Unfortunately we are not in any HMO networks. We do offer time of service cash discounts.
An HSA is a Health Saving Account. A FSA is a Flexible Medical Account. A HSA is when you allocate a certain amount of money each month from your paycheck into a special Health Saving Account which can be used at West Coast Sports & Fitness Center. An FSA is an allocated amount of money you receive annually by your employer. West Coast Sports and Fitness Center can access these accounts since we have a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist available.
Check with your Human Resources Dept. to see if you are enrolled for these accounts. They should be able to help you find out first if you are enrolled and if so how much you have available. Be sure the HSA/FSA guidelines in your account include Chiropractor and/or Acupuncture.
Per our cancellation policy you must cancel your session at least 3 hours from the time it is scheduled. Failure to do so will forfeit your session.

We typically start our youth training at age 6. Although some kids when mentally ready can start sooner.
Boot Camps are all level, all age appropriate. Our staff focuses on total body muscle confusion. Our trainers will definitely challenge you, however we encourage our clients to go at their own pace. So beginners are welcome.
Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function. DCs also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
A referral is usually not needed to see a doctor of chiropractic (DC); however, your health plan may have specific referral requirements. You may want to contact your employer’s human resources department—or the insurance plan directly—to find out if there are any referral requirements. Most plans allow you to just call and schedule an appointment with a DC.
Massages are 50 minutes of actual massage time on the table. However, the massage session is scheduled for 60 minutes to allow 5 minutes before the massage begins and 5 minutes after the massage ends.
Acupuncture is one of the modalities of Oriental medicine. Although what is called acupuncture in the West comprises several different therapies (such as moxibustion and cupping), mostly it consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown to be effective in the treatment of health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of 2,000 years, and there are more than 1,000 known acupoints.
The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture's effectiveness for over 40 common disorders, such as:
- Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders
- Toothaches, earaches, sinusitis, rhinitis, laryngitis
- Respiratory Disorders
- Colds and flus, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, emphysema
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Food allergies, nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, ulcers, colitis
- Circulatory Disorders
- Hypertension, high cholesterol, arteriosclerosis, angina pectoris
- Urogenital Disorders
- Cystitis, stress incontinence, neurogenic bladder, prostatitis, prostatic hypertrophy
- Gynecological Disorders
- Menstrual irregularity, endometriosis, PMS, infertility, menopausal syndrome
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, TMJ, sciatica, low back pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia
- Psychoemotional and Neurological Disorders
- Depression, anxiety, insomnia, headache, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, intercostal neuralgia, post-stroke paralysis, dizziness, tinnitus
In addition, acupuncture has been used for centuries throughout Asia to treat hundreds of other problems.
When performed by a competently trained, licensed professional, acupuncture is extremely safe. All acupuncturists today use individually packaged, sterile, disposable needles. So there is virtually no chance of infection or contagion.
Acupuncture needles are typically not much thicker than a strand of hair, and their insertion is practically painless. It is nothing like receiving an ordinary injection. In some cases, you will not know the needles are in place. Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing, and many fall asleep during treatment.
If you received acupuncture services, we will bill under: Eric Nilsen Chiropractic. Roland Steele is our acupuncturist.

No, the patient responsibility portion is the amount covered by insurance, not a bill. WCSFCenter does not send bills, we will discuss directly with any patient an amount due if necessary. Which by the way, is very rare.
Unfortunately, no! Some insurance policies send the doctor reimbursement check directly to the patient. It is the patient's responsibility to give WCSFCenter administration the issued check amount. The check can be given as is or can be cashed then written out to the appropriate doctors company name. You can also pay the practice via credit card the exact check amount. You can then cash the check and keep the money thereafter.
Although we would love to accommodate our patients and clients. Unfortunately, we do not have enough space to offer the public an open gym. Exercise is only offered through appointments with Personal trainers for semi private training or to participate in group classes. Insurance clients also have access to Exercise Therapy with a Trainer once given a proper diagnosis by one of our doctors.
