Do I Need a Doctor's Referral?

We accept doctor referrals however they are not necessary to begin treatment and they are generally not required by your insurance.

Can You Bill My Insurance Company Directly?

No. Due to the large number of health insurance companies we are not able to directly bill your insurance company. Payment is due at your appointment and insurance companies will generally reimburse you within a few business days. The amount they reimburse depends entirely on their policy, so be sure to check this with them.

Is Chiropractic New?

Chiropractic as we know it and use it not is a little older than 100 years as it came into existance in 1895. That means that it is a relatively new form of healthcare. However, some 5,000 years ago, medical procedures that are very reminiscent of the current chiropractic were already being performed. The principle of Chiropractic was already known in Ancient Greece.

Why is Chiropractic Considered Alternative Healthcare By My Insurance Company?

A specific type of healthcare is called an alternative if it is not officially recognized by the government. However, that does not mean that such healthcare has any less value. Chiropractic care has been proven to be the most cost effective method of treating ailments such as back pain. In countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States, chiropractic care has been recognized as an official type of healthcare for decades. Hopefully chiropractic will join those ranks in the Netherlands soon.

Does Chiropractic Care Help After the First Adjustment?

In some cases the client may experience immediate relief after an adjustment. For others they may need a few more treatments to notice significant improvements. Your chiropractor will give you an indication as to how long he or she thinks your trajectory, or care plan, may take. This is closely linked to how complex the condition or complaint is and how long you have been suffering from the complaint(s).

 
Can the Complaint(s) Return After Treatment?

At Chiropractie Centraal we don’t just treat the symptom(s) of the complaint but we also look at the deeper underlying issue(s). We do this by means of a “Chiro-priorities” system to keep return of your complaint(s) to a minimum. However, our bodies are continuously being tested and often experience stress, which can cause new problems or old problems to come back. That is why our recommendation is to do a monthly to bi-monthly checkup to ensure that your body is still functioning optimally.

What Does the Chiropractor Do if He or She Cannot Help Me?

At Chiropractie Centraal an extensive complaint analysis is done after which the chiropractor draws up a personalized treatment plan. Our chiropractors are trained in such a way that when the complaint analysis shows that other medical attention is needed, they are able to refer you to the right professional.
