What is a Larchmont Chiropractor?
These are doctors who studied to practice an approach to health care that is hands-on and drug-free. The care that they will provide will include:
- Patient exam
- Diagnosis of problem
- Treatment plan
Along with the above-mentioned care, they can also provide you with-
- Therapeutic exercises
- Rehabilitee exercises
- Nutritional counseling
- Dietary counseling
- Lifestyle counseling
Your chosen DC (doctor of chiropractic) will assess your current conditions and symptoms will the following:
- Clinical exam
- Lab testing
- Diagnostic image (X-rays)
- Other diagnostic interventions
With the use of these tests, they will be able to determine if they can provide appropriate treatment or not. If they cannot help you with your current conditions, they will refer you to a healthcare provider that is most appropriate for your situation. Sometimes, they may choose to offer you care in conjunction with care from another healthcare provider.
If you are suffering from back pain (lower), the care that you receive from your DC may be your primary treatment. However, if you are suffering from other medical conditions, the services that you receive from them may support other treatment that you are currently receiving.
Your Larchmont chiropractor is a doctor and has to abide by the laws of the state licensing board. They have successfully passed their national board exam and they must take continuing education credits yearly in order to maintain their license.
When you start to receive your treatment from a DC, you will most likely undergo spinal manipulation. This is a therapeutic procedure that is performed and the purpose behind it is to restore mobility to the joints with manual controlled pressure. This manipulation will only work if the tissue has been injured and is restricted with its movements.
Injury to the tissue can be caused by-
- Traumatic event-improper lifting
- Repetitive stress-sitting with poor posture
The tissue that becomes injured will go through both chemical and physical changes that may lead to the following:
- Diminished function
The manipulation that can be provided by your doctor can adjust the tissue and joint that has been affected and restores mobility to that area. This will alleviate pain and the tightness in the muscle which can allow the tissue to heal.
The adjustment that you will receive should not cause you any type of discomfort. You may notice some soreness or ache that is mild right after treatment. This discomfort will be similar to how you feel after a hard workout. This discomfort will go away within 12 to 24 hours.
Choosing chiropractic care is a safe and effective option compared to pain medications that you will purchase over the counter or with a script from your doctor.
Cost of Treatment with Larchmont Chiropractor
You may be concerned about the cost for chiropractic care. On average, costs of this care can range from $65 up to $125. It will depend on the severity of the manipulation or other treatment that has been performed. Sometimes, the costs can be higher or lower.
For your first visit, the costs will vary and will depend on the diagnostic testing that is needed along with your examination. This visit is important and will allow the doctor to know which type of treatment is best for your condition. They need to be able to find the safest approach to fixing your symptoms without furthering harm to your body.
Follow-up visits will be less in cost compared to your first. During your treatment, you may need follow-up diagnostic testing in which case, you may be expected to pay a higher cost but your doctor will be able to speak with your about that first.
You can save money for care with the following options:
- Health insurance plans that include coverage for chiropractic care
- Tax deductions are available for this care
- Paying for treatment with cash in full may offer substantial savings

Traditional Medical Care versus Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care has become popular over the past few years. This popularity has a lot to do with the differences found between it and traditional health care such as:
- Surgical rates
- Diagnostic imaging
- Level of satisfaction in patients
Costs are lower for the patients that choose chiropractic care over traditional medicine due to the costs of prescription drugs and medical equipment that may be advised. By choosing care from a DC, you can save money by avoiding surgeries, the use of medical equipment, and the costs of scripts at the pharmacy.
By choosing care from your local DC, you can save money and feel better in the long run without the use of medications.
