Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

We always start with a free consultation because we want to make sure you are in the right place first. If we proceed to an exam, we will discuss any and all recommendations and their fees on your second visit prior to initiating any formal treatment. Since treatment plans are all individualized, we always cover the most affordable options for care during this second visit.

Do you take my insurance?

We are contracted with several insurance providers in New Mexico. Since contracts vary and coverage, copay's, and deductibles are all specific to individual plans, please call us and we can help you find out what you need to know.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Maybe. If we think we can help and we perform an examination to find out how to best help you, Dr. Robinson will make a decision to adjust or not adjust Day 1 based on each individual case. Sometimes knowing when not to adjust a patient is just as important than knowing when to adjust.

Does the doctor have to take x-rays?

Yes. Dr. Robinson's specific training in Chiropractic BioPhysics is best implemented when the proper x-rays are taken from the beginning. Often, these x-rays are taken differently than what is taken at a medical facility. Also, our new digital x-ray equipment allows for an extremely small dose of radiation with huge diagnostic benefit. Not knowing what the spine looks like prior to engaging in chiropractic adjustments may present a challenge to getting the patient the best results.

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

Experience teaches us that the joints that need to be adjusted the most are often the ones that have inflammation and are already sore. This can be challenging because adjusting a sore joint is often perceived as painful when, in reality, the joint was already struggling. The great news is, however, that as an inflammed joint gets adjusted, improves it's motion, and improves it's alignment, inflammation decreases and, over time, so does the pain.

Why is the adjustment area open to other patients?

Because our focus is on each and individual patient, we block out up to one hour of our time for each new patient. We meet in private and may, if necessary, discuss health concerns that are sensitive. If we feel we can help you and a you start care with us, you become part of our family and the open area for adjusting can be part of your healing. We are a community of individuals striving for greater wellness and we have the best patients who are supportive of one another. As always, if you have any concerns with any part of our processes please let us know during your consult.
