How to Choose a Chiropractor in Salt Lake City, Utah

You have a lot of options when you seek chiropractic care. You may want to keep in mind the following:

1. Choose a chiropractor who listens: You’re the one paying for your healthcare, so take advantage of the situation and choose a chiropractor who really listens to you- not a crack-back-thank-you-‘mam kind of office. If your chiropractor isn’t taking the time to listen to you, come and find out how much better your chiropractic care can be. The doctors at Balanced Health Chiropractic take the time to listen.

2. Choose a chiropractor who lives close to home: It’s very likely that your chiropractic care will consist of several visits. It’s better if your chiropractor is located close to where you live, work, or spend time. Balanced Health Chiropractic is about as convenient as you can get in the Salt Lake valley– on the corner of 7200 South and State Street (in the same parking lot as Shane Jewelry).

3. Choose a chiropractor with the right price: Just as not all chiropractic care is equal, different chiropractors charge different amounts. Balanced Health offers a Practice Membership: a great way to keep your chiropractic heath care costs down, and it doesn’t require you to have any health insurance.

We look forward to earning your business the old fashioned way- through doctors who listen, are close to home, and charge a fair price. Call our office today at 801-748-0056 to find out more.

Why Is It Painful To Turn My Head?

If you’ve been in an auto accident recently, you may be experiencing pain when turning your head. The fact is that an estimated 53% of all motor vehicle accidents result in whiplash injuries and 43% of those with whiplash injuries fail to fully recover.

Treatment to Improve Cervical Range of Motion for Whiplash Injuries

Naturally, a broken bone should be immobilized (such as with a cast) but the moving bones of the spine simply need improved mobility.

The best course of action for any suffering from a  cervical range of motion/whiplash injury? Make your way to your chiropractor’s office as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner you receive chiropractic care- the better.

There have been studies that show chiropractic adjustments immediately following whiplash injuries help reduce pain and restore range of motion. One study suggests that patients with restricted or reduced cervical range of motion that lasts for six months or more are at far greater risk for long-term problems.

A study conducted in Spain and reported in the September 2006 Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that just one cervical adjustment was more effective in reducing cervical pain and increasing range of motion that any other type of manual mobilization procedure.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident or feel pain in your neck with any type of movement, please call our office at 801-748-0056 to schedule your chiropractic appointment. Cervical chiropractic adjustments are safe and very effective in restoring improved range of motion and in reducing neck pain. Chiropractic appointments at our Midvale, Utah office are easy to schedule.

How Much Does a Chiropractic Visit Cost?

Most first time chiropractic patients, and even those who have visited before, often wonder what the average cost of a chiropractic visit is. The cost of a chiropractic visit will depend on what type of appointment you are scheduling, as well as your location. The estimates below are based on chiropractic prices in and around the Midvale, Utah area (in Salt Lake County), however they are a good base estimate.

Average Chiropractic Visit Costs

Chiropractic visits are typically billed at the time of service. Some chiropractors will bill your insurance, but a typical visit can cost the same as or less than your insurance co-pay.

A typical visit to your chiropractor for an adjustment will cost between $25 – $100 on average. There are a lot of different types of services or modalities that can be offered by your doctor, which may in turn affect the price. For a “maintenance visit”, your cost is usually $25 – $75.

Chiropractic Monthly Membership 

The most affordable way to get the most “bang for your buck” for your chiropractic care is to sign up for a monthly membership. Much like a gym membership, a chiropractic membership allows a patient to be seen for a low monthly fee. Membership plans are likely the most affordable way to care for your neck, back and spine if you are planning on visiting a chiropractor more than once- which you likely should be. Most patients who are experiencing chronic pain will find that they need regular “maintenance” appointments. Unlimited chiropractic visits = you feeling good long term.

Our Monthly Membership:

Unlimited Personal Membership = $69/month
Unlimited Family Membership = $129/month

Perks of monthly membership include:

  • Unlimited visits
  • No appointment necessary
  • Month-to-month; no long-term commitment

If you do the math, your visits can cost as little as $2.75 if you are coming in every business day. This is by far the most affordable chiropractic option.


Initial Chiropractor Visit Cost and Description:

If you’re not lucky enough to live close to a chiropractic office offering a monthly plan, you’ll likely end up paying out of pocket for your initial chiropractic visit. An initial chiropractic visit will likely be your longest visit, and cover the most ground. An initial chiropractic visit can cover things like:

  • Initial Consultation
  • Complete Examination
  • Orthopedic and Neurologic Evaluation
  • Written Report of Findings

The average cost of your first chiropractic visit costs approximately $140 – $250. In some instances your initial visit may actually be split into two separate visits.

Follow Up Chiropractor Visit Cost and Description:

Once your doctor has had a chance to review the finding from your initial chiropractic visit, you will be seen for your follow visits. These visits may include a variety of services including:

  • Chiropractic Adjustment
  • Electrical Stimulation (aka ESTIM)
  • Traction Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Muscular Reeducation Exercise
  • Ice or Heat Therapy

The cost of your follow up chiropractic visit will vary based on the items prescribed, but the average cost of your chiropractic visit will cost will be $25 – $75.

Chiropractic Care With Insurance

Many traditional health insurance policies “cover” some portion of your chiropractic care, however they usually only cover a limited number of visits. Unfortunately most health insurance plans do not cover a significant portion of the cost of chiropractic visits, and thus most of the cost is left to the patient to pay out of pocket.
