Do You Take My Insurance?

Please call our office first at (307) 789-4957 to see if we accept your insurance. We do accept some insurances, but sometimes insurance plans don’t accept us. On your first visit we will call your insurance company and verify your chiropractic benefits so we can let you know about any deductibles or co-pays. All deductibles and co-pays are due at the time of service.

A few insurance companies who don’t accept bills through us are: TriCare, Medicare, PCIP, SelectHealth, SelectMed, and WIN health. Remember, every policy is different, so it’s a good idea to verify your own coverage information since payment is ultimately your responsibility.

Why do People go to Chiropractors?

Commonly, people only think about visiting Chiropractors when they’re experiencing pain.  This is especially true for people with back pain.  We are more than happy to see patients for spinal pain, but we treat a vast assortment of people for a variety of reasons.  Children with a variety of conditions may benefit from having a chiropractic adjustment.  After all, birth and child play in general can be rough business.  People who want to improve their overall wellness, without experiencing any pain at all, schedule maintenance visits to keep their nervous functioning at its highest level.

See our section on “Feeling vs. Function” to see why it’s important for people to see the Chiropractor for more than just pain alone.

Can You Help My Shoulder, Ankle or Knee?

As a chiropractic office we appreciate that everything in the body is connected. If your joint pain is stemming from something in your spine we would be happy to help you, but there is the possibility that Dr. Dillree will want you to see an orthopedist for your joint pain since that’s their specialty. This is especially true if you’re not experiencing any neck/back symptoms as well.

Where Are You Located?

In March of 2014 Evanston Chiropractic moved to 624 W Cheyenne Dr. Ste 3 which is still in Evanston.

We were at our old location for a number of years and the phone books have been slow to update our address, so we understand the confusion. The strip mall we’re located in now is called Frontier Square and it’s located behind Loaf ‘N Jug and Dr. Jaketta’s office, across the street from Big O Tire. A lot of you may already go to Eve’s Garden which is a supplement store located in the same strip mall as us. This new location is more convenient for most of our patients and has more space!

What if I Don’t Have Insurance?

We are happy to accept you as a patient if you don’t have insurance, or choose not to use your insurance. Evanston Chiropractic has very affordable rates to serve the needs and the insured and uninsured alike which cover your adjustment and the therapies offered here in the office. Be sure to register for our MedicFusion Patient Portal here. Please remember that payment is always required at the time of service.

Are You Accepting New Patients?

We are ALWAYS accepting new patients and would love to see you. Our new patient appointments are longer appointments because the doctor really wants to get to know you, so please be prepared for your very first appointment to be around an hour to an hour and a half in length. Because the doctor is so thorough it’s sometimes difficult to get you in the very same day you call, but we can generally schedule you within a few days of calling. To save you valuable time, please register as a new patient here.

What is Feeling vs. Function?

Feeling vs. Function

There are 3 parts of the central nervous system:

  • Motor Nerves
  • Autonomic Nerves
  • Sensory Nerves

Motor nerves control the muscles and can affect weakness, spasms, fatigue, and tightness.

Autonomic nerves control the blood vessels, organs, and glands.  They affect sinus and allergies, low energy, digestive problems, and breathing problems.

Sensory nerves communicate sensations in the body like posture, pain, and temperature.

NOTE: Sensory nerves are only a small portion of the central nervous system, so it is important to get regular adjustments to help support motor and autonomic nerve health, not just sensory nerves.  Remember, nerve tension can exist without pain.

What is Subluxation?

“Subluxation: A complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.”
– As defined by the Associate of Chiropractic Colleges.

There are a series of components of Subluxation

One is spinal kinesiopathology, which basically means bones of the spine have lost their normal motion position or restricts your ability to turn and bend. This can set in motion the other 4 components.

Neuropathophysiology, which is improper spinal function that can stretch or irritate delicate nerve tissue, the resulting nerve system dysfunction can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.

Myopathology, where muscles supporting the spine can weaken, atrophy, or become tight and go into spasm. The resulting scar tissue and changes in muscle tone require repeated spinal adjustments.

Histopathology, a rise in temperature from an increase in blood and lymph supplies resulting in swelling and inflammation. Discs can bulge, herniate, tear, or degenerate. Other soft tissues may suffer permanent damage.

Finally, pathophysiology, or bone spurs and other abnormal bony growths. Attempt to fuse malfunctioning spinal joints. Spinal decay, scar tissue and long term nerve dysfunction can cause other systems in the body to malfunction.” (source: Dr. Victor Dolan, DC, DACBSP;

What is Chiropractic?

The textbook definition is: a therapeutic system based primarily upon the interactions of the spine and nervous system, the method of treatment usually being to adjust the segments of the spinal column.  While this is technically true, we also see it as a way of life.  We feel that proper diet, supplements, exercises, and other healthy living in conjunction with spinal adjustments will allow your body to self-heal and reach its maximum potential.  This is why we offer a variety of products and foods which will help you achieve your best when you’re not physically in our office.
