Laying a Foundation for a Long Life Full of Joy
We want everyone who comes through our door to have a complete picture of what they can expect at our clinic, with no surprises. At your first visit, the doctor's assistant will guide you through some basic paperwork (save time by printing and filling out the forms here) and help you settle in and feel welcome in the office. Then, you'll go with her to the examination room, and take some basic vitals (height, weight, seated blood pressure, and a scan of your feet). We have a short video we show to new patients that gives you more specific info about chiropractic. Then, you'll have some time to talk with the doctor about what brings you to us, followed by some tests and scans to rule out more serious problems and determine how he can best get to work on helping you!
Patients often go through 3 general "phases" of treatment with us:
Phase 1: Crisis Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care two to three times per week for 4 to 12 weeks.
Not everyone needs this phase. Children, for example, don't generally have the long-standing complicated spinal issues that plague many of us grown-ups. And many people enjoy chiropractic for its ability to help them maximize their potential and achieve optimum function in daily life, to stop pain before it arises in the first place. But many people also have pain, and we want everyone to feel good!
We can work with you on monthly payments that fit within your budget. Ask the front desk for details, or see our payment options page. This phase may be partially covered by insurance in some cases.
Phase 2: The Critical Transition
During this phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care four to eight times per month for six to 24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. It may be that the problem that brought you to us starts to feel better at this point, but there have typically been no long-term changes in the body. It is important that you stick with us during this phase, to ensure that the problem doesn't return! However, this is the stage at which it becomes gradually more difficult to get insurance to pay.
Regular examinations are required to ensure proper monitoring of your health as we go.
Phase 3: Living Your Best Life
We want all our patients to be able to enjoy optimum health. What sort of lifestyle will help you enjoy yourself most fully, no matter how old you are? We propose that chiropractic can be a major part of your success in this journey. Move beyond a negative focus, and living from problem to problem, and make chiropractic a regular treat for your whole body! You can get started right now.
We would love for you to make your annual chiropractic examination and regular adjustments a part of your life, to ensure that you enjoy every moment of your life to its fullest. Take control of your health!
