The first visit will cover all the logistics to move forward toward your first treatment. First, our office will have you fill out some minor paperwork that will provide us with general information about you and your condition. This information includes your name, age and a brief description of the pain you are experiencing. Next, you will meet with the doctor and have a face-to-face consultation to discuss your condition and medical history. Our team will perform some diagnostic tests to better understand your condition and pinpoint the pain you are experiencing. In order to be thorough and provide the safest care possible, X-rays may be recommended to further distinguish the condition. All of this information assists us in developing a treatment plan that is specific to you. We may ask you to avoid certain activities, or to do some home exercises, such as basic stretching in preparation for your first treatment.


After the initial consultation, if time allows, treatment may be provided during the same office appointment. In many cases, patient’s typically have their follow-up visit within 1 – 2 days. During this appointment, the chiropractor will proceed with treatment. Every treatment varies and is uniquely designed for the patient depending on his or her condition. You can expect the doctor to perform stretching techniques, exercises, and massages that will adjust the alignment of your body. Commonly, treatments also include dietary and nutritional counseling, and lifestyle modification counseling. You will be surprised how simple adjustments in your diet can improve how you are feeling. In addition, modifying how you exercise, sleep, and perform everyday activities can dramatically improve the discomfort you are experiencing.


While chiropractic medicine works wonders for the majority of patients, some may require or need additional therapies to help overcome their pain or injury. Other treatments, such as adjunctive therapy may also be used to reduce pain. Adjunctive therapy includes massage therapy, therapeutic stretching, and meridian therapy. For patients who show positive outcomes with chiropractic therapy alone, it is common to visit several times per month. The length and frequency of appointments vary.


If you are experiencing muscle pain, spams, back pain, or migraines, call our office today to schedule a consultation, and our doctor will be happy to discuss treatment options that are available to you.
