Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions? We can help.

Please take some time to read our frequently asked questions (FAQ) below, and if there are any additional questions, please feel free to call our office for clarification.

Do you do adjustments?

No, we do not adjust. Our unique niche involves spinal decompression therapy in combination with deep tissue laser therapy. This combination has worked very well for patients suffering with severe and chronic pain.

I woke up with a kink in my neck. Can you help?

We can only help if your neck pain is chronic and severe, and has lasted weeks or months. We deal with severe and chronic cases only and therefore we utilize decompression therapy and laser therapy aimed at resolving much more serious spinal issues. Our treatment plans span weeks or months to get results.

Can you just do 1 session? I think that’s all I need.

No. Our protocol is designed to provide long-term success, and must be performed over the course of several weeks or months to yield the results our patients expect. If you are in pain and need a quick adjustment before getting on a plane or heading out to the golf course, please contact a local chiropractor who is an expert in back and neck adjustments only.

I’ve been told I need surgery. Can you help?

Absolutely. We have helped hundreds of patients just like you avoid back surgery. While you may have been told that your herniated disc, bulging disc, slipped disc, ruptured disc, or prolapsed disc can only be corrected with surgery, we disagree. Our powerful, painless, therapeutic, non-invasive, and advanced decompression therapy combined with laser therapy has helped hundreds of patients experience tremendous pain relief through correcting the compressed disc without ever having to go under the knife.

Do you accept health insurance?

No, we do not accept insurance. Unfortunately, our services are not covered by most insurance companies, so we are no longer taking health insurance as form of payment.

What kind of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, checks, and credit card payments. Please note that payments are due at the time of service.

What does the $47 offer include?

This offer is for new patients only. As a new patient, we will reach out and make an appointment for your first visit. The offer includes sitting down with Dr Mike Digrado for a full examination and a report of findings. Once done, we will provide you one session of spinal decompression therapy and one session of deep tissue laser pain relief therapy. Please make sure to have payment available as we do not accept insurance.

Is decompression therapy safe?

Yes, decompression therapy is absolutely safe. Decompression therapy is a very safe, proven, and FDA-cleared method of addressing spinal issues. It has worked with thousands of patients at our office, and millions of patients nationwide.

Is deep tissue laser therapy safe?

Yes, deep tissue laser therapy is absolutely safe. Such lasers have been around for years, and they are heavily regulated which means they are cleared for use as a medical treatment for a wide range of pain and discomforts. We take all the necessary precautions to ensure your treatment is handled in the safest and most effective manner.

How quickly can I expect results?

Some experience relief with their first session, while others may require several sessions to have noticeable results. No two bodies are exactly the same, so results vary from case to case. So much depends on the type of symptoms you’re experiencing, the amount of pain and discomfort you’re in, the condition of your spine, any previous treatments you’ve had, and so forth. As a patient, Dr Mike Digrado can assess your unique condition and be able to provide a better answer based on your exact condition.
