What to Expect
Initial Examination and Treatment
Your initial consultation will be about an hour long. This will include both examination and treatment.
When your evaluations are complete, you and your provider will decide together which treatments and therapies best address your condition and fit into your lifestyle. These may include chiropractic treatments, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, Pilates, and functional rehabilitation. Your plan can be altered as you see fit, so feel free to bring your questions and concerns to our wellness team at any time.
We believe that creating optimal wellness is an ongoing lifestyle commitment that incorporates several components in addition to chiropractic care. These include a nutritious diet, proper exercise, and a positive emotional state all of which become increasingly easier to maintain as your health improves.
At first, you may have specific temporary instructions to follow regarding your home care such as applying heat or cold, and avoiding certain types of movement or activities until your body heals. Your doctor may also give you exercises or stretches to practice at home, which can become part of a regular routine.
You will quickly discover that being healthy feels great and makes adapting new ways of living a fun and rewarding path.
What Can I Expect from My Visit?
Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition, and goals. Your first actual treatment will consist of thorough health history, orthopedic tests to determine the cause of your discomfort, and treatment. First visits usually last about an hour. Subsequent visits typically last half an hour and will focus on getting you out of pain and back to normal function as quickly as possible using proven techniques. No unnecessary long-term treatment plans, unnecessary X-rays or tests, fancy gizmos, crystals, magic wands, or “wooo-wooo” medicine will be used, just reliable manual-therapy based on biomechanics and neuroanatomy.
Adjustments typically do not hurt, although they may cause some tenderness to the area for a day or two after, similar to what you might feel after working out for the first time in a while. This soreness is caused by the breaking up of adhesion's in the soft tissue, and improved motion in the joints, as well as the muscles, adjusting to the new movement. This soreness is usually very mild and should only last a day or two.
