FAQ's

Here at Healthwise Chiropractic we often hear the same few questions from our patients. We decided to create a Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) section on our website to address these questions. If you have any further questions, please click here to contact us today.

HOW LONG IS THE FIRST APPOINTMENT?
The first appointment typically takes one hour.


WILL I NEED X-RAYS?
If you have current X-Rays or MRI reports, please feel free to bring them on your first visit to your HealthWise Chiropractic doctors for review. If you do not have any current reports to share, X-Rays may be taken upon your first visit.


DO WE ACCEPT MEDICARE?
Yes.


DO WE ACCEPT MEDICAID OR TITLE 19?
Yes.


IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE COVERED UNDER WORKMAN’S COMPENSATION?
Yes. Let us know when you call that it will be a workman’s comp case. We will have you fill out the appropriate forms and then we submit them to your company for processing. If you have a workman’s comp case number or any information from your employer prior to your visit, bring that with you, as it helps us process your claims faster.


DO I NEED A REFERRAL FROM A MEDICAL DOCTOR IN ORDER TO RECEIVE CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENTS?
Not in most cases, but when we verify your insurance we will find that out. You can also call your insurance company to verify your own benefits ahead of time if you like.


IS YOUR FACILITY HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
Yes.


WILL MY TREATMENT HURT?
Our HealthWise Chiropractic doctors are trained to diagnose and treat your case as an individual with the utmost care and consideration. We offer the Pro-Adjuster, a handsfree adjustment as a treatment option, along with hands on manipulation adjustments. Some patients come to us in pain, but our goal is to have you walking out of our office in less and less pain with each visit.


HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COME IN FOR CARE?
Treatment length varies with each individual case. Generally, care falls into three groups: Acute, Supportive, and Wellness care. Acute care involves determining the present problem when pain is severe and determining a plan of action and treatment that best serves your individual case. Supportive care is for individuals whose condition is chronic in nature and requires regular care to maintain a level of health. Wellness care is for patients who find that chiropractic care enables them to function at their finest and may prevent minor problems from evolving into greater, more time consuming complications. No matter what form of care you are looking for, our Chiropractors can provide you with excellent care to return you to the level of health and function that you are capable of achieving.


ARE CHIROPRACTORS “REAL” DOCTORS?
HealthWise Chiropractic doctors are certified doctors, trained to practice Chiropractic care on patients. Following graduation from a degree program, Chiropractic Doctors must pass National Board Examinations and state licensing tests before they may practice. Just like your MD is trained in his specialty, so are Chiropractors trained in theirs.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been coming to see Dr. Bob since 1984 for my back pain. After each visit, the vast improvement lasts about one whole month. Even after all these years, Dr. Bob continues to provide outstanding care for me, my children, and my grandchildren. I've referred several people to HealthWise Chiropractic, so they too can see the results I have. My favorite part of my visits is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and doctors and, of course, the results I get that improve my daily living."
    Danny S.
  • "About ten years ago I was at the gym, I bent over and couldn't get up, the pain was horrible. I contacted Healthwise and Dr. Mike gave me an emergency appointment that evening. He did a complete physical and x-ray before he started any treatment. After my first treatment I was able to stand up and walk with minimal pain. With a few visits I was back to normal. I continued treatments as needed for the next several years.
    I see Dr. Bob regularly to stay fit and pain-free. He tests my strength and weakness to determine the best treatment. Our open discussion led him to help my acid reflux. I now exercise and walk as is essential for a septuagenarian.
    I told Dr. Bob that I was starting to get knee pain that I thought was arthritis; I didn't think chiropractic care could help. He told me about new equipment to help. I look forward to improvement.
    I was a skeptic of chiropractic care, now I would recommend HealthWise to anyone with chronic/simple pain. It worked for me. It can work for you!"
    Sherry B.
  • "I was very miserable with constant pain in my leg while knowing it had something to do with my back. My friend surprised me with an appointment with Dr. Bob. After being treated by Dr. Bob I knew right away it was exactly what I needed. I learned a lot through my conversations with the doctor. I am really thankful to Dr. Bob and his staff."
    Ed L.
  • "I had a very limited understanding of chiropractic care until I tried it for the first time 12 years ago. I came in with severe pain in my neck, which prohibited me from moving my head. I was greeted by a kind staff, had an exam and x-rays done on my first appointment followed by an adjustment. I felt so much better after my first adjustment and by following the treatment plan my headaches and migraines improved. My overall health has improved because of chiropractic care. Dr. Bob helps make sure that I am taking the right supplements to optimize my health and fitness performance. They have helped me with allergies, knee and shoulder pain, and earaches. I had no idea when I began my chiropractic journey just how much help the doctors and staff at HealthWise would be at improving my quality of life."
    Britt H.
  • "I have been a patient at HealthWise Chiropractic for over 20 years. In the past and currently I am seeing Dr. Bob, however, I have seen all docs at Healthwise. My general issues are usually seasonally related to sinus and allergies. Recently I have been receiving treatment for my hip and lower back. Dr. Bob zeros in on trigger points and quickly relieves my pain. He is a wealth of knowledge and offers help and suggestion on my health issues. The staff is friendly and helpful. I leave feeling better and I believe helps to keep my body aligned and energized. I have also come in after falls, injuries and surgeries. I truly believe my adjustments at the time added to a quicker recovery."
    Liz B.
  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Bob for two and half months. . I see him for an adjustment every two weeks. I started seeing a chiropractor for the first time in January 2021 while working in Florida for my continued lower back pain and chronic bilateral hip bursitis. Because my pain was mostly relieved with continued adjustments, I decided to continue with treatment when returning to Wisconsin. I have been very happy with my continued pain relief/adjustments at HealthWise. I highly recommend anyone with chronic back and neck pain to try chiropractic adjustments here at HealthWise. It will make your life better."

  • "I enjoy coming, getting readjusted and any additional therapies. It has made my life healthier and less stressful. If I have questions, they are answered at that visit. The staff is very professional, personable and friendly. I always look forward to my next visit with them. I am glad to be part of Healthwise Chiropractic family:)"
