Global Chiropractic - Plano/Frisco

In the center of your body is your spinal column, made of many small interlocking bones that protect your spine. In this same region are nerves that travel from your spine around your entire body, all the way to the ends of your fingers and toes.

Chiropractors are experienced in non-invasive techniques that realign the spine when it becomes misaligned. This can resolve a wide variety of health problems, like chronic back pain, headaches, and pains in the arms and legs. A chiropractic treatment plan can provide immediate relief, as well as a long-term solution to prevent recurring problems.

While you may know that chiropractors help with back pain, you may be unfamiliar with the many ways a chiropractor can help you achieve optimal health.

Your First Visit to Our Office

Brief Paperwork

Please print out and fill out the paperwork prior to your appointment. If you cannot print it out prior to the appointment, NO STRESS!!! Just come into the office slightly early and fill it out in there. Please know that after the paperwork is filled out a typical new patient appointment takes approximately 45 minutes.

History and Examination

On your first visit, Dr. Shelton will sit down with you for a consultation. She will discuss your history and current health to understand your concerns. We will then proceed with a thorough examination. X-rays are taken if necessary. If you have any previous MRIs, CTs, or X-rays please bring them to your visit along with the reports of each.


Life happens and if you are running late please just give us a call so that we may accommodate you! - We strive to be efficient and respectful of your time.

Insurance and Payment Plans

Let's face it Health Insurance is actually SICK Insurance. We don't want to use it unless we have to.....

At Global Chiropractic - Plano/Frisco, we want to treat you not your insurance. That's why we make care affordable for you and your family.

We gladly accept most health insurance. Individuals in need of our services that do not have "health" (it's really sick insurance) insurance and who are worried about the high costs charged by many other clinics need not worry. We have flexible payment plans allowing access to high-quality care for you and your family.

What does it mean to be in-network with insurance vs. out-of-network? Well, to be in-network the doctor has agreed to a contract with that certain insurance company and must follow the rules set forth by their contract. Out-of-network means the Doctor's office does not have a standing contract and thereby is not restricted by the insurance company's guidelines for care.

We are in-network with a few insurance companies, but if you don't see us on your "Provider List" don't worry!!! Just call us and let us verify your insurance for you!! NO STRESS!

Here are some of the insurances we accept. If you don't see yours, just give us a call!

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Beech Street
  • Cigna PPO
  • First Health
  • Fortis

No, there are many conditions that Chiropractic can help you with, such as headaches, tennis elbow, knee pain, decreasing stress, the list goes on and on...

2. Does everyone get treated the same way?

Well, if you are talking about being treated respectfully and being greeted by the nicest staff (Jessica and Shelby) in the world then yes, everyone does get treated the same way!

Yes. We do operate on an appointment basis. We do our very best to run our office on time and therefore we plan our day accordingly. However, things may happen from time to time and if you are running late or need to reschedule, just call us. We try to be as accommodating as possible.

4. I am not sure my insurance pays for Chiropractic, what should I do?

DO NOT STRESS. We can do several things, upon your arrival we can call and verify your insurance benefits for you, and if you don't have coverage or do not have very good Chiropractic coverage then we can go over different payments options with you.

What our Families Have to Say

Chiropractic Plano TX Patient Testimonial

"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution."

Maya Angelou

"While other professions are concerned with changing the environment to suit the weakened body, chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment."
