I’m A New Patient Do Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt? What Causes That Cracking Sound?
Chiropractic treatment includes Chiropractic Adjustments aka Spinal Manipulations. There are many different techniques some of which create a “popping sound” in the joint when it is released. That sound is caused by a pressure change in the fluid of the joint called Cavitation. It is the same phenomena that you hear when you pop your knuckles. Generally if feels very good with immediate release of tension. Sometimes there may be a slight pain for just a moment that quickly goes away. Not all Manipulation techniques create the popping sound. Dr. Beech utilizes many methods of Manipulation which can be individually tailored to your needs.
What Is The Difference Between The Terms Deductible, Copayment and Coinsurance
Deductible – the amount you pay before your insurance is obligated to pay anything. For example, if your deductible is $500, then the first $500 of your care is “deducted” from the insurance company’s responsibility to pay. In other words, you will be out of pocket for the first $500 of care.
Copayment – a set amount that you pay on each visit. For example, if your copayment is $20 then you will be responsible to pay that amount each visit. If you owe a deductible, then the copayment would be considered part of the deductible for that visit. Therefore, if the total charge was $100. You would pay the $20 copay at the time of service. Your deductible amount owed would be $80.
Coinsurance – coinsurance is similar to a copayment except rather than a set amount, it is a percentage of the allowed charge determined by the insurance company. For example, if the insurance allowed $100 for a visit and the coinsurance is 10%, then you would owe $10 for that visit.

Where Do Your Ayurvedic products comes from ? Are They The Same As Dr. Mishra’s Products From Chandi?
Our inspiration comes from our dear departed teacher Vaidya RK Mishra. Vaidya Mishra’s family lineage (known as Shaka Vansiya) maintained the completeness of Ayurveda for over 5000 years. Vaidya carefully incorporated that ancient wisdom into all of his formulations. However, having lived in the West for more than 3 decades often he noticed that the Western physiology could not tolerate the intensity of the traditional Ayurvedic herbal formulas. Thus, he created new formulations based upon the eternal principles of Ayurveda yet modified for the physiological needs of today’s population.
We created Prabhava Ayurvedic Products to continue Vaidya’s mission. Our product’s sourcing and manufacturing are directly supervised by the remaining members of the Mishra family called the Shaka Vansiya Ayurvedic Family Foundation (SVAFF) and strictly adhere to Vaidya’s dedication to purity of materials and proper processing.
We are not connected with Dr. Mishra’s former company Chandi in any way.
