If you have insurance that covers chiropractic, it should cover your care at our office. Please bear in mind that our office is considered a cash practice. In other words, we require payment to be made at the time of service. We will take care of sending the necessary receipts (superbills) to your insurance carrier so that reimbursement can be made directly to you. We do offer affordable options to help you pay for your care.

When you arrive, expect to be warmly greeted. If you were unable to print the new patient forms off of this website and fill them in at home, please arrive 15 minutes early to your first scheduled appointment to complete them. If you have any insurance information or past medical records (medications taken, copies of X-rays or MRIs, etc.), please bring those with you so the doctor can have an opportunity to look them over.
After you arrive, you will be given a tour of our office. Then you will sit down with Dr. Raschke for a complementary consultation. Based on the information gathered in the consultation, you may choose to receive a chiropractic examination, which will be used to determine whether or not you are a candidate for treatment. If it is found that there is a chiropractic cause to your condition, specific x-rays will be taken to calculate a specific formula(s) for your spinal adjustment. Be assured that radiological exams are performed only when clinically necessary to insure proper patient care. The pictures of your spine are taken using a digital high frequency x-ray unit, which requires drastically less radiation exposure compared to traditional x-ray machines. After hours quiet time is required in order to properly study your films / case.
Please allow .5 – .75 hours for the first visit.
Second Visit “Test Adjustment”:
Dr. Raschke will sit down with you and explain his examination and x-ray findings. He will then explain the adjusting procedure. After the adjustment you will spend the next 10 – 15 minutes resting to allow the body to adapt to its new position. We will then take a post-adjustment x-ray to determine how your body responded to the adjustment. This is typically done only after the initial adjustment and helps Dr. Raschke to know if any “fine tuning” will need to take place in the future.
We will be closely monitoring your body’s ability to maintain spinal alignment over your first few weeks of care. Keep in mind that these appointments aren’t necessarily to “adjust” you, but rather to monitor how well your adjustment is holding in place. Our goal is to get your body stable enough to start healing and functioning how God designed, thereby dramatically decreasing your visit frequency, eventually reaching the point of only needing a few “spinal check-ups” per year.
Aside from the first visit, most appointments at our office will be 25 minutes or less.
