, and more.
We provide a full range of chiropractic care services that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of our patients. First and foremost, we specialize in using a combination of spinal adjustments, spinal traction, and corrective care exercises to treat patients suffering from acute and chronic pain caused by spinal misalignments and vertebral subluxations.
Our other services include using the Webster Technique to reduce pain and establish pelvic balance in pregnant women, employing physiotherapy and soft tissue modalities to help patients recover from personal injury, and providing scoliosis screenings to help patients with scoliosis.
We also recognize the importance of nutrition and wellness to a patient’s overall health and provide custom nutrition and wellness plans that help patients live their lives to the fullest.
It is important to remember that every health insurance plan is different, and you will not know whether or not your insurance covers chiropractic care until you contact your insurance provider or read through the specifics of your plan yourself.
However, in general, most health insurance plans cover chiropractic care, although to varying extents, with many plans having visit or dollar limits and some even requiring a referral from your primary care physician.
If you are seeking chiropractic care for the first time, it is always best to contact your insurance provider to discuss the specifics of your coverage.
Professional chiropractors are primary care physicians themselves and can diagnose and treat conditions without the need for a referral. However, while you do not need to get a referral from your primary care physician before making an appointment, it is not uncommon for health insurance plans to require a referral in order to meet the requirements for coverage.
Because of this, it is always a good idea to contact your health insurance provider before making an appointment to confirm whether or not you need one.
Chiropractic adjustment, also commonly referred to as spinal adjustment and spinal manipulation, involves the application of force to the spinal column with the goal of improving mobility, reducing spinal nerve stress, and providing pain relief. These adjustments are safe and often pain-free and can be used to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions without the use of further medication.

Here at Goshen Family Chiropractic, we treat patients of all ages suffering from a wide variety of different conditions. From patients suffering from chronic pain and recovering from traumatic injuries to more specific situations like pregnant women dealing with lower back pain and patients who simply want to live healthier lives through preventative care, nutrition, and wellness, we are proud to be able to help such a wide range of patients live the healthy and pain-free lives they deserve.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating conditions in patients of all ages, from young children all the way through to the final years of adulthood. Children, in particular, are usually much more physically active than most adults and are frequently subject to falling and hurting themselves while out playing with friends.
Whether dealing with sports injuries or simple playground wear and tear, chiropractic care is not only safe for children but can help them recover from injuries better and faster, promoting healthy growth and longevity.
While there is substantial overlap between the types of conditions and patients that both chiropractors and physical therapists treat, chiropractic care and physical therapy are not the same thing.
While the main focus of physical therapy is to help patients regain mobility through a combination of specialized exercises, physical manipulation, and other therapies, chiropractors specialize in treating issues associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
In general, chiropractors emphasize the use of spinal manipulation and alignment to treat pain and can suggest particular massages and nutritional and lifestyle changes to promote health, while physical therapists are more concerned with recovery from injury.
