In most cases, a referral is not required to see a chiropractor. However, we recommend checking with your insurance provider as some plans may require a referral for coverage.

A typical chiropractic session at our clinic takes about 15-20 minutes, depending on the specific treatments involved and your particular health needs.  Exams and more complex cases can take up to an hour.

While some discomfort may be experienced during the adjustment or treatment, our chiropractors strive to minimize discomfort and will ensure you remain within a safe and comfortable range of motion throughout your session.

The number of chiropractic sessions required can vary widely depending on your condition’s severity and how you respond to treatment. We will discuss your expected course of treatment after your initial assessment.

Most insurance plans cover chiropractic services, but coverage details can vary. We advise you to check with your insurance provider to understand what is covered under your plan and any potential out-of-pocket costs.

Dr. Matthew squeezed me in on short notice and took very good care of me. He was very thorough and didn’t just adjust me and let me walk out. Amazing experience here and the receptionist is a sweetheart.

Dr. Matt and the entire staff have been GREAT! I went in for some issues I was having with my neck and back and Dr. Matt also helped me with some other issues I was having with my calf and shoulders that have made a HUGE improvement in my overall health and comfort.

I highly recommend using Dr. Matt!

I really love it here! They are very friendly and I feel Dr. Wilson is giving me great treatment! I also don’t feel pressured into coming back too frequently. The adjustments are great! Great office!

Dr. Wilson and Dr, Alec (PT) are both top-notch, and I’ve trusted my whole family with Dr. Matt Wilson for the last couple of years. My father was a chiropractor for over 40 years, so I knew what I was looking for, and he’s the best we’ve found in the area.  Their approach is to get you feeling better, and not to string things out, costing you more time and money than necessary. While they have all the equipment necessary (x-ray, etc) they don’t push unneeded services or snake oils. Both are caring, competent, and compassionate. The staff is good about finding appointments when you need them, and scheduling you with multiple people in a visit whenever possible. The new building is clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Wait times are short, too. My husband has also had a therapy-based deep tissue massage from one of the two new massage therapists, and said it really helped!
