Frequently Asked Questions
Chiropractic care improves the communication of your body and nervous system, and supports your natural ability to self-heal, self-regulate, and self-organize, helping you have a fuller expression of life and unlock your potential.
Chiropractic care is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and is known to help people in a variety of health situations. Many health conditions are secondary to inefficient adaptations to stress from your environment, diet, and/or life. Chiropractic care is not a treatment for pain or any medical conditions. Your body is designed to heal and can naturally resolve secondary health conditions when your spine is healthier and your nervous system is free of interference from vertebral subluxations.
Many people receiving regular NetworkSpinal® Care in our office report:
-Feeling more relaxed
-Improved ability to handle stress
-Easier, deeper breathing
-Improved awareness of posture
-Less frequent headaches
-Better, easier movement
-Improved ability to listen to the body’s needs
-More confidence and mental clarity
We also see measurable improvement in:
-Ranges of motion
-Muscle strength and function
-Muscle tension patterns
-Spinal stress (indicated by spinal thermography)
-Nervous System Efficiency (measured with INSiGHT scanning technologies)
Anyone who is seeking better health, function, adaptability, body awareness, and/or an overall higher level of health and well-being should have their spine checked regularly for interference to their nervous system. Interference to optimal function in your nervous system is often painless, so it is recommended that everyone have their spine evaluated to ensure they are heading toward optimal health.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective at any age and supports your ability to thrive throughout every stage of life.
The form of care we provide does not involve the type of chiropractic adjustments many associate with twisting movements and the popping sound.
In NetworkSpinal Care, we apply light, gentle pressures to the spine and surrounding regions in areas, to increase your brain’s awareness of stress and tension patterns and support the natural development of two unique reorganizational waves that travel along the spine and throughout the entire nervous system. These precise pressures initiate a process where your body learns to readjust affected nerve and spinal tissues. This readjustment, or reorganization, involves breath movements increasing in the very low back, up the spine, and through the neck. This is known as the respiratory wave and is the first spinal wave developed in care. A second spinal wave develops known as the NetworkSpinal wave. Coordinated by the brain, this wave travels along the spine and through the arms and legs and central nervous system and promotes the development of new health and wellness strategies within the brain. (See the latest research below).
Here are some answers to common questions about twisting and popping most people associate with chiropractic care.
The popping sound many people associate with a spinal adjustment comes from the gases (oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide), temporarily moving out of the synovial fluid of the joint. When you “pop” or “crack” a joint, you stretch the joint capsule (ligament structure surrounding the joint). If the stretch is far enough, it creates a tiny vacuum, and the gases are rapidly released as bubbles. This is known as “cavitation.” Over a period of about 20 minutes, the released gases dissolve back into the synovial fluid. A joint does not have to cavitate for an adjustment to occur, and just because a joint has been stretched enough to create a temporary release of tension and a cavitation (popping noise), this does not mean there was a corrective adjustment that took place.
The twisting movements associated with many forms of chiropractic adjustments are part of a method of creating the stretching mentioned above. During such maneuvers, a chiropractor provides specific pressures while creating short, quick stretches to help reposition misaligned bones or mobilize restricted tissues. This approach has helped many people for many years and is generally very safe.
We work with very different strategies in our office to achieve very different objectives. Our focus is to help your body learn to improve itself and reach a higher, more efficient level of self-organization.
A vertebral subluxation is defined by the Australian Spinal Research Foundation as “a diminished state of being, comprising of a state of reduced coherence, altered biomechanical function, altered neurological function and altered adaptability.” (6)
Vertebral subluxations are a means of your body adapting to excessive stress from chemical, mental, or physical traumas. This adaptation acts as a type of short circuit to limit overactive nerve responses due to those stressors. While it is an intelligent response of your body, there are a cascade of issues that can happen because of this stress response when the body is unable to shift back to a normal, eased state.
