Frequently Asked Questions


When Should I see a Chiropractor?

If you are experiencing chronic back or neck pain such as discomfort, tingling joints, or headaches an experienced Lewisville chiropractor can help you find relief. Chiropractic treatment involves the rebalancing of your body through structural realignment that removes interference in the nervous system. Even those not suffering from chronic pain can benefit from the health and wellness benefits of chiropractic adjustment.

If you’re suffering from a sport- or fitness-related injury, or have a muscle, ligament, or joint disorder that causes you discomfort or pain, an expert Lewisville chiropractor can help you devise a pain management plan. At River Oaks Spine Center, our skilled specialists can create a personalized plan tailored to your unique situation. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment.


What is subluxation and what causes it?

Subluxation describes a vertebrae that has become misaligned or abnormally positioned. Many things can cause subluxations, including bodily trauma as a result of car accidents, falls, or contact sports. Certain behaviors, such as improperly lifting or carrying heavy objects like purses, walking in high heels, or poor posture can also lead to subluxation. Ongoing chiropractic treatment can help treat subluxation. At River Oaks Spine Center, our leading Lewisville pain management specialists can address subluxation, amongst other chiropractic and medical needs.


How can a chiropractic adjustment help me?

If you suffer from back or neck pain, including chronic issues and subluxation, chiropractic adjustment is a safe, painless way to treat the root of your symptoms. Non-invasive and drug-free, chiropractic treatment can offer immediate relief, as well as a better quality of life with continued treatment. If you’re dealing with chronic pain, headaches, arthritis, a pinched nerve, or even fibromyalgia, chiropractic adjustment can help you find balance and reprieve. River Oaks Spine Center specializes in Lewisville spine decompression, pain management, medical massage, and more, and can provide you with the customized treatment plan you deserve.


Sometimes, small pockets of gas or air can become trapped between joints. During chiropractic adjustment, these air pockets are often released, resulting in a popping sound. This is perfectly normal and is only associated with minimal—if any—discomfort.

Why do I sometimes hear a popping sound during an adjustment?


Chiropractic treatment is covered by many health insurance companies. At River Oaks Spine Center, we accept most major health insurance, as well as many smaller independent insurance companies. To see a list of health insurance providers we accept, visit our health insurance page.

Is Chiropractic treatment covered by insurance?


While everyone’s body is different, and therefore everyone experiences differing results after a chiropractic adjustment, many people find immediate or near-immediate pain relief after visiting a Lewisville chiropractor. Over time, you will likely see a reduction or complete elimination in back or neck pain, improved posture, a feeling of being more balanced, and a plan for pain management. Some soreness is to be expected after an adjustment, but this is typically minor. Ultimately, chiropractic treatment has been shown to greatly ease or eradicate chronic pain.
