Chiropractor Sparks NV Rick Swecker

Chiropractic care ensures that the daily impacts of life are not wearing your health down over time. By thoroughly evaluating your health and current physical state, our chiropractic team in Sparks NV can help you detect problems before they develop into more severe issues.

Family First Chiropractic Approach in Sparks NV

Chiropractic care focuses on supporting your body's innate intelligence, increasing your ability to adapt to life's physical, chemical, and mental stressors.

Types of Care

We use various tools and techniques to correct subluxation, patterns that interfere with your neuro-spinal communication in your body. Depending on your unique needs, your care plan may include chiropractic adjustments, nervous system re-patterning, and soft tissue work.

Lifestyle Recommendations

At Family First Chiropractic, we believe that increasing your overall wellness and stress adaptability is best supported by lifestyle adjustments. We provide our patients with support and resources for better movement, nutrition, mindset, and recovery habits to improve adaptability to physical, chemical, and mental stress.

What to Expect when Beginning Chiropractic Care

Introductory Call

To learn more about chiropractic care and discuss your unique needs or challenges, we recommend that you schedule a 15-minute introductory call. Our Patient Care Coordinator can also assist you in scheduling your consultation appointment.

Consultation Appointment

We will begin building a relationship and foundation for your well-being in the consultation session. Each consultation appointment includes initial testing, including a balance test, blood pressure check, and Heart Rate Variability, which measures the nervous system’s ability to adapt to stress.

In conversation with a Family First doctor, you’ll discuss your health concerns, relevant medical history, and what you hope to gain from chiropractic care. You can expect to understand better how your symptoms relate to their cause.

Finally, the doctor will perform a detailed exam which includes a scan of your nervous system, muscle system, posture picture, and specific x-rays to determine how to best care for you.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Our goal is to help you experience less pain and decreased symptoms by increasing your adaptability to life’s stressors. Over time, you’ll develop a greater awareness of the signals communicated by your body and feel empowered to make decisions aligned with your health, curiosity, and evolution.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if chiropractic care is right for me?

If you’re looking for a partner and guide in your wellness journey, Family First chiropractic care may be right for you. We care deeply for your highest well-being, focus on nervous system function, and we strive to share resources that have the potential to impact your life positively.

What is an adjustment? Is it painful?

An adjustment is a specific force applied to the body to correct subluxation patterns and bring the body into a state of balance, ease, and optimal healing capacity. The doctors are highly trained to apply the most specific adjustment with the least amount of force to create the most change in your nervous system. Most patients find adjustments to be enjoyable, gentle, and effective.

Are you currently accepting new patients?

Yes! We encourage you to call our office and schedule your consultation appointment. You can also schedule an introductory call with our Patient Care Coordinator if you have more questions.

Do you take insurance?

Family First Chiropractic is out of network with most insurance companies. We encourage you to discuss your unique circumstances during your introductory call with our Patient Care Coordinator.

How does payment work?

After your consultation, your doctor will come up with your personalized patient care plan and payment plan. Our goal is to make chiropractic care accessible and affordable for all our patients and their families. We’re committed to openly discussing financial commitments.

How frequently should I expect to come for care?

Everyone’s needs and circumstances will vary. The care plan you receive after a consultation will include a detailed proposal for future care. Most patients initially need more support but find a comfortable frequency to support their needs and lifestyle goals.

How long before I can see the positive impacts of chiropractic care?

Most patients experience some positive impact immediately. However, like any wellness practice or lifestyle change, you can expect the best results after three to six months of care. The longer you’ve experienced pain or an imbalance in your body, the longer it can take to find a state of wellness.
