Lexington, KY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/08/2014 -- According to the American Chiropractic Association, low back pain continues to rank at the top of the list for disability conditions across the globe, and more than half of Americans state they have back pain each year. "Often, when patients go to visit a chiropractor, they find the doctor does an initial consultation, yet doesn't begin treatment right away. This isn't the case with Lexington Family Chiropractic as patients receive treatment on the first visit. When one is in pain, treatment shouldn't be delayed, and it never is when one visits Lexington Family Chiropractic," Dr. Heath Gallentine, a Chiropractor in Lexington, KY, explains.
Others put off visiting a Chiropractic clinic as they worry their insurance company won't cover the visit. Lexington Family Chiropractic accepts all major insurance plans and submits bills on the patient's behalf. "Many don't have insurance for various reasons, and the practice understands this, offering a New Patient Special. To better accommodate all who come to the office, patients typically get treatment within minutes, rather than spending their valuable time sitting in the waiting room. If, for any reason, the appointment will be delayed, a staff member speaks to the patient to apologize and explain the situation. Patients always come first at Lexington Family Chiropractic as they are what keeps the practice open and in operation," Dr. Gallentine continues.
Patients often fear the unknown, especially when it comes to their health. Dr. Gallentine explains every step of a patient's treatment, while answering any questions the patient may have. Furthermore, he works to keep visits to a minimum as he understands patients don't want to make daily or weekly visits for any length of time. The goal remains to treat the condition in the shortest time possible. As Dr. Gallentine explains, however, he is always willing to see patients again for yearly check ups or if a new problem arises. Yearly visits help to prevent problems and catch existing ones while they are still in the early stage, so check ups are highly recommended.
Dr. Gallentine spent four years studying the spine, unlike general practitioners who spend limited time during their studies on this part of the body. He makes use of multiple techniques, depending on the needs of the patient. He studied at Palmer College of Chiropractic,the very first chiropractic college. "Read patient testimonials today and schedule an appointment. We can't wait to be of assistance to you," Dr. Gallentine proclaims.
