Choose from Three Options
- $45 for a chiropractic exam, two adjustments, and two cold-laser therapy sessions ($345 value)
- $59 for a chiropractic exam, two adjustments, two cold-laser therapy sessions, and one extremity treatment ($405 value)
- $200 for a family package that includes exam and adjustments for parents and kids, plus cold-laser therapy and extremity treatments for parents ($1,230 value). This option is valid for two parents and up to three kids under age 18.
Exams test neurological, postural, and physical traits to inform spinal adjustments. Cold-laser treatments use low-intensity laser light to stimulate cells and reduce inflammation and pain. The extremity treatment uses heparin or low-molecular-weight heparin followed by warfarin to treat extremity deep-vein thrombosis.
Spinal Adjustment: A Simple Fix for the Complex Spine
Chiropractors work largely by making adjustments to the spinal column. Learn why this can offer relief with Groupon's look at this treatment technique.
To anyone who’s ever had to stare down a wall of heating pads, braces, pain relievers, balms, and ointments at the drugstore, it should come as no surprise that roughly 80% of the population experiences back pain at some point. And it’s easy to understand why: the vertebral column comprises dozens of bones (more than 15% of all bones in an adult body), all of which work in concert to protect the thick bundle of nerves running the length of the spine. During spinal manipulation, chiropractors perform a series of swift motions that realign all those intricate moving parts—usually with their hands but sometimes with a small device to help wrangle bones and soft tissue.
The spine’s organizational complexity calls into question the idea that someone can simply crack your back and fix it, but a wide range of studies have shown that over time there can be spinal benefits to having a trained professional make minor physical adjustments. Some studies have found that spinal manipulation can alleviate lower-back pain as effectively as pain-relief medications and other conventional treatments. The therapy also doesn’t carry some of the side effects of daily medication, and a chiropractor, osteopath, or physical therapist can customize treatments to target specific regions of tension and soreness.
