At Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we provide chiropractic services to patients throughout Pleasanton, CA. If this is your first time using our services, it’s natural to have some questions. Here are answers to our frequently asked questions:

What conditions can you treat?

Some of the common conditions we treat include back pain, headaches, anxiety, and neck pain. As professionally-trained chiropractors, we’re also able to address conditions such as insomnia, stress, and chronic fatigue. Our chiropractic services are open to patients of all ages. Before we provide treatment, though, you’ll need to attend an initial consultation.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is often used as a natural alternative or as a complement to modern medicine. We take a minimally invasive approach to each of our patients, using peer-reviewed evidence to inform our decisions and treatment plans.

To ensure your chiropractic care is safe from start to finish, we always begin with an initial consultation. During this consultation, we’ll find out more about your medical history, current conditions, and other treatment plans you’re following. In a very small number of cases, we may find that our usual treatment plans aren’t right for you. Wherever possible, we try to modify our approach so patients throughout Pleasanton, CA can use our services.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic care focuses on techniques such as manipulation of the spine to tackle conditions that affect various areas of the body. Your Doctor of Chiropractic will perform an examination that helps them decide which techniques to use. The approach they take can include gentle manipulation using their hands or interventions that require tools.

In some cases, you may benefit from an acute care plan. This will involve attending an appointment once with the aim of finding immediate relief. If you come to see us to treat a longstanding injury or a chronic condition, you may require several visits. In some cases, we will also recommend actions you can take at home to support your healing.
 

What qualifications do your Pleasanton, CA chiropractors have?

Dr. Jim Good has trained as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DO). His training involved diagnosing and treating conditions that relate to the musculoskeletal system and misalignment of the spine. A chiropractic degree involves between four and five years of intensive training, including a strong grounding in anatomy and physiology. When you visit Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.

Can I pay for chiropractic care with my insurance plan?

Yes, chiropractic care is covered by many insurance plans. However, we always advise our patients to contact their insurance company first to find out exactly what is covered in their policy.

Can my child see a chiropractor?

Chiropractic care is safe for children. For health concerns such as chronic pain, irritability, sleep trouble, digestive issues, and poor immune health, spinal adjustments can be a safe, effective treatment.
