Your First Visit
You are joining the growing number of people who have chosen the natural, drugless, chiropractic approach to good health. Whether you have been referred by a family member or friend or have been to medical doctors and did not obtain the results you wanted, congratulations on discovering chiropractic!
After setting up an appointment and arriving for your first visit, you’ll enjoy the friendly & knowledgeable staff as well as the beautiful & relaxing atmosphere. After completing some forms to help the doctor understand your health history, you’ll meet one of our Chiropractic Technicians. Our technician will review your health history, check the motion of your spine, check your blood pressure and perform some other basic tests. One of our doctors will then meet with you to determine if your condition is one that will typically respond from chiropractic care or requires a medical referral. Your reflexes will be checked, and other orthopedic, neurological, physical and chiropractic tests will be performed. X-rays of your spine may be taken to determine the extent of your condition and if arthritic or degenerative changes may be present. You may also be given self-help home instructions to offer you some relief.
One of the doctors will study the results and go over them with you. You will be shown your X-Rays and all of your questions will be answered, if chiropractic care will help, how long will it take, and how much will it cost. With a complete understanding of your condition, you are ready for your first chiropractic spinal adjustment. Adjustments help restore proper spinal function relieving nerve interference and allow the healing process to begin. Continued visits help retrain the soft tissues which surround and support the spine. Periodic examinations will help monitor the healing process.
