We understand that arriving at a doctor's office for the first time can be nerve-racking. If you've never experienced chiropractic care before, you may not know what to expect when you come to our Lincoln chiropractic office for the first time. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces and names, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That's why at Ascend Chiropractic our aim is to remove any unnecessary stress or tension and make you feel comfortable during your visit with our chiropractor.
In this area of the website, you will be able to take care of items necessary for your visit prior to arriving. If you have any questions at any time, please don't hesitate to contact our Lincoln chiropractic office at (402) 480-6680!
As a patient at Ascend Chiropractic, your experience will be different than the traditional Chiropractic office. Yes, you will still be provided with specific Chiropractic care, but it's incorporating our soft tissue and rehabilitation techniques that make your experience unique from other offices. Ascend Chiropractic is patient-focused, which is why we schedule longer appointment visits with you and also ensure the bulk of that time is spent with your Doctor of Chiropractic. You will be provided with reasonable timetables for your treatment plans and learn simple exercises that allow you to progress outside of our office. Our goal is to not only see you pain-free but for you to ascend towards a level of optimal health.
At Ascend Chiropractic, your initial appointment visit will be scheduled for an hour to allow for proper consultation and treatment on the same day. If you come into our office in pain, you can expect to receive treatment during your first visit, as long as further imaging, exams, testing, etc., do not need to be completed after the examination.
Due to Ascend Chiropractic's individualized and integrative health care, you will be provided with shorter care plans compared to traditional offices. Each patient is different and the severity of complaints can change dramatically, but typically patient care plans will include 2-3 visits per week for 2-4 weeks. ART treatments are rarely performed on consecutive days, therefore 3 visits a week is normally our maximum frequency throughout a week's time.
At the end of your treatment plan, we will re-evaluate the initial complaint to see if the problem has been completely resolved, or if additional treatment may be needed. At this point, if the problem has been resolved and you are no longer in pain, we can change our focus from pain management to improving your overall function and working towards optimal health. This plan normally consists of 1-2 visits per month to keep on track with care and add additional exercises to continue your progress.

For all other services, including exams, manual therapy, and exercises, the patient is responsible for the full charge, as Medicare does not cover these services.
These charges may be covered by secondary insurance or the patient may choose a self-pay option. We will only recommend those services that we feel are medically necessary. Please call for details.
