Watch Our Video Below To Learn About Our Care Philosophy.

Welcome! We are your local family-friendly chiropractors, providing care to patients in Brighton, Howell, and all of Livingston County.

We Believe:

Health does not come from a prescription bottle. It comes from within. If you’re unwell now, it is not because you are naturally incapable of being well. Rather, your daily environment, habits, and life may be suppressing your natural health. For us, that natural health begins at the core, literally, with the spine. Spinal health is directly correlated with overall health. That’s why we practice chiropractic.

If you’re looking for natural ways to remove interference to your body’s own innate ability to be well, and you live near Brighton or Howell, Michigan, we’re the right place for you. Our concern includes but also goes beyond just your current painful condition. We want to address the underlying problem in a way that compliments your body’s natural healing process and also promotes lasting wellness.

Are you experiencing pain or discomfort from an injury or trauma? A good chiropractor can alleviate your pain and work to fix the core injury.

Even if you didn’t break any bones; even if you only slipped but didn’t fall, you can have soft tissue injuries that take weeks or months to heal, and often don’t heal properly. You can also misalign bones so that they don’t move like they should. This can cause pain, swelling and eventually lead to degenerative arthritis.

Do you have chronic pain from arthritis or other conditions? With regular care, a chiropractor could restore your ability to enjoy your daily life without constant pain.

Tissues that have healed wrong after an injury…even a minor one…can cause lingering pain and discomfort. This pain can keep you from doing the things you need and want to do. Joints that don’t move right can begin to degenerate, causing painful arthritis that further immobilizes you and prevents you from enjoying life.

Have you been prescribed medication after medication such as pain killers, muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatories which either didn’t help or didn’t last? (not to mention the side effects!)

A true chiropractor seeks to restore health naturally by enhancing the body’s natural ability to be well.

Most often, medical treatment of pain begins (and often ends), with some sort of drug intervention. Drugs don’t usually fix problems, however; they usually only mask symptoms and sometimes they don’t even do that very well. They are also very risky since they force your body’s own physiological processes to be artificially altered. Have you seen the fine print in magazine drug ads that lists all the possible side effects and interactions? Why do you think they’re so long and frightening?

Have you been given physical therapy or rehabilitation, braces or wraps, yet had little or no relief from your pain? A progressive chiropractor doesn’t just look at the immediate pain and injury. Here, we dig deeper to correct underlying issues that may be keeping your injury from properly healing.

Sometimes these treatments help, but often, until the underlying cause of your pain is corrected, physical therapies and modalities only help temporarily, if at all.

Are you frustrated?

Would you like to be able to do the things you love to do without pain?

Would you like to get back to living instead of having your life controlled by your painful condition?

What George Moses has to say about our office…

Frequently Asked Questions about Chiropractic Care

Our patients often ask us specifics about chiropractic care and their family’s health. In this FAQ article, we attempt to answer our most common questions. If you have other concerns, please contact us for a personal consultation.

I keep hearing about network chiropractic care. What is that?

We often are asked about network chiropractic care. It is a relatively new term in the field, and refers to a specific approach toward diagnosis, treatment and healing that leads to a significantly improved overall quality of life.

Network chiropractic care is based on the idea that the spine is the center of the nerve network that controls all our physiology, and that certain techniques help gently re-align the flow of energy throughout the entire network. We support and employ the concepts of network chiropractic care, and would be happy to talk about this in detail with you.

My child has ADHD. Can chiropractic care help children with this problem?

ADHD and chiropractic care in children is a growing field of study. Mounting research and direct experience tells us that indeed chiropractic care can help children with ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder). Chiropractic care has been shown to often lessen the symptoms of ADHD in children as well as, or even better than, medication alone.

What can I expect for average chiropractic costs?

Average chiropractic costs are hard to pin down, due to factors including your health insurance plan, the doctor you are visiting, and special needs you may have. According to a recent survey in Chiropractic Economics magazine, the average cost of a typical session in the US is $65 for a general adjustment. Fees are higher in the Southern US, and lowest in the Midwest (around $60). To get a better understanding of you own average chiropractic costs, check with your insurance provider to see how much chiropractic care they cover, then talk to us about our fee structure. You will be pleasantly surprised how affordable proper chiropractic care can be.

What is the average chiropractor cost with no insurance?

