What is a Chiropractic appointment like?
During your initial visit, our team will perform a thorough evaluation of your health. We’ll review your medical history in detail and discuss any concerns you may have. This information will help us create a personalized treatment plan, designed specifically for you.
This plan will be customized to your body and the nature of your injury or pain, providing the safest and most effective treatment possible.
Your chiropractor will then conduct a series of treatments, which could include manual adjustments, soft tissue work, dry needling, or cupping. These treatments are designed to address your injury and the surrounding muscles and tissues.
In addition to these treatments, we will guide you through and prescribe specific rehabilitative exercises. These exercises aim to strengthen your muscles and the surrounding areas, promoting recovery and preventing further injuries.
How does a Chiropractor Use Rehabilitative Exercises?
We truly believe in the power of coupling chiropractic treatment with rehabilitative exercises. It’s this combination that often yields the best results for our patients, particularly those suffering from back pain, neck pain, or other muscle and joint issues.
This approach doesn’t just offer immediate relief from pain. It also paves the way for patients to preserve their progress. Our end goal is to improve the strength, flexibility, and mobility of muscles in and around the painful areas. Doing this can keep additional or recurring injuries from cropping up. After all, our focus is on finding the root of the problem and remedying it from its foundation.

What our patients have to say
I walked into Kaizo Health with chronic back and neck pain that was interfering with my ability to work and get restful sleep. Dr. Sheldon and his team wasted no time in coming up with a treatment plan to start helping me feel better. I have been working with Matt during my sessions for some time now and I already notice a positive difference in the pain I experience daily. I went from being chronically fatigued and achy to having more stamina when I work. Welcoming, professional and convenient service.

I’m really pleased with the chiropractic and physical therapy I received post surgery at this Kaizo Health in Rockville Md. I was pretty locked up and weakened after surgery “down time” and Sheldon found 10 cracks my first visit. Matt was my dedicated PT person and is really flexible in adapting exercising to how you are feeling on a particular day. He keenly listens, remembers and cares about you and what you say, and readily identifies how far to push you, or what new exercise to introduce and when. He is very supportive and definitely encouraging “ you got this!” and also in addition to his Physical therapy certification and expertise is also a certified personal trainer. I appreciate Sheldon and Matt getting me feeling better and stronger and I think you will be in good hands with them too!

I recommend coming to Kaizo health because they take their time getting to know you and what works for you. They have a lot of patience when it comes to your recovery , everything is on your time. I also recommend working with either Tati or Matt both are really great and funny! When they are making conversation with you it makes time go faster and it’s also better that way your not sitting in silence for your time being. The music is also an great add on to the place , it helps keep you dancing and moving.

Chiropractic Questions? We’ve got answers..
01. How much does a chiropractor cost?
The cost of chiropractic treatment ranges. Kaizo Health in Rockville 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 when 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.
Chiropractic adjustments can restore movement and mobility to the joint. It can also improve your body’s overall physical function. An adjustment realigns your body back to its natural form. This can improve blood and oxygen flow.
