With an accommodating staff and a bathroom nearby, your kids are sure to enjoy the visit as much as you do! (Did we mention the indoor pool?) :) They are also welcome to come with you into the treatment room if they like.
Is the treatment going to hurt?
Occasionally there is some discomfort associated with chiropractic treatment, but this would be the exception, not the norm. Most patients feel better right away.
Do you bill insurance?
Yes. We are contracted with Blue Cross, Moda, Idaho Physicians Network, Pacific Source, BrightPath, Medicare, Medicaid and many others.
Should I come in if I've been in a car wreck?
Absolutely. Collisions, even small ones, can cause skeletal misalignment as well as damage to joints and soft tissues. Getting a thorough chiropractic orthopedic examination after you've been in a "fender-bender" just makes sense.
What adjusting method does Dr. Rudkin use?
Dr. Rudkin uses a combination of manual and instrument assisted adjustments to suit your preference.
Will I have to keep coming back?
Most problems that present to us require a handful of visits. There are no hard sales, gimmicks, or contracts at our clinic.

We accept, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and health savings cards.
Do you accept Medicaid patients?
Yes, we accept Idaho Medicaid patients.
