Your Office Tour

Fort Collins Elevate Chiropractic officeWe’ll briefly show you around our facility (we are so very proud of it), so that you can see how we operate in an efficient manner to make your appointments quick and easy. We also want you to know where things are and feel comfortable in our space. We know that you’re busy and realize the importance of making chiropractic care as stream-lined as possible for you

The Insurance Benefits Check

It is of utmost importance to us to make care affordable and convenient for you, so while you’re taking a look around, we’ll get starting on finding out how much your insurance covers chiropractic care, so you will know up front your portion of any services before they are provided, and so that we can fully discuss the financial options of your care with you.

The Chiropractic Assessment

Our thorough assessment, using the most state-of-the-art  technology in the field and spanning several important aspects of diagnostic techniques, will evaluate the location and severity of stress and nerve interference in your body. Our multi-phase assessment allows us to fully understand the state of your health.

Don’t worry, our procedures are gentle and totally non-invasive! 

To understand the current function of your central nervous system, we use a state-of-the-art technology that is literally “space age” (This spinal care technology developed for U.S. astronauts is certified by The Space Foundation). Our thermal scan is based on temperature readings from both sides of your spine and can show us disturbances to your nervous system due to physical stresses and tension on the spinal cord and nerves. These conditions in your autonomic nervous system, which controls all organs, glands and systems in the body, can be the root cause or major contributing factors to many health concerns.

At Elevate Chiropractic, we’re proud of our understanding of various methods to measure the state of your health. One measurement that we use is called Heart Rate Variability (HRV).

HRV is currently the gold standard in measuring the body’s ability to adapt to stressors, and is considered the best measure of Wellness potential. While it’s gaining traction in the world of Functional Medicine, Integrative Health, and in many hospitals incorporating wellness checks, it’s still largely ignored by most chiropractors. We know the value of it and make HRV part of your Chiropractic Assessment. We measure your Heart Rate Variability and factor your score into our assessment. It lets us look at the balance that exists between your Sympathetic (fight or flight) and Parasympathetic (rest, digest and heal) portions of your Autonomic Nervous System. Balance is vital to your health, and the body’s ability to switch (in a heartbeat) between systems is crucial to overall health, optimal function, and the body’s ability to respond appropriately to stress. For more on HRV, click here. We can use it to gauge your level of chronic stress and the current capability of your body for healing.

And, of course, we also get “hands-on” and use our expert experience and extensive training to perform static and motion palpation of your spine and joints.

This means that we use our hands to feel what’s going on with you, and specifically assess any problem areas within the spinal structure itself. In static palpitation, you keep your body still while we feel your spine and tissues to discover any problematic issues. We can actually feel problems such as areas of inflammation and pain. With motion palpation, we have you bend or flex a joint while we feel what’s going on with our hand

Full Explanation Of Results

To complete your assessment, we will explain the initial results of your scans and report. Please bring up any questions that you may have. We always say that your assessment is an interactive experience!

During this time you’ll have the opportunity to ask plenty of questions and learn more about your health, and it how may be improved by chiropractic care. No matter what, you will leave with validating information about what we’ve found, WHY you are feeling and experiencing what you are, and we will provide next action steps in order to start getting the improvements you desire!

The Chiropractic Postural X-Ray (If needed)

Dr. Dan looking at a patient's x-raysWhile they are not always necessary, we may recommend having specific chiropractic postural x-rays taken. This will be indicated by our examination, and details of your health history. Conveniently located in our office, our digital state of the art x-ray setup is simple, safe, and takes  only a few minutes to complete. Please note that x-rays require a separate charge, which will depend on your insurance) benefits check (which will be finished by this point), non-insurance or discount programs. This will clearly be communicated to you before any services are performed.

Your Full Doctor’s Report Of Findings

Dr. Dan showing a patient their assessment findingsAfter your chiropractic assessment, you will be scheduled for your Orientation and Doctor’s Report Of Findings. This is an important follow-up visit that occurs after our doctor and team fully review the findings from your Chiropractic Assessment.

“It’s not Cheers, but everybody knows your name, you could not ask for a better staff. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and healing. I’m not a fan of the whack and crack. Dr Dan has a much gentler approach to healing that is designed to last and isn’t scary or painful.”

Stephanie O. – 5 Stars

“I have been coming to Elevate for over 2 years now. I suffered from extreme middle back pain, hip and knee pain to the point i thought i was going to need to retire from my hair stylist career. I told myself i would commit to a full year of treatment and well im still going and feeling great. Recommended 100%”

Chey C. – 5 Stars

“I highly recommend Elevate Chiropractic!! The staff is beyond amazing and super friendly! They make you feel welcomed from the very first visit! I’m very happy I found Elevate and am looking forward to returning week after week, for years to come.”

