- Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Sheild (BCBS)

We currently do not accept Kentucky Medicaid.
We also offer affordable care for those without health insurance.
Does the adjustment hurt?
Generally it does not hurt; however, in some cases it can be temporarily uncomfortable. If you have concerns, please discuss them with Dr. Hannegan at your first visit.
Is chiropractic safe for children?
Yes, in fact children often respond much faster than adults. Sometimes chiropractic can even help with conditions such as ear infections and colic.
Can chiropractic treat a disc herniation or buldging disc?
Chiropractic care has been shown to be very effective in treating herniated and buldging discs in the neck and back. We also have spinal decompression or mechanical traction that can be used to treat these conditions.
Why do I have to come more than once for treatment?
More than one treatment is typically required because the tissues surrounding the spine have adjusted to the dysfunction in the spine and are not used to the movement introduced by the adjustment. Also, it takes some time to correct improper movement patterns. You may feel better after the first visit, but it takes several adjustments for the tissues to adapt to proper spinal fuction again. Everyone is different, and Dr. Hannegan creates an individual treatment plan specilialized to treat you and the issues you are experiencing.
Do I need to wear specific clothing?
We recommend you wear clothing that you will be comfortable moving around in. Our exam requires unrestricted movement of the whole body to correctly assess your condition. We may require access to the skin over the injured area as well.
How long is the first visit?
Your first visit at Performane Chiropractic will take 45-60 minutes for the full exam and any necessary treatment.
How long is treatment going to take?
While each person and condition are different, most conditions start to respond within 3-4 visits. The more severe and the longer a condition has been around, the longer it takes to heal and correct.
