In this office, we perform several different exams to help us uncover the issues behind your symptoms. We will also see how much movement you are able to do and what types of movements make the symptoms worse. Our exams are designed to be as easy and pain-free as possible. We will examine the area for swelling, "knots" and lack of movement. Based upon what the doctor is finding, x-rays might be recommend
When your exam is completed, you will be given your first treatment. We will want to see you again to go over our findings. You will make this appointment on your way out.
Holistic Solutions patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
Second Visit (Chiropractic)
Your second visit is crucial. This is when we will go over our findings in depth. We will start the visit by explaining some key ideas of what Chiropractic is. Bring questions with you! This is great time to ask. After you have a basic idea of what chiropractic can do for you, we will begin your personalized report.
We will review all your exams with you including any x-rays that may have been taken. A customized treatment plan will be created and explained. We will explain our financial policies. If this is your first experience with chiropractic treatment, we will explain everything we will be doing and what to expect as we go throughout the treatment. There are many treatment options. We will decide which technique is best suited for you. If at any time, you are uncomfortable, please let us know, we can alter what we are doing.
Subsequent Visits (Chiropractic)
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
Typically, subsequent visits are very short. We do this to allow you to be able to come in without disturbing your daily schedule. There is rarely a wait to be seen. You will be asked if there has been a change in your condition. Is it improving? In what ways? You will be treated, or if necessary, we will do a short exam. When you are done, you will make arrangements for your next appointment. On most occasions, you will be in the office less than 20 minutes.
Once a month you will have an appointment that will be slightly longer. This is your re-exam appointment. At this time, we will be reviewing how your visits have been going and how your health has been improving. We will do an exam as well.
After this re-exam you will be adjusted. The findings of this re-exam will be gone over at your next appointment.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.
We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
We try to make your first visit at our office as comforting and easy as possible. When you walk in our door, you will be greeted with a smile. You will be given some paperwork to fill out. This paperwork gives us an idea of what you are experiencing and what your general state of health is like.
In order to pinpoint what is going on, the doctor will spend some time talking to you about your pain. We will want to know things like how long have you had it, and how it began. We will also have you describe what it feels like.
