Absolutely! We provide both chiropractic and functional services for children of all ages. We treat a child’s case just as importantly and individually as an adult case.
Parents seek corrective chiropractic care for their babies and children to maintain and prevent conditions from occurring. If a condition has already developed, specific spinal correction techniques can be utilized to prevent further deterioration and/or reverse chronic, long-term health conditions naturally.
For children, we most often serve them functionally for food allergies or more chronic health issues. Once we can determine the root cause of their health issue, we can customize an action plan to remove it and watch their resilient body repair itself naturally!
The ability to pop and crack is a sign that you spine is weak, unstable and at risk for developing additional health conditions over time. Specific spinal adjustments and the process of spinal correction will strengthen and stabilize spinal segments, preventing spinal deterioration.

Surgeries commonly add stress and promote nearby tissues deterioration that should be managed proactively.

Dr. Schwartz provide cutting-edge corrective chiropractic care, which is mainly performed with hands-on techniques. He also utilizes gentle techniques using tools such as Arthrostim and Activator devices. Dr. Schwartz has advanced training in scoliosis correction through CLEAR Institute, and may recommend therapies and modalities in-office to prepare your body for the corrective adjustment.
This depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, how long you have had it, how much time, energy and attention you are willing to devote to treatment, and how well your body responds to treatment. In general, health programs for chronic illness last between three and six months, but most patients start seeing improvement within the first month. Patients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is completed.
The costs vary depending on the lab test recommended. Our prices are much lower than other companies’ because we do not up-charge for any of our tests. You only pay the base cost directly to us.
We do need an initial appointment first so that we can get a detailed health history and get to know you (we cannot legally run tests on people who are not our patients) but also we can customize the test panels that would be the most beneficial for you as there are a few different variations available. Depending on your specific health concerns, the panels that are best for you may be different than those for other patients.
Our practice does not accept any form of medical insurance or Medicaid. Medicare is only applicable to chiropractic services. However, we provide you with an itemized bill with traditional ICD-10 codes and CPT codes so that you may easily file a claim with your insurance company yourself. Your insurance company would then reimburse you directly.
To simplify the process, we recommend calling your insurance company to find out about what your specific plan will cover. We’re more than happy to provide insurance codes. Since Dr. Schwartz is a Doctor of Chiropractic, we find that most patients are reimbursed for a portion of their visits.
Our services are however fully covered under most flexible spending and health savings plans. Our testing is often reimbursable as well. You can call your insurance carrier directly to find out the details of your plan.
The best way to determine whether you will be a good fit is to schedule an initial pre-consultation phone call. This gives Dr. Schwartz an opportunity to learn more about your goals and needs, and gives you the chance to ask any questions you might have. There’s no obligation and no cost for the 15 minute phone call. Schedule here
We do not accept every patient. We have a very specific application process to determine if you would be a good candidate for care at Triad Health Center. The application process starts with setting up an initial consultation.
Initial Chiropractic Examination: $60
Initial Nutrition Assessment: $100
Initial Functional Medicine Consultation: $497
If you are accepted into the program, price depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of supplements, herbs and other therapies needed during treatment, and the number of consultations you receive.
Because all of our care plans and protocols are completely customized on an individual basis, the prices range varies person to person. The first step is an initial consultation focusing on the biggest health complaints you want our help with.
Each initial consultation is between 1-2 hours with either Dr. Schwartz or Elise. Following your initial consultation, we will be able to present our findings, care recommendations and price moving forward.
There is a huge difference in the quality of supplements on the market today. Drug store brands are normally the cheapest, and when it comes to nutritional supplements, unfortunately you get what you pay for. Drug store brands use poor quality man-made materials, thus creating a subpar product. Furthermore, many of these brands contain fillers, preservatives and even artificial colors and flavors which are detrimental to health. Health food store brands are a step up from drug store brands and usually use more natural and better quality raw materials. However because supplements are not regulated by the FDA, there is still no accountability and its hard to tell which are best from the hundreds of brands that exist.
The supplements that we use in our office are professional brands. They use the purest raw materials backed by years of research and manufacture them with the highest technology to preserve and maintain integrity and purity of their ingredients. We only want the best for you, and so we only offer truly whole food supplements and herbs. These brands go against the most stringent guidelines and come with certificates of analysis so we know exactly where the nutrients and herbs are coming from. They are typically much more potent and therefore not available in stores. Furthermore, because these brands are used by healthcare professionals, the manufacturers have a lot more accountability.
Many of our products are also custom-made for you based on your results, which enables you to take less pills but get more needed nutrients as they are combined for your convenience.
It is of course your choice on where you get your recommended supplements and we never want you to feel forced to get them through us. We are happy to evaluate any brand you may already have and help you find the best option because quality plays a huge part in the success of your protocol.
Absolutely not! Our goal is to find your deficiencies and fix them as quickly as we can. This usually requires supplementation for 3-6 months to get your levels in the correct range, but once they are there, you can maintain them with proper diet and a maintenance regimen of a good multi-vitamin if needed.
We normally do an initial consultation so that we can get a detailed health history on each individual patient and recommend the testing and protocols that would be the most beneficial for each individual. Depending on your concerns and goals, the tests that are best for you may be different than for your friend. Furthermore, a big part of our customized consultation protocol focuses on eating habits and food education so that you know which foods are best, how to combine them and time meals properly. This process guarantees the most success and the quickest results with your personalized program.
We see patients from all over the world and find phone or virtual consultations using Skype or Google+ very convenient. In fact, about 30% of our patients do their consultations virtually. When you first set up your appointment, we will email you an intake form which you can fill out and email back to us. If you are not email savvy, don’t worry, you can always send your filled out form by regular mail. As with an in-person consultation, we will set up a full hour for your initial consultation. Everything we talk about in person we can talk about over the phone and any handouts would be emailed to you in advance to follow during our call.
All initial testing is done in your home prior to our call or during. All initial testing is very easy to perform with a little guidance from us.
More advanced future testing is completed with kits which you perform in the comfort of your own home, because most need to be done at a particular time of day. The appropriate kits will be mailed to you and include everything you need to take the sample along with detailed instructions. Once samples (hair, saliva, urine) are collected, you simply mail them directly to the lab in a prepaid envelope. This makes it easier for all patients and you do not have to physically be at the office to do the tests. If a test requires a blood draw, we can direct you to a lab in your area.
If you do not live in the area, a virtual consultation can be a great way to get your health on track and you will get all the same benefits as our in-office patients. And best of all, you never have to leave your home.
