FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What insurances do you accept?

A: KinnCare Chiropractic accepts Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield (and all subsidiaries) and United Healthcare (and all subsidiaries), and Americroup. Sorry, Tri-Care does not accept us (because we are not located inside their facility) however, ask us about our veteran's discounts for out-of-pocket services. Naturopathic Medical visits are not covered by health insurance in the state of Maryland, but you will be given a reciept to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Q: What is a cold laser? Is it really cold? Is it dangerous?

A: Not dangerous. Lasers are pure light energy. It's called "cold" to differentiate it from the lasers used for surgeries or other purposes that are much more intense or "hot." Its "cold" because when you apply it to the skin there is no heat produced (some cold lasers do produce heat!).

All lasers are pure light energy -

Q: How does the laser work?

A: Theraputic lasers like the 250 Watt superpulsed series we have at KinnCare produce a specific wavelength (or several wavelengths) of light that have been found to increase the metabolic processes of living cells. It basically speeds up the rate your own body heals itself. Ever seen Wolverine heal?

Our laser is one of the most powerful lasers in the world allowing us to treat deep spinal injuries with greater effectiveness than ever before. Patients typically feel the effects of the laser either immediatly or within 3-5 minutes after application.

Q: Do I need physical therapy or chiropractic?

A: The chiropractors at KinnCare Chiropractic are licensed to provided physical therapy and chiropractic services - so whether you need one or both, we've got you covered. Usually combining the two services produces the best outcome.

Q: How does chiropractic work? What's it all about?

A: Ask 10 chiropractors and you'll likely get 10 different answers. In general, we are spinal experts; passionately and obsessively learning about wellness (in addition to pathology), the human frame, body-mechanics, balance, neurology, orthopedics, while mastering a doctoral hands-on approach unparralled by any other healthcare discipline.

The adjustment is the core procedure performed by chiropractors which entails the skilled application of a high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) force into target joint(s) of the body, most commonly the spine. A 1-5 scale of increasing force of the adjustment helps grade the procedure.

Chiropractic started as a profession to help ease suffering, not as an alternative therapy intending to diagnose and treat spinal-related conditions. It has evolved into the ladder to fit inside the parameters of American healthcare.

The premise of chirpractic is simple: optimal function = optimal health.

Q: What is a typical care-plan?

A: Care plans are different for every condition and every person. Helping you with a rash is totally different than a car accident. In general, care plans range anywhere from 1-8 weeks, or even longer depending on the severity of your condition. Your individualized plan could be to rest, change your diet, and return in a month; or it could be a sparing strategy that starts at four times a week for a month and lessens with improvement. We're "outside the box" and don't plan to put you in one.