Many insurance plans do not cover complete chiropractic costs, and some may pay a portion of the fee with the patient responsible for a deductible. Since insurance plans vary so much, the average chiropractor cost with no insurance is hard to estimate. Talk to us for a plan that will work with your budget. While average chiropractor costs can vary quite a bit, we are an affordable alternative and will work to help create a plan that works for your exact situation.

What is the average cost or price of a chiropractor visit?

For a basic adjustment, that average cost or price of a chiropractor visit is generally between $50-70. Many insurance plans will cover all or a portion of the average cost of your chiropractic visit, so be sure to check with them. At Advantage Family Chiropractic, we can work with you to create a health and wellness plan that meets your budget.

What is the average price a chiropractor will charge me?

This often depends on location (the South has the highest rates, while the average price of a chiropractor is most affordable in the Midwest), and how much care you need. Some charge up to $200 for an initial consultation, and up to $75 for adjustment. At Advantage Family Chiropractic, we offer a new patient special of $39 for your initial visit, including any necessary x-rays.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care and massage?

Your spine is the housing for your body’s entire energy system. If it is out of alignment, your body simply does not function properly. The primary benefit of chiropractic care and massage is to realign the spine properly and gradually, so that the nervous system can function properly again. This can reduce back and neck pain and well as eliminate headaches, and will help your entire body function and feel better.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustment?

An adjustment is the term we use to refer to what happens during each visit. At your initial consultation, we gain a good understanding of where your spine needs re-alignment. During each adjustment, we do just that…gently adjust the spine back toward its healthy and optimal position. The benefits of chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustment include relief from pain and headaches, better posture, higher energy and improved overall body health.

Are there benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Absolutely, there are great benefits when you receive chiropractic care during pregnancy. Being pregnant puts huge stresses on your muscular-skeletal system, and many women experience backaches, hip pain and other complaints as the pregnancy progresses. The benefits of a chiropractic care during pregnancy include pain relief, better balance and movement, and stress relief, among others. Talk to your OB-GYN about the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy and then talk to us to see how we can help in your overall prenatal care plan.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for arthritis?

Many arthritis patients receive relief when chiropractic care is part of their overall health management plan. In fact, the benefits of chiropractic care for arthritis can be dramatic. One of the primary causes of arthritis is joints that do not move properly due to misalignment. Since the primary focus of chiropractic care is re-alignment for proper movement, chiropractic care can be a fantastic way to help treat and manage your arthritis.

My daughter’s coach recommended she see a chiropractor. Are there benefits of chiropractic care for athletes?

Yes, many athletes regularly work with chiropractors, not just to help treat injuries but to fine tune the body for optimal performance. Athletes often put great strain on their bodies, and the benefits of chiropractic care for athletes help them avoid serious injury, more quickly recover if injury does occur, and ensure they are working at their top form. Football players, hockey players and other high-impact athletes often see huge benefits from working with a chiropractor, as do tennis players, gymnasts, golfers and traditionally low-impact athletes.

Are there any benefits of chiropractic care for autism?

Recent research does indicate that there are benefits of chiropractic care for autism. Many psychologists have seen improvement in their autistic patients after spinal adjustments.

I have heard that young children often received adjustments. Are there benefits of chiropractic care for babies?

Absolutely! We care for entire families, from the oldest to the youngest members. There are many benefits of chiropractic care for babies, and we offer adjustments for the tiniest patients. In fact, many pediatricians recommend the benefits of chiropractic care for babies. Spinal alignment problems can develop during labor and delivery especially if there is any trauma to the baby or mother during the birth process. Traumatic birth syndrome is well-documented, and can create many subluxation issues in the newborn. All infants should be checked for these problems, to assure healthy alignment as their tiny bodies develop.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for children?

Children grow at a remarkable rate. Any irregularities or subluxations that occurred during birth can cause improper development as the child grows. Likewise, many childhood injuries can create misalignments that often develop into worse problems over the years. The benefits of chiropractic care for children are validated by many pediatricians, and you should discuss this with your own family physician. Among the benefits of chiropractic care for children are:

  • Treatment of acute conditions including birth trauma, sports injuries and accidents
  • Treatment of chronic conditions including sleep issues, chronic earache, scoliosis, neck pain and headaches
  • Preventive treatment to help delay or prevent degenerative disease, and encourage a life-long practice of wellness

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for headaches?

