We are please to offer chiropractic care in addition to our physical therapy treatments at Align Physical Therapy. Dr. Amanda Star is a chiropractor, yoga instructor and clinical pilates instructor at Align.
Amanda finds that a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation, strength and performance yields the best results. For this reason, Amanda incorporates elements of chiropractic care, yoga, Pilates and resistance training into a holistic program that trains the body and the brain. Amanda does more than just adjust joints so that your treatment has better outcomes and increased pain relief.
WHAT KIND OF CONDITIONS CAN AMANDA HELP ME WITH?
Chiropractors are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat all non-surgical and post-surgical musculoskeletal complaints. Common complaints include low back pain, stiffness in your neck, shoulder issues with overhead motion, knee pain while running or after a workout, a ‘pinching’ feeling in your hip, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, etc. – the list goes on.
DO I HAVE TO GET ADJUSTMENTS? ARE THEY SAFE?
If you want an adjustment, a chiropractor is the best person for the job and spends years mastering the technique. However, Amanda only adjusts when she thinks it is medically helpful. There are a number of other ways to mobilize a joint, so whether or not you have an adjustment is entirely up to you. Like all medical procedures, there is always risk involved. However, adverse events are extremely rare and this low force, high speed technique is safe and effective.
WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?
Many private healthcare plans have coverage for chiropractic care. Amanda does not bill directly to insurance at this time, but she will give you a superbill that you can submit for reimbursement at no additional charge.
