Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
Yes, we accept all insurance. We are in-network with most Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO’s and Medicare.
Do chiropractors only work on the spine?
Many chiropractors only work on the spine, however, the chiropractors at Gelband Natural Health have advanced training. This training allows them to treat far more than just the spine. Read more about the advanced training our chiropractors have received, Meet the Team.
How is your approach different?
All of our chiropractors perform standard chiropractic, but each of our three chiropractors also have specialties:
Dr. Richard specializes in Applied Kinesiology and Energy Medicine
Dr. Jeff specializes in digestive issues, thyroid disorders, and nutritional interventions
Dr. Jennifer specializes in Acupuncture, Cosmetic Acupuncture, and Rehabilitation

Why shouldn't I just get a drug or have surgery?
We believe in a drug-free, surgery-free approach whenever possible and medically appropriate. At Gelband Natural Health, we offer a conservative approach to most problems and get great results. We refer patients for a “higher-order” interventions when necessary. Conservative care focuses on optimizing function, while drugs and surgery tend to inhibit function. If strengthening a muscle doesn’t work to relieve back pain, there are more options. If surgery is the first approach and doesn’t work, the surgery can’t be undone. This is why we believe in starting with the most conservative interventions first.
How long will it take to solve my problem?
Treatment plans can vary greatly depending on the problem, but a typical treatment plan is four weeks in length. If more care is expected to be required, it will be discussed during the explanation of your treatment plan.
I went to a chiropractor that had me pay for my visits up front, do you do that?
No. We do not enroll patients in care contracts. We do not have patients pay in advance for treatment.
Do you provide discounts?
Yes! Laws concerning discounting of healthcare services are very strict and we cannot legally discount anything billed to insurance. However, for patients that do not have insurance, do not wish to utilize it, or do not have coverage for our services, we are able to provide a discount for all ChiroHealthUSA members. ChiroHealthUSA members receive a 20% on almost all services in our office. Call or e-mail us to learn more.
Alright I’m in! What is it going to cost?
