We’d like to welcome you to our chiropractic office. Many individuals decide to visit us due to chronic and acute pain in their backs and extremity joints. This pain can be caused by a back or neck injury, arthritis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, herniated discs, sports and car accident injuries. The good news is that our chiropractor will take the time to listen to you, make a complete diagnosis and recommend a non-invasive treatment plan to help reduce your pain and heal its underlying cause.

1 . Your First Visit

When you first visit our chiropractic office, we ask that you arrive about 20 minutes early to give you time to fill out your initial paperwork prior to your appointment. This allows you to tell us some personal information, your medical history, allergies and the condition or injury that you’d like treated by our chiropractor. Once you complete the initial forms, your information will be entered into our patient database.

2 . Chiropractic Consultation

Your initial chiropractic consultation allows you to learn more about chiropractic care and tell our chiropractor about your condition and any previous advice or diagnoses that you’ve received prior to your visit with us. During your consultation, our chiropractor will ask questions to better understand your condition and how it limits you on a daily basis and your average levels of pain. We’ll also clarify your medical history and explain potential chiropractic treatments as well as potential outcomes. After you’ve received all the information about chiropractic care, you will be able to make an informed decision on whether or not you’d like to proceed with treatments.

4 . X Rays

X-rays or digital images may be taken in order to give our chiropractor a clearer picture of the injuries to your soft tissues and skeletal system. X-rays help diagnose conditions with your back and joints, like herniated discs, runner’s knee, carpal tunnel, and tendinitis. It also helps our chiropractor pinpoint the exact locations of your injuries so that treatment can be tailored to your specific needs.

5 . Personalized Treatment Plan

Once our chiropractor understands your condition and its severity we will explain your diagnosis and answer your questions. Next, we will create a personalized treatment plan that includes various chiropractic modalities and recommend the best treatment schedule in order to help reduce your pain and heal your injuries. At first, your treatment schedule may include multiple visits each week. However, as you begin to recover and feel better, you may need fewer treatments each week. Eventually, you’ll be given a maintenance plan to help maintain your health and wellness and help prevent future injuries and pain. The maintenance treatments also help address any concerns you may have since your last visit.

6 . Chiropractic Adjustments

Your first treatment is often a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments can be performed manually with our chiropractor’s hands, forearms and elbows or with an instrument adjusting device. Both of these methods are designed to correct subluxations in the spine and external joints, restore the function of the joints and reduce any inflammation in the soft tissues.
Chiropractic adjustments can be used to treat neck injuries, like whiplash and text neck, herniated discs, sciatica, runner’s knee, and carpal tunnel as well as sports and car accident injuries.
