I want to let all know that this is a great therapy office. During my time there I began to get a good understanding of the people and what they do for you. For a long time I had very little movement in my shoulders and lower back. Since going to this clinic it is much better for me and I can reach a lot better than I could. Also walking has gotten better somewhat. These people do great work with you and have you feeling a lot better each visit. My time is over and I’m doing better and would’ve like to have had more time with them. I want everyone to know that this is a good place to go for your treatment. Much love to all.

His team, Joe, Mike and Tra, are great to work with. It’s always a great atmosphere when I go to therapy. Hands down, one of the best physical therapy clinics around!!

Chiropractic Questions? We’ve got answers..
01. How much does a chiropractor cost?
The cost of chiropractic treatment ranges. Kaizo Health in Landover accepts major insurances, personal injury and worker’s compensation claims. We will bill your health insurance and process the claims for you. You are responsible for paying your deductible or co-insurance if applicable.
Kaizo Health also offer affordable medical self-pay plans. These are great if you do not have insurance or your insurance is not in-network. Chirohealth USA allows you to enroll yourself and anyone that lives in your household for $49 for one year. The heavily discounted, first appointment includes a full exam, medical history overview, treatment, adjustments and rehab. All follow ups are capped at a discounted price. This is a great way to ensure that you and your family are getting the care you need at an affordable rate.
We also offer interest-free, no-minimum payment plans for any remaining balances.
02. Can I crack my own back or neck?
The short answer is “yes” and “no”. First let’s understand what causes the “cracking” sound. Spinal bones are connected by a right sided and left sided joint. The “cracking sound is caused by the formation of a gas bubble inside the spinal joints when the two joint surfaces of spinal bones are separated. So, if you are performing a stretch or movement that allows for gapping of the spinal joints enough where the gas bubble can be formed, you will hear the “cracking” sound.
HOWEVER, the difference between “self-cracking” and having a licensed, qualified Doctor of Chiropractic performing an adjustment is that when you are “self-cracking”, the joint surfaces that are separating are already moving well, and possibly could even be hypermobile, or moving beyond their appropriate normal range of motion. They become hypermobile to compensate for joints that are stuck, fixated or not moving through its full range.
Doctors of Chiropractic address the fixated joints as typically fixated joints cause stiffness and pain. So, “self-cracking” feels good temporarily, but patients feel like they need to do it over and over and over again because they cannot address the fixated joint, so symptoms come back. So anyone can potentially “self-crack”, but if patients want long lasting relief, have a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic address and adjust the fixated joints, and prescribe appropriate exercises, is going to provide a much more effective, and long-lasting solution.
03. How often do I need to see a chiropractor?
Most people start off seeing the chiropractor once or twice a week. Each individualized treatment plan is created based on the patient. The exact number of treatments might differ depending on the severity of pain or injury.
Treatments will decrease once a patient starts to see progress in their symptoms. Once a patient has completed all treatment appointments, they will receive another evaluation. If the chiropractor believes the patient is better, they will discharge the patient.
Sometimes a patient will need to come in for follow up treatment for their back or neck pain. But our goal is always to provide pain-relief for the long haul and not have to see our patients again!
04. What is a chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a restoration chiro procedure in which a chiropractor uses their hands or a small instrument to apply pressure to a joint in the body. This can be on the neck, back, shoulder, knee, or almost any other part of the body.
