Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Palic Method?
After years of being unsatisfied with the results of traditional chiropractic alone, Dr. Palic broadened his studies and honed his skills to create his own unique method of treatment to achieve optimal results. This combination of multiple disciplines is applied to each patient individually based on their unique needs. The Palic Method is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The Palic Method is tailored, thorough, and effective.
What is functional neurology?
Functional Neurology practices taking your list of symptoms and pinpointing where the missing piece to your recovery is via the Brain/Body Connection. What part of your neurological system isn’t doing its job and is therefore inhibiting your function and prohibiting your healing? That is what Functional Neurology figures out.
All of our methods are non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-pharmaceutical. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment for specific diagnostics and examination so that we can identify the source of your issues that then allows for a customized treatment plan to concentrate on reducing and eliminating symptoms.
What is sports medicine?
Sports Medicine and the Palic Clinic specialize in treating professional athletes, weekend warriors, and the generally active average Joe’s who are injured or want to improve performance by assessing and treating musculoskeletal structure and physiology. We start with an in-depth assessment, followed by a customized combination of dry needling, structural manipulation, electrical stimulation, active release therapy, pneumatic compression, myofascial release, muscle testing, and yes… chiropractic adjustment.

How much will this cost?

What is a neurological disorder?
Common neurological disorders include vertigo, concussions, dizziness, headaches/migraines, Parkinson’s Disease, strokes, epilepsy and seizures. Neurological disorders are medically defined as disorders that affect the brain as well as the nerves found throughout the human body and the spinal cord. Structural, biochemical, or electrical abnormalities in the brain, can result in a range of symptoms. We help patients suffering with Neurological Disorders by figuring out where their neurological system is not functioning properly, and applying specific therapies to repair those systems.
Do you take insurance?
The Palic Clinic is an out-of-network facility.
How long will my initial diagnostic exam take?
All of our patients require a New Patient diagnostic exam. For our Sports Medicine patients, please allow about an hour for that initial appointment. Your following appointments will be approximately 45 minutes. For our Functional Neurology patients, your New Patient appointment will be diagnostic only and will take up to 1.5 hours. Your following appointments are extremely customized to your treatment needs and will be discussed after diagnostics.
How many treatments will I need?
Often, progress is made upon the first appointment. Honestly, each case is different, and some patients make regular assessments and treatment part of their health care regimen on an ongoing basis.
What is the difference between dry needling and acupuncture?
Dry needling and acupuncture are techniques that involve the insertion of thin needles into the body, but they differ in their origins, principles, and applications.
Acupuncture is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, targeting specific meridians and acupuncture points to restore the flow of Qi energy. It is a holistic approach used to treat various conditions.
Dry needling, on the other hand, emerged from Western medicine and focuses on myofascial trigger points to release muscle tension and alleviate pain. It is a more localized and anatomically based technique commonly used in musculoskeletal therapy.
Additionally, practitioners and training requirements may differ between the two approaches.
