Maybe you’ve heard about chiropractic care through a friend or did some research online. Maybe you’re just tired of living in pain. If going to the chiropractor is a new experience for you, don’t worry! We’re here to help you shed your pain and get back on your feet. Your first visit to our practice will be about getting to know your chiropractor, and a chance for us to get to know you!
On your initial visit you will fill out paperwork (see Patient Forms) of your present complaints, health history and relevant information. Once presented to our receptionist a new patient orientation video will be shown, in depth questions will be asked centered around your present complaints and a orthopedic neurological exam will be performed. If x-rays are necessary, they will be taken and the doctor will discuss the results with you.
If your case is related to the misalignment of the spinal vertebrae that would result in the symptoms you are indicating then a Chiropractic adjustment (see Techniques) will be rendered. The related soft tissue will be treated with Electrical Muscle Stim and other modalities if necessary. A care plan will be given for the quickest most optimal outcome. Please allow 45 minutes to 1 hour for your first visit
A oral assessment of the previous treatments effectiveness will be taken by the doctor. Physical findings will be noted (swelling, muscle spasms, range of motion, etc.) and follow-up Chiropractic manipulation with appropriate therapies will be administered.
Changes to your Care Plan will be made if necessary and rescheduling will be made when needed.
Together, we'll come up with a plan of action specifically for you. We will talk about the type of treatment you will be receiving, any preparation necessary before beginning treatment, and when you can expect to see results. As your partner in improving your health, your chiropractor will be with you every step of the way during your treatment.