Tasha E. – 5 Stars

“My son has been seeing Dr. Dan and Dr. Andres for a couple of months now and we have seen a significant shift in his physical well-being, as well as his mental and emotional states. My son is challenged with certain processing disorders…since working with Elevate Chiropractic he has been able to better handle the stimuli of his classroom, as well as bring up his grades and retain information in his short term memory longer. His physical complaints are all but gone too, and I have seen a visible shift in the alignment of his spine. My son LOVES getting his adjustments and is always excited when it is chiro day, lol. The staff is beyond fabulous and you can feel that everyone there is dedicated to the health and happiness of each patient. Everyone knew our names by the second visit and easily remembers the little details of our treatment plan, and lives in general…making us feel invested in, not only as patients, but as people. We never feel rushed and the Doctors do an excellent job of taking their time, answering questions, and following up. Planning on getting my whole family into their wonderful and caring practice. Thanks so much everybody, keep doing what you do!”

Handiest – 5 Stars

“These people are so wonderful to be around. They really believe in helping people live their lives fully without the issues that plague us all. Personally, I have had profound changes occur in my body and mind. They don’t promise direct cures but they do put your body in position for such. I used to have hyperactive thyroidism and now its normal! I am off my medications for that and other things. You gotta get in on this! No regrets here, for sure!”

Jackie N. – 5 Stars

“I’ve been a practice member since 2016. Before starting care I would have debilitating muscle spasms in my back, due to degenerate discs. Other then having major surgery, I would have to take muscle relaxers every time they acted up. Becoming a practice member is the best thing I’ve done for my health! I have not had one muscle spasm since being under care with Elevate Chiropractic. In addition, the amazing team who sincerely care about your well being!”

Irene R. – 5 Stars

“I have been consistent in attending weekly for 9 months now, and the difference is HUGE! I thought (or got used to) living with lower back pain was normal for my age; but I was wrong. I have seen a great improvement in my mobility, energy levels, and allergies. I originally came in for a concerning throbbing head sensation, but that and many other ailments are gone now. Thank you! Another benefit is that all the staff are kind and treat you like family.”

A. S. – 5 Stars

“I had a really sore neck and sore lower back and these guys have helped me so much! I feel great, I have full range of motion again in my neck, and when I wake up in the morning, I feel good! I wondered if it was time to get a new mattress, but it turns out, I just needed some good re-alignment! Thank you guys!”

Kati D. – 5 Stars

“Friendly, efficient, and genuinely care about YOU. Every time I visit, I am welcomed with a smile, great client interactions, and I leave with a smile on my face! The doctors are fantastic at explaining the science of chiropractic and truly want you to get better.”

Tina G. – 5 Stars

“The 1st time I entered the Elevate Chiropractic office it was so welcoming and homey it was not like a normal or usual Chiropractic office which I loved and then meeting the staff was even more welcoming they all are so nice. They explained everything that they were going to do and went over my x-rays and scan. They explained the next steps of how they were going to help me get better, I wasn’t a lost cause, they were so positive and they brought my spirits up! Genesis, Amy1 & Amy2 and Dr Andres attended to me that 1st day and continue to do so, they are so friendly, caring and considerate that they make me feel as if I’m part of they’re family! After my 2nd adjustment I was feeling better! I would definitely recommend Elevate Chiropractic to all my friends, family and everyone else who is having any kind of body pain, whether it’s back, shoulders, knees, legs, ankles, joint, muscle spasms, headaches, etc. They even treat infants and children! Come in as a walk in to check it out or even better, call and make an appt. I promise you won’t regret it!”

Theresa M. – 5 Stars

“At first I was concerned that this would not work but I am happy to say that Elevate Chiropractic has helped me so much with my headaches and back pain. I would recommend.”

Brooke J. – 5 Stars

“Absolutely the best chiropractic care around. I’ve been to several over the years and won’t get treated anywhere else now.
Dr. Dan has helped our entire family, though most dramatically our 1 year old who struggled with digestive issues (despite being under chiropractic care for most of his little life!) If you have any health concerns, I cannot recommend elevate enough. From their initial in depth patient intake, their state of the art scanning technology, the amazing staff, the incredible skill and care that Dr. Dan applies to every adjustment, and their reasonable pricing, there simply isn’t better care out there.”
