A typical appointment in our office consists of a pleasant and welcoming greeting by one of our staff members. On your first visit, you will be given an opportunity to tell us your problem and I will listen intently, giving you a chance to be heard. I then will examine you with simple orthopedic tests, chiropractic tests, and look at your overall posture. Next, i will likely take an X-ray, so I can see your spinal allignment and overall spinal posture giving me the information I need to help you feel and move better overall.
The initial day, after your plan has been determined we will start helping your body heal. Our therapist will perform muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and you will relax on our hydrotherapy massage tables, all of which promote healing, increase blood flow, and reduce swelling allowing your body to naturally heal faster. You will likely get and adjustment and stretching on your first visit, as well. The adjustment is the chiropractors main ammunition for relieving your pain. In our office I believe that if the spine is moving properly, which is what the adjustment provides, your body will function and feel better. Each, visit will build on the previous, typical treatment plans are 4-6 weeks for most joint and muscle injuries.
Another large component of your plan will consist of looking at the things we do on a daily basis, sit, stand, lift, move, and how those things are the likely kulprit to your pain. Then we will give you some survival tips to improve your posture and help you survive living in a digital world.