Chiropractic care helps improve your body’s adaptive process through various methods of adjusting vertebral subluxations. However, the underlying stress that your body had to respond to (and may still be responding to) must be addressed for sustainable changes to happen. This often requires changes to lifestyle and habits that created the imbalance in your system. This is why our intake questionnaires and regular evaluations of your health, spine, and nervous system are so detailed. Your optimal well-being involves much more than improving back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
We do not work with insurance of any kind. There are no billing codes established for NetworkSpinal Care. This care is not a specific treatment for a diagnosed condition and is therefore not a billable service for your insurance (health, accident/injury, etc.), which means we cannot provide you with superbills or insurance claims for our care.
Most practice members find our care to be affordable, close to what they would pay in copays for a specialist, and we offer “no interest when paid in full” financing through CareCredit to help even the most immersive care plans fit into your budget.
One of the most common questions we receive is “Can NetworkSpinal Care help me with _____ condition?”
While this approach to care is not a specific treatment for any conditions, everything the body does to self-regulate and heal is improved by having a less stressed, and more coherent nervous system. So, NetworkSpinal Care can help anyone who is facing any health conditions, and at the same time, it’s not a “treatment” for anything. The extent to which your body is able to heal and resolve a condition has many factors, a very important one being the integrity of your nervous system, which is where we can help.

NetworkSpinal Care Plans, Financial Policy, and Cost of Care
Improving Your Spine and Nervous System is a Process
To help you optimize your health, experience extraordinary results, and claim more for yourself and others, we provide the unique service known as NetworkSpinal® Care. NetworkSpinal Care helps you develop unique and progressive strategies in your nervous system involving the development of Spinal Gateways and your signature Network Spinal Wave. This is a process that takes time. To realize the full benefits of NetworkSpinal Care requires frequent and consistent visits to develop the associated body-mind strategies. (Learn about these NetworkSpinal strategies at https://www.fortworthevolve.com/networkspinalcare)
We do not provide “once in a while” symptom relief care. This care approach does not involve diagnosing or treating conditions and is not intended to be a replacement for those services. Though many people receiving NetworkSpinal Care have experienced resolution of various symptoms, conditions, and pain, NetworkSpinal Care is not provided as a treatment for pain or any specific conditions.
Your body has its own unique timing and healing priorities that can only be discovered as you move forward in this (or any other) form of care. Instead of offering a care plan to treat specific symptoms or trying to guess exactly how long your body will take to create the unique strategies associated with NetworkSpinal Care, we offer plans for care with a focus of helping you achieve the greatest results possible during the time we work together. We will create and track goals for your care together, and if additional care approaches are needed to help you achieve them, we will gladly refer you to a trusted practitioner to support your specific needs.
At Evolve Chiropractic, NetworkSpinal Care begins with an Initial Immersion into Life Care complete with a course of 2-3 NetworkSpinal Entrainments (care sessions) per week, monthly evaluations with spinal scanning and heart rate variability technologies, manual muscle testing, digital posture analysis, palpation, and self-assessment surveys to create measurable outcomes and goals.
Research in NetworkSpinal Care has yet to establish a ceiling to the benefits of this unique form of care. The more often you receive care, the more momentum for change your body creates. The longer you receive care, the more your nervous system learns to adapt with these progressive strategies. We encourage practice members to include NetworkSpinal as a regular part of their healthy lifestyle.
With consistent practice of skills and activities of any kind, it takes around 6 months for the nervous system to develop sustainable neuroplastic changes*. For this reason, we recommend beginning with 6 months of care for long-lasting and profound results. Immersion Care Plans are available as 3- and 6-month plans. After your initial 6 months of care, we offer Life Care Plans to support you in creating and claiming the life of your dreams.
*Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning.

Informed Consent for Care at Evolve Chiropractic
We encourage and support a shared decision-making process between us regarding your health needs. As a part of that process you have a right to be informed about the condition of your health and the recommended care to be provided to you so that you can make the decision whether to undergo such care with full knowledge of the known risks and intended benefits. This information is intended to make you better informed so you can knowledgably give or withhold your consent.
At Evolve Chiropractic, we provide a specific form of spinal care known as NetworkSpinal ®. NetworkSpinal Care is an evidence-based approach to wellness and body awareness. This approach is only taught to chiropractors and includes a unique application in spinal care.