Headaches are an incredibly common ailment for people in the US; in fact 9 in 10 people suffer from them at some point in their lives. Many of these headaches (some studies suggest at much as 95%) are the result of tension, in the next, shoulders and back. One of the primary benefits of spinal alignment and chiropractic care is a reduction or elimination of these types of tension headaches! If you suffer from headaches of any type, consult a chiropractor about the benefits you may get from treatment. Other benefits from chiropractic care in managing headaches include proper nutritional information, posture adjustments, proper ergonomics, exercises to strengthen affected areas, and relaxation techniques.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for infants?

Spinal alignment problems can develop during labor and delivery, especially is there is any trauma to the baby or mother during the birth process. Traumatic birth syndrome is well-documented, and can create many subluxation issues in the newborn. A huge benefit of chiropractic care for infants is spotting these problems and addressing them while the infant is still in a very relaxed and pliable state. This not only relieves any discomfort the infant might have now, it also can prevent future problems for the developing child.

Are there benefits of chiropractic care for kids?

Kids grow at a remarkable rate. Any irregularities or subluxations that occurred during birth can cause improper development as the child grows. Likewise, many childhood injuries can create misalignments that often develop into worse problems over the years. The benefits of chiropractic care for children are validated by many pediatricians, and you should discuss this with your own family physician. Among the benefits of chiropractic care for kids are:

  • Treatment of acute conditions including birth trauma, sports injuries and accidents
  • Treatment of chronic conditions including sleep issues, chronic earache, scoliosis, neck pain and headaches
  • Preventive treatment to help delay or prevent degenerative disease, and encourage a life-long practice of wellness

I’ve heard of the benefits of chiropractic care for neck pain, but I’m not sure it can help me.

We hear this a lot. Almost everyone knows someone who has benefits from chiropractic care for neck pain, but are unsure that it can really help in their own case. Just about everyone can use some chiropractic adjustment, as the stress of modern life, combined with improper posture and lack of exercise, causes degeneration of the spinal column.

When properly adjusted, your neck should be pain free, and the benefits of chiropractic care for neck pain are huge! Imagine being able to turn your head and look fully over your shoulder, or read a book comfortably. Imagine getting through the day without an aching neck from looking at the computer screen! Talk to your chiropractor about the benefits of chiropractic care for neck pain, and ask for a free consultation on how this can help you.

Are there benefits of chiropractic care for teens?

Many parents today have questions about the benefits of chiropractic care for teens. Amazingly, studies suggest that as many as 80% of infants are born with a misalignment of the C1 vertebra. Left untreated in the developing years, this can result in big problems down the road. One of the main benefits of chiropractic care for teens is spotting and correcting any existing misalignment. Secondly, treatment can help the developing teen by making sure their entire nervous system is working properly. This helps all functions of the body, including digestion, immune system and overall physical strength. Lastly, if your teen plays sports or does other high impact activities, regular chiropractic care can ensure that any injuries are properly treated, to avoid larger problems down the road. Combined with proper nutrition and good exercise, chiropractic care for teens can start them out on a healthy and active lifestyle.

Can you explain the benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a time of extreme change in a woman’s body. Added weight, stress on particular joints, and the changes that occur in the nervous system can lead to discomfort and pain, and can even have long term effects after the baby is born.

The benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy include:

  • Assurance that the nervous system is working properly
  • Helpful information on proper diet and nutrition
  • Instruction on helpful exercises
  • Adjustments of the changing spinal column and other joints that see additional stress due to the baby
  • A more relaxed mother, which generally means an easier birth and a happier baby

When done properly by a well-trained doctor, the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy are immense. Talk to us today for a free consultation.

Can you explain the benefits of regular chiropractic care?

Many people believe that chiropractic care is only necessary when dealing with a recent injury. Actually, regular chiropractic care has many benefits, and on-going treatments are the best way to stay healthy and pain-free. Among the benefits of regular chiropractic care are:

  • Relief from pinched nerves to keep neck and back pain at bay.
  • Correction of scoliosis, a chronic condition that usually develops in late childhood, and causes a curving of the spine. Left untreated, this can lead to more severe problems in later life.
  • Relief from sciatica that can cause pain anywhere from the lower back down through the legs.
  • Help with headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries.

There are, of course, many more benefits of regular chiropractic care; call us for a free consultation.

I’m in the Blue Care network; do they cover chiropractic care?

