What Should You Expect on Your First Visit With Us?
First and foremost, we are here to help you. We want you to experience health and vitality exceeding your expectations. Everything we do at our clinic is geared toward helping you achieve maximum results. With this in mind there are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.
The examination we perform consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes "Palpation". Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations problems. Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxations.
Our examination procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. Your examination may also include some specialized equipment designed to better access your spine and nervous system.
It is important to note that this examination helps scientifically understand the subluxation processes going on in your spine. It also gives us a baseline for future tests so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is correcting and your nervous system is functioning.
X-rays may be taken depending on your age, and situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations. Aside from these situations, x-rays are a common part of the examination process when looking for vertebral subluxations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time subluxations may have been involved in your spine. Commonly, most patients receive spinal x-rays at the beginning of care.
With this important information we can make a more accurate determination of the type of adjustments your spine needs as well as the initial frequency of your care. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail at your Report of Findings.
Report of Findings
You will be given a verbal and written report of findings within the few days of your initial office visit. During this visit, we will discuss x-rays and other findings and recommend a care plan. We will also go over any special intructions you will need to obtain the best and fastest possible results.
