What is Chiropractic
According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure, primarily the spine and function, as coordinated by the nervous system, and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."
"The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health."
What to Expect
Upon arriving for your appointment, our receptionist will welcome you. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit will allow the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of his findings and answer any questions that you may have.
At the conclusion of your initial appointment, you will receive your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and / or soft tissue massage.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Our wellness team will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique; therefore, everyone requires a customized wellness plan.
