Headaches come in a variety of forms but the kind of headache that people usually seek treatment for is usually severe.  Although headaches have a variety of causes many headaches are in part muscular in origin. That’s why headache neurologists often use Botox injections to break up muscle spasms in the neck and upper back.

Chiropractic techniques are likewise effective for managing the muscular and spine related origins of headache.  If you’ve been suffering from chronic or recurrent headaches, especially when the pain seems to begin in the back of the neck, you should definitely try a course of treatment.

Fees & Insurance


Will you file a claim with my insurance company or is that my responsibility?

Yes. If we are under contract with your insurance company, we will collect the co-payment at the time of your visit and submit the claim for you. 


What are the rates if you are out of network with my insurance plan?

If we do not currently participate in your health insurance plan and you have out of network
benefits we will file a claim directly with your insurance company.  Please call the office to
find out what your ‘co-pay’ would be.


We never perform any service without discussing it, and its cost with you beforehand, and receiving your approval. We are very respectful around finances, and no one ever receives a bill from “out of nowhere” from us!

Give a call to discuss your specific health concerns with Dr. Kowal and he’ll be able to clarify what finances, evaluative services and/or care would look like for you personally.