Many practice members who have been under NetworkSpinal Care in our office have reported significant changes in their lives. Many have reported strong emotional experiences that have been associated with discovering and releasing long standing stress and tension in their bodies and lives. There is no guarantee that you will have these experiences though it is not recommended that you begin this form of care if you are not open to experiencing your body in a new way and improving your lifestyle.
I hereby request and consent to receiving spinal care, including wellness education in this office by Jason Dixon, DC, who provides NetworkSpinal (NS) Care, a low force approach which has unique outcomes and clinical results. Dr. Jason chooses to practice NS, as he is professionally and personally confident regarding the safety and effectiveness of this form of care.
This office provides care in accordance with the Council on Chiropractic Practice Guidelines and the Canon of Ethics of the Association for NetworkSpinal Care. Dr. Jason has been trained in traditional chiropractic care and is continuously training in the latest procedures of NetworkSpinal Care.
The purpose of this consent form is to help me better understand the nature of the services offered in this office and our mutual responsibilities. This fosters a more effective relationship and avoids misunderstandings regarding expectations. Having well understood expectations is anticipated to promote a greater sense of safety and healing.
NS Care does not attempt to manually, or by instrument, manipulate spinal fixations structurally (often associated with a snapping or popping sound), nor does it directly treat painful areas of the spine and body. Instead, by enhancing my body’s awareness of itself and specifically my spine, I understand I can develop new strategies for healing, adapting to stress, and experiencing wellness. These strategies promote spontaneous self-correction and self-regulation of spinal tension patterns and supports my natural ability to heal.
NS Care consists of gentle touch contacts along the neck and back to achieve greater communication between the brain and body, and new sensory and motor strategies. NS Care adopts an approach associated with somatic (body/spinal awareness) training. There is a body of research characterizing NS Care and documenting its unique and significant wellness benefits. I understand I may obtain copies of published research articles and/or abstracts in this office. I can learn more about this process of care at https://www.fortworthevolve.com/networkspinalcare. I can also learn more about NetworkSpinal care from the developer of the care at https://epienergetics.com/welcome-networkspinal
I am aware that I will be receiving gentle touch NetworkSpinal adjustments, also called Entrainments. Assessments of my progress will include monitoring of my spine and body awareness, responsiveness to inner rhythms, tension, and ease patterns. At regular intervals, following commencement of care, reassessments will be performed. These will include my personal perception of my wellness and my awareness of my spine and body-mind changes. Dr. Jason will report to me the improvement in my spinal and nervous system integrity and my ability to self-regulate tension and to re-organize my spine through his observations and objective instrumentation.
NS Care is advanced through a series of levels of care. Each Level of Care involves the development of new and unique spontaneous spinal wave motions, other body movements, and oscillations. These waves, which are suggested to be associated with the greater spinal stability, the redistribution of energy, and the transfer of internal information are also associated with greater wellness, improved quality of life, and increased life enjoyment.
I also understand that, in addition to NS Care and wellness education, Dr. Jason may perform additional examinations or assessments and offer health/spinal care or advice that is consistent with my individual needs.
It has been explained to my satisfaction, and I understand that the care offered at Evolve Chiropractic is not a form of, or replacement for, the diagnosis or treatment of any symptom, disease, or malady. Instead, it is a form of wellness care and self-education that empowers my connection with my body-mind and develops new strategies for spinal and nervous system integrity and wellness. It develops new capacities in my body for the identification of, spontaneous release of, and redirection of tension, including those that are unique to NS Care.
It is common for people receiving NS Care to breathe more deeply and more fully, engaging the spine with their respiration, to spontaneously adapt postures that release or redistribute tension, to bust stress, and to experience more of their inner life energy.
I understand it is common to experience a wider range of motion and emotion during care. It is common, as care progresses, to find new options in the body and in life, which often lead to significant life changes.
This form of care is NOT suggested for those individuals who wish to remove a symptom or condition without the occurrence of other fundamental changes in their lives. The care at Evolve Chiropractic often promotes significant changes in health choices, lifestyle, experience of the body-mind, emotion, and consciousness.
Rather than attempting to simply return me to my previous state minus a symptom, Dr. Jason instead chooses to help me achieve new levels of wellness and life potential that I may never have had before.