While your specific plan may vary, many health care insurance plans do cover chiropractic care. Some will cover treatment based on the type of injury or cause of the problem, while others have a more generous coverage. If you aren’t sure, call your insurance company and ask. Or stop by our office or phone us, and we will gladly make a phone call on your behalf to see if your Blue Care network plan (or other insurance plan) covers chiropractic care.

Can you go to the chiropractor during pregnancy?

What does a chiropractor use as chiropractic adjustment tools?

The primary chiropractic adjustment tool is the doctor’s well-trained hands. With his or her hands, your chiropractic will manipulate and adjust the places in your body that need attention. This goes far beyond a massage, although sometimes massage is used as part of the process.

The adjustments are generally done on a chiropractic table that is specially designed to support the body during manipulation. Sometimes called a drop table, this table uses the patient’s own body weight to help in making the adjustment. Your chiropractor may also use tools including:

  • roller table to help loosen muscles before an adjustment
  • an activator, a small hand-held chiropractic adjustment tool that helps move vertebra without stimulating the muscles around it
  • an impulse adjusting instrument that allows the chiropractor deliver short, repetitive impulses to help in the adjustment process.

Chiropractic care after pregnancy is critical to help the mom feel better, have more energy to deal with her new bundle of joy, and return to her pre-pregnancy state.

I’m considering chiropractic care. Explain the benefits and risks.

Your spine is the housing for your body’s entire energy system. If it is out of alignment, your body simply doesn’t function properly. The primary benefit of chiropractic care and massage is to realign the spine properly and gradually, so that the nervous system can function properly again. This can reduce back and neck pain and well as eliminate headaches, and will help your entire body function and feel better.

An “adjustment” is the term we use to refer to what happens during each visit. At your initial consultation, we gain a good understanding of where your spine needs re-alignment. During each adjustment, we do just that…gently “adjust” the spine back toward its healthy and optimal position. The benefits of chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustment include relief from pain and headaches, better posture, higher energy and improved overall body health.

The risks of chiropractic care are generally mild, and may include:

  • Minor discomfort and muscle pain at the site of the adjustment
  • Minor swelling after an adjustment

Are there chiropractic care benefits for children?

Children grow at a remarkable rate. Any irregularities or subluxations that occurred during birth can cause improper development as the child grows.

What is a chiropractic care center?

A chiropractic care center provides complete chiropractic evaluation and care in one spot. Generally it will include at least one Doctor of Chiropractic, as well as trained office personnel. Sometimes the chiropractic care center may also house massage therapists, nutritionists or wellness coaches to offer a truly holistic approach to your well-being.

Is chiropractic care during early pregnancy important?

If you are pregnant, the sooner you begin chiropractic care the better the results. Due to the hormones of pregnancy, your body begins changing in subtle ways almost immediately after becoming pregnant. While these changes may take a while to be visible, your body is re-arranging itself to carry the additional weight of your unborn child, and this means changes in your back, neck, hips, pelvis and internal organs. Chiropractic care early in pregnancy is important to help make sure you spine stays in good alignment during all of these changes.

Is chiropractic care during pregnancy okay?

Not only is chiropractic care and pregnancy safe, it’s critical! Pregnancy is a time of extreme change in a woman’s body. Added weight, stress on particular joints, and the changes that occur in the nervous system can lead to discomfort and pain, and can even have long term effects after the baby is born.

  • Assurance that the nervous system is working properly
  • Helpful information on proper diet and nutrition
  • Instruction on helpful exercises
  • Adjustments of the changing spinal column and other joints that see additional stress due to the baby
  • A more relaxed mother, which generally means an easier birth and a happier baby

Can chiropractic care during pregnancy ease back pain?

Yes, it can. A woman’s body undergoes enormous changes and stress while pregnant. The additional weight of the unborn baby can cause back and neck pain that, if left untreated, can become quite uncomfortable. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can ease this back pain, and relieve stress throughout the body. Ask your OB/GYN if you can benefit from this, then ask us for a free consult.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy …is it safe?

It’s safe, it’s effective and it is critically important to help keep your body in proper alignment during this time of enormous physical change. During pregnancy, your body can easily become misaligned due to the growing baby and its weight; chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and effective way to help keep your body functioning well. Doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to work with pregnant patients for optimal results. Of course, if you have any concerns, or are suffering a complicated or high-risk pregnancy, be sure to talk to your OB/GYN before seeking any medical treatment.
