The first chiropractic visit is an important event. It provides opportunity, hope and options for improvement regarding your health and wellness. Therefore, we will do our best to ensure that your interests are met and that your reason for visiting us is addressed in a meaningful way.
There will be some forms to fill in. Quite often we can email you those forms in advance of your visit and you can fill them in at home. You can then bring the filled in forms to your visit saving you time and allowing you to be thorough regarding what you’d like to share about your health problems and goals.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST CHIROPRACTIC VISIT
You’ll then meet with Dr. Dave so you can voice those same concerns and goals with him and have a conversation about what your ideal outcome would be regarding the reason you’re looking for treatment.
Dr. Dave will outline what we do at the clinic, how we do it and most importantly why we do it. He will then conduct an examination to determine how well your body is functioning as it relates to your presenting concern as well as in general with relation to your spine and nervous system.
Based on those findings, it may or may not be indicated that x-rays of your spine and/or related areas of concern be taken to further support the identification of how good or bad any changes may be and how your spine compares to ideal. This will provide a valuable blueprint for future improvements specific to your case.
On the first day, Dr. Dave may or may not provide an initial adjustment or treatment. At the very least, he will provide home care options to start the relief process. He will then review the test results and any x-rays and prepare a report of findings that will be presented on a subsequent visit.
At that second visit, the current level of health and function will be reviewed and options for improvement will be provided. What it’s going to take to get better and stay better along with the costs and other options will be discussed. You will then have the ability to find a way to make improving and maintaining your health fit into your life to obtain the results you are looking for.
There are no obligations to proceed and we often customize recommendations based on where you are now and where you’d like to be with your future health. That way, most people find an appropriate way to start working towards effective solutions for their health and long term wellness. We take your care seriously and we will partner with you to the extent that you determine is right for you.
At the end of this process, if we can help you, we will let you know. And you’ll be aware of what it’s going to take and how much it’s going to take to get those results. If we can’t help you, we’ll let you know that too. One way or another, we’ll work with you to send you in the right direction.
Our goal is to help every person we meet at the clinic to have a better experience each day with respect to their level of health and function. You live your life through your body and your nervous system. A healthy functioning body and nervous system ensure a better experience every day in life. By the time we first meet people at the clinic, that experience is not as good as they would like and we will work together to ensure that experience improves.
