Can you help with migraines?  Neck pain?  Vertigo?  How much does it cost?  Where are you located?


If you're a new patient, you may have some questions for us.  Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we get.  If you don't find your answer here, please feel free to reach out to the office and we'd be happy to help!

  • What is the adjustment like?
    Our adjustments are very gentle and precise - there is no twisting, popping, or cracking. We adjust by hand, using a cervical drop. The pressure we use to adjust is about what it would take to squish a grape, or tap a pencil against the desk. You'll be amazed that a gentle adjustment is all takes to help you start feeling better.
  • How much does it cost?
    We have several options for payment in the office. Total cost will depend on your case and what the Doctor recommends for you, but our average costs are as follows: Initial Consultation - FREE. Our first meeting should be focused on whether or not we are the right fit for your healing needs. The initial consultation gives you time with the Doctor to discuss your case and decide together whether this is the right course of care for you. Exam (New Patient or Transfer Patient) - $175 CBCT Imaging - $250 Office Visit - $75 Care Plans - VARIES. Typical Care Plans will include 12 visits, but it will vary based on what the Doctor recommends for your case. These options will be discussed at your Initial Consultation. Typically you will save 10-12% with a Care Plan option.
  • You are a cash practice, does that mean you don't accept credit cards?
    We accept all major credit cards and Health Savings Account plans. A cash practice refers to the patient paying out of pocket for their care, not that you are required to pay with cash. We are not in network with any insurance provider.
  • What conditions can you help?
    Upper Cervical adjustments can help with many different issues. When the brain and body aren't communicating well due to a misalignment, signals from the brain to the body don't get through properly. This is why we see a variety of issues get better once we clear that communication by reducing the misalignment. Most commonly we help with: - Migraines & Headaches - Vertigo & Dizziness - Neck Pain - Back Pain & Sciatica - Range of Motion issues - Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain - Neuralgias (Trigeminal Neuralgia, Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia, etc.) - Neuropathies (Upper & Lower Extremity) - Scoliosis - Posture - especially "text" neck (forward head posture) - Etc. Schedule a free consultation to discuss your concerns with the Doctor and see if ONYX Upper Cervical Chiropractic can help.
  • Will I need to get adjustments for the rest of my life?
    In our office you'll hear us talk about how "holding is healing." Our goal when we correct an upper cervical misalignment is for that correction to last long term. In the beginning you'll likely be adjusted multiple times, however, as your body and muscles start to heal and get used to the correct position, you will need fewer adjustments as they begin to last longer and longer. When the Doctor sees you holding your adjustments, she'll adjust your frequency of visits accordingly. This means that you may be seeing the Doctor frequently in the beginning (2-3 times a week), but as your body heals, you'll see her less and less until you're coming in only 2-3 times a year to get a check up. Just like your teeth need a couple of check ups a year, your spine needs check ups too. You and the Doctor will come up with the frequency that is right for your body.
