• What to Expect

  • If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

    Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

    The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.

    So check us out on our website.  Poke around get to know us, then when you're ready contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.  Then you will feel at home just like all our other patients and friends. 

  • Your First Visit

    New patients often remark how “homey” our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. So, make yourself at home!

    Make Yourself at Home

    You’ll find plenty of convenient parking and a well-lit parking lot. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our office and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.

    If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short video to acquaint you with our practice.

    We Explain Everything First

    The purpose of your consultation is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help us identify the likely cause of your problem.

  • Phase 1: Relief Care

    You Just Want Relief

    Most people's first visit to the chiropractor is because they are in a lot of pain. So much pain that they can't perform normal activities, and sometimes can't concentrate on anything else.

    Sometimes, there are other symptoms. Numbness and tingling in the extremities might be frightening rather than painful.

    You want to feel better, and right away.

    Here's what we can do for you.

    We can find out why you are experiencing the discomfort you are in.

    And we can make it feel somewhat better right away.

    To get you back to full health will take some time.

    There is a saying: if you spend two days walking into the woods, don't expect to turn around and walk back out in five minutes.

    It is going to take some time for us, working together, to get you back to your peak.

    • We have to work to ease your joints back to their correct position.
    • Your body has to cease responding to the injury with inflammation
    • You have to help your body reduce that inflammation
    • Your body has to repair the injury damage
    • You have to do exercises and stretches to strengthen supporting tissues
    • We have to continue to correct misalignments as they recur.
    • You have to continue to exercise, stretch, and come back for periodic adjustment to prevent re-injury.

    So ...

    In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms and get you some immediate relief.

    It will be a little while until you are back to full health.

  • Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

    The corrective phase of treatment requires less frequent visits to the office. Your progress is monitored. Exercises may be assigned to strengthen your supporting musculature. Corrective care continues until your body has recovered from the injury, so that you are not at risk of relapse or re-injury.

    The frequency and duration of this phase depends upon your condition and risk level.

     

  • Phase 3: Wellness Care

    Although not required, many patients elect to continue with periodic adjustments. They find that they feel better and that it helps to avoid problems in the future. The frequency of visits in the wellness phase is based on personal preference, and aligned with lifestyle and goals.
