Kunz Chiropractic FAQs

Answers to Common Questions

Dr. Curt Kunz has provided answers to some of the most commonly asked questions he receives about chiropractic care. He invites you to give him a call at (402) 614-5677 if you have any additional questions. He would be happy to answer them!

Once I go to a chiropractor, will I always have to go?

Yes and No. We have people who want to get their issues resolved and then move on to correcting or maintaining their spine. These patients choose to continue to come for added benefits that can only be seen for longer periods of time. Other people choose to get their problems resolved and once they are back to normal functioning or feeling they will come back when they have another issue. Our office is not my way or the highway. We support and partner with each person in a unique way that they choose for however long that may be.

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

Sometimes when you’re in pain the adjustment isn’t the most comfortable, but most of the time there is not an increase in pain involved.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

Definitely not! The interesting thing is chiropractic honors the intelligence of your body and if the intelligence is interrupted causing your problem chiropractic will help.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

The beginning of life can come with some stress to the spine to start and it is a great idea to get a newborn checked. It just sets them up for success as they develop and grow.

Does insurance cover chiropractic visits?

Most policies have coverage for chiropractic; it just depends on the benefits available. We will happily check your insurance if you would like us to and make a cost analysis before we begin care.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies with each insurance company or if you are choosing to do self-pay. All of which are very affordable options that we will go over before starting any care plan. We are dedicated to keeping health costs low and you can be sure your chiropractic care will be affordable. If you have insurance Danielle will check all of your benefits and give a full report on your second visit. If you are self pay there are many options available and Danielle will explain those fully if needed.

Do I need a referral from my physician?

You do not. In NE, chiropractors are primary care physicians.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes, medical doctors are necessary for some issues and just like chiropractic can’t cure everything, medical doctors are the same. We happily work with providers from other areas as we want to put our patients’ needs first.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Most of the time Yes. After we perform a full exam and possibly x-rays to make sure we have all the information needed to provide a high-quality adjustment.

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, if your issues require exercises or support items we will recommend those.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes, one of the reasons we are thorough with our exam process is to gather information before we care for a patient. Each case is different and you want to make sure to let us know of any surgeries.

How long does the first visit take?

The first visit usually is about 45 minutes and is a very thorough exam. This exam is designed to give the doctor as much information as possible so they can judge if chiropractic care is a good option for you along with a possible care plan.

Will the doctor take x-rays?

After your consultation the doctor will determine what tests are necessary and one of those is x-rays. X-rays are a great source of information about the alignment of your spine along with how your spine is aging. If your doctor determines because of your initial complaint or after doing other tests x-rays are needed they will be taken on site.
