FAQs - Keough Chiropractic

Chiropractic is totally drug-free, surgery-free path to healing the body naturally. Chiropractors focus on the relationship between the body's structure and its functioning. We identify subluxations in the spine that are interfering with proper nervous system communication to the body. We perform gentle chiropractic adjustments to the spine and other parts of the body with the goal of balancing the nervous system, correcting alignment issues, alleviating pain, improving function, and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care aims to address the whole body, enhancing patients’ ability to think, move and perform.

Chiropractic can naturally benefit and improve problems such as: Back pain, headaches, bowel irregularity, mental clarity, ear infections, neck pain, arthritis and joint pain, scoliosis, asthma, blood pressure, healthier pregnancy, organ function and surgery prevention

Please bring a valid form of ID (drivers license) and your insurance card if you have one. Addionally, bring your completed new patient paperwork (if not submitted via our website) as well as any copies of xrays, MRI's or blood work completed in the past 6 months

Though there is no required dress code for coming in to see us but it's always better to wear comfortable clothes, so to avoid unnecessary discomfort for you during your physical examination. We advise avoiding any clothing that might interfere with our doctors being able to do a proper physical examination.

Your treatment plan will be determined after an in depth history, physical examination and X-rays are taken and analyzed (if needed) ). Not all patients entering our office will require chiropractic and therefore will be referred to the appropriate health care provider. However, if chiropractic is recommended because there is no two patients alike, all patients are treated as individuals and will receive their own active chiropractic treatment plan that may vary from 3-4 weeks to 3-4 months depending on the severity of the case.

 You don’t need a referral to begin chiropractic care. Our knowledgeable staff can field most questions over the telephone. If you want to explore a concern more privately, just ask. Contact Keough Chiropractic today!

Functional Medicine seeks to identify and address the root cause of disease and views the body as one integrated system not a collection of independent organs divided up. It treats your whole system and not just your symptoms.

Infants and Children need to be adjusted just like adults. The public sees chiropractors as back doctors mainly but chiropractic care encompasses much more. A chiropractor is trained to find and correct misalignments in the spine called subluxations. Subluxations cause interference to the nervous system which causes miscommunication from the nervous system to the rest of the cells of the body. Dysfunction in the spine can have a wide range of effects on a person’s health. The first subluxation is most often caused by the position in the womb or the birthing process itself. Even the most natural pregnancies and births can cause physical stress on the infant's spine and nervous system, not to mention a birth with interventions like forceps, vacuum extraction or cesarean section. The purpose of chiropractic is to find and reduce stress and interference to the nervous system, allowing the person (infant or child) to experience greater function and an overall improved quality of life. Our doctors have treated many infants and children for conditions with great success; colic, ear infections, plagiocephaly, birth trauma, asthma, breastfeeding and latch difficulties, immune system dysfunction, acid reflux, constipation, bed wetting, torticollis, stuttering, seizures, scoliosis.

We offer a unique program called Shape Reclaimed. Shape Reclaimed is not a weight loss program but a way to transform your current state of health. We take the time to educate our patients on why there is a health care crisis in our country today and how to take the necessary steps to reclaim their health and heal the body. Patients doing this program are closely monitored by our doctors with blood testing and urine testing to ensure they get the most out of this program.

Being overweight or obese has a direct and devastating effect on our health. Our goal for our patients is to help them achieve the highest state of health possible. When this goal is achieved, patients will hold their chiropractic adjustments longer, they will have improved immune function, improved digestion of nutrients, less inflammation/pain and overall drastically decrease the chances of developing dis-ease in the body.
