FAQ

Do you have questions? We are happy to help! Below you will find answers to common questions at Bloom. Wellness for Women. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call or email us.

Once I go to a chiropractor, will I have to keep seeing them?

No. Our goal is to address your concerns through a personalized treatment plan. We aim to see improvement within a reasonable amount of time. While many patients opt into a Wellness Plan and continue care to maintain the health of their bodies, other patients choose to see us when they need us again.

Does it hurt to be adjusted?

No. An adjustment is meant to provide relief from your pain. In many cases, people feel better soon after an adjustment.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

No. Just like anything else in health care, chiropractic has its limitations. It is highly effective in treating a number of different conditions and is a great option for conservative management of pain.

Why would I get my newborn or young child adjusted?

When we treat kids, we evaluate their spine to see if there are restrictions present, which may occur as early as birth. Accordingly, these restrictions are removed, especially if they create limitations in proper range of motion. When your child gets older and more active, they are bound to fall, which can lead to injuries and reduced joint mobility. By improving these issues, we allow for their spine and musculoskeletal system to grow as healthily as possible.

Do you work with other doctors?

Yes. You do not need a referral to see us, but we are happy to work with any other practitioners to co-manage your case. If we think you can benefit from seeing someone of a different specialty, we will refer you accordingly.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes. Dr. Bugher wwill give you advice on methods to manage your pain at home. Exercises will strengthen your body and improve discomfort. If you can benefit from functional medicine, we also offer these services in the office.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes, though it depends on the surgery. Bring in your imaging from before and after your surgery and all records so that we can determine if you can be adjusted.

What does a chiropractor’s education entail?

A chiropractor earns a four-year undergraduate degree, typically in a science-based field, and then a four-year doctorate degree. Most continue on to do extensive additional training, as Dr. Bugher has. She can order X-rays, MRIs, imaging and lab tests, as needed for her patients.

What is The Bloom Method?

The Bloom Method involves cutting-edge exercise and rehabilitation protocols. These protocols are used to help prenatal and postpartum women stay active or become active for better birth outcomes.

In addition, these techniques are used to help prevent and heal injury to the core (diastasis recti) and pelvic floor (weakness, incontinence, etc.) that are common due to pregnancy and birth.

What is functional medicine?

This form of medicine uses specific tools and tests to determine the root cause of your symptoms. Based on diagnostic evaluations, we develop a customized plan based on your specific health goals. Dr. Bugher will prescribe changes to your nutrition and dietary needs, recommend supplements, and design lifestyle modifications to help achieve optimal wellness

Do you only see women at Bloom. Wellness for Women?

No. While we love to see everyone at our office, we specialize in women’s health related issues. Dr. Bugher has worked with people of all ages and genders. She also has extensive experience working with pediatric patients.
