We strive to make your visits to our office as comfortable and stress free as possible. If you have children with you, there is a play area where they can occupy themselves, or, of course, they are welcome to come into the room with you
Plan for 30-45 minutes for your First Visit if you complete your forms prior to arriving. You may download our intake form right from this site. If you need to complete your health history forms at our office, please allow yourself an additional 15 minutes.
During the initial consultation and review of your health history, the Chiropractor will determine if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. The Chiropractor will ask you a few questions and will be doing a lot of listening.
If the Chiropractor doesn't think he can help you, he will tell you and do his best to recommend somebody who can. If he feels he may be able to help, and you agree, the next step is a thorough chiropractic assessment.
This will include a postural assessment, mobility, palpation and other procedures designed to help find out what is causing your problem. If indicated, a nervous system scan will be performed to provide insight into the parts of your nervous system that you don't feel
This would be the conclusion of your first visit. We are not only interested the nature of your problem, but also what caused the problem in the first place, so we will spend time analyzing the results of the assessment and your history and will formulate our recommendations to present to you at our next meeting.
The Chiropractor and you will go over a report of findings from the first visit and the recommendations in more detail and help you understand what was found and what it means to you. This is a great time to ask questions and actively become involved in your recovery. We provide three types of care (acute care, corrective care or wellness care) at our office and you choose the level of health care which best suits your wellness needs. Once your goals are clearly defined we will begin your care.
Any questions or concerns you may have regarding the adjusting procedures will be addressed prior to your adjustment. Once you are ready, you will be given your first adjustment and start you on your road to recovery
You may expect to spend 30 minutes in the office on this visit.
Because all adjustments are slightly different for everyone, one patient may not adapt the same way after one adjustment as the next patient. For example, most of our patients describe being relaxed after receiving an adjustment
First time adjusted patients may experience some tenderness or soreness due to muscles working to hold the adjustment. Fortunately, even those experiencing such first-time adjustment responses comment that their bodies do function better when a subluxation is corrected.
There are some patients who don't experience or feel any of the above adaptive responses. This does not mean that a correction has not been made.
Some people are very sensitive to their bodies and may actually feel awakening of the proper flow of life energy from the brain to all parts of the body. Remember that the greatest things are going on below the surface, beneath our conscious awareness. An adjustment will allow hundreds of bodily functions to work better!
Compared to most medical treatments, few interventions can initiate pain relief and heaing like chiropractic Adjustments can.
