Frequently asked questions
Does MAC Performance accept Insurance?
We utilize a private pay system to benefit you as a patient. We want to ensure that we can deliver the care need to get you better the fastest. A Superbill is provided with your care for reimbursement. We do accept HSA and FSA cards.
Do I have to get my neck "popped"?
No. Your care is based on what you are comfortable with and what you need. There are other options for adjusting your neck then "cracking it." Dr. Mac will work with you to determine what is best for your care and recovery.
Is getting adjusted safe?
Yes, for most people, getting adjusted is extremely safe. Adjusting has fewer side effects than opioids for pain management. The biggest concern people have is adjusting the neck and stroke. The media has made this out to be a horrific event that isn't supported in the research. But the best place to look is the people who asses the risk of a provider is a malpractice provider. Malpractice covers protection when wrongful practices result in bodily injury, property damage, and medical expenses. For a Family Practice Medical doctor, they will pay an average of $ 4,000-$ 12,000, a surgeon will pay $30,000- $50,000, and for a chiropractor, the standard is $ 1,500 for the same coverage. The companies that have to most to loss do not see us as a significant risk. Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of care on the market because it is drug-free and has minimal side effects.
What does a Chirorpactor treat?
Chiropractic treats musculoskeletal conditions. Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments, and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. DCs also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
