Frequently Asked Questions

1. When Should I Visit a Chiropractor?

You should visit a chiropractor when you have a back injury, a neck injury, or have issues with your joints.

You can benefit from getting your spine checked, whether you have pain or not. Do you see a dentist every six months? Why? To check for cavities, you can't feel! Why wait until your spine hurts? Get checked today. Call us at (650) 326-7000 to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

Pain is the reason people initially go to the chiropractor. Chiropractic adjustments can help you function and feel better. Those who have experienced these adjustments report having less pain, greater freedom of movement, better sleeping patterns, and an improved sense of well-being. Daily stress like work, commuting, emotional stress, and having no time for your needs can all be hard on the body. Many people go to the chiropractor to help maintain an optimal state of health. How often they go generally depends on lifestyle factors, like exercise, stress reduction, and nutrition.

At Stanford Chiropractic Center, we correct and stabilize your spinal condition and help you feel better faster. Once you finish your initial treatments, it is up to you to continue care or not.

Most insurance companies acknowledge that chiropractic care is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. Insurance coverage can significantly vary, and we recommend contacting your insurance company to discuss your benefits for chiropractic care. Please contact us about the insurances we accept; our staff will do their best to assist you with your insurance coverage.

Lakai M's 5 star Google review for neck and back pain

I was referred by my family to see Dr. Carr about my neck and back pain. Dr.Carr and the staff have been a blessing in my life. I’ve been going to get corrected for almost 2 months. After my first appointment, I’m migraine free and breathing pain free. I almost forgot how it felt to do daily things without having pain. The staff is so welcoming and personable, I felt comfort that I was going to be taken care here. My journey is just beginning but I am excited to see how my life will change without pain limiting me! Thank you Dr. Carr and I highly recommend their services!!!!

Emiliana M.'s 5 star Yelp review for absolutely professional

This is an oasis for my spine. I refer friends here all the time. Why? OMG, Gavin rocks and his staff is absolutely professional, knowledgeable and practically family. When I found them about 10 years ago, I was a stress monkey and my spine wasn't having it. My lower back was so bad I would periodically fall to my knees because of lower back spasms. I had to have my cane nearby just in case. Gavin reset my spine over a series of appointments. One day I walked in using my cane. I walked out carrying my cane. Well, 10 years and two car accidents later, I'm back and I'm looking forward to getting my spine reset. Stay tuned

Stephanie E's 5 star Google review for back therepy

I truly believe Dr. Carr can fix anything! After years of gracelessness and athletic competition/training, my back, neck, hips, and knees were a mess. I went to physical therapists and got nothing from it so a chiropractor was my last ditch effort toward becoming normal again. I'm so glad I did - I'm back to doing all of my favorite sports and activities again in relatively short time. And Dr. Carr's team members everything positive and efficient. It's not just Dr. Carr - it's the entire team that makes this practice the best. They love what they do and I know you will appreciate them as much as I do!

Nancy T's 5 star Facebook review for weekly chiro adjustments

I think I may be one of Dr. Carr's first patients from almost 30 years ago....still seeing him weekly for adjustments that keep this "now a grandma" going! Everyone is always warm and welcoming and have been forever! Family run, family oriented, and family friendly. Love them!
