What to expect
When you arrive at Spine Kansas City, we want you to feel at ease, and knowing what to expect. With the paperwork completed prior to your visit, we can get right to work and begin the journey to better health. Most insurance plans are accepted but if you have any questions in regards to coverage, we are more than happy to assist.
On your first visit, the doctor will do a brief exam to determine how we can help you. Once that has been completed and both of you are comfortable to continue, Dr. Hugunin will proceed right into treatment. If for some reason the doctor feels you are not a good candidate for Chiropractic care or feels you need a referral, one will be provided to a trusted provider. If that is the case we happily refund any fees you have paid and discuss potential future visits.
For follow-up visits, Dr. Hugunin will make sure to be conscious of your time as we know you are busy. Typically the doctor will again do a brief exam and deliver a hands-on Chiropractic adjustment to all regions of your spine as well as extremities. Dr. Hugunin believes that movement is essential so barring any contraindication, he will manipulate the spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles, and toes.
Dr. Joseph Hugunin adjusts primarily with his hands. Though at times it may be necessary to use a mechanical device it's not his preference. Dr. Hugunin has proficiency in soft tissue management and was an Active Release Techniques Provider since 2001. With over 17 years of experience, he is knowledgeable about muscle, ligament, tendon, and nerve disorders that alter the effectiveness of Chiropractic. These issues will be addressed as well as recommendations of things you can do to keep yourself in good order. We will provide you with stretches, home exercises, recommendations for orthotics if appropriate and nutritional coaching.
