What to Expect on Your First Visit to a Chiropractor
A visit to our office begins with a thorough assessment of your condition and health history. This helps our chiropractic doctors identify the root causes of your pain.
Your exam is pain-free and non-invasive. We take the time to discuss your concerns, consider all underlying health conditions, and even study your movement to look for signs of functional challenges.
From there, we can recommend a treatment plan designed to quickly and effectively resolve pain and restore movement.
We can address a wide variety of issues, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Headaches and migraines
Our chiropractic services are focused on quick, long-lasting pain relief. Your treatment will include a series of chiropractic adjustments targeting your troubled areas. At your first appointment, we will perform your first adjustment based on our findings. Chiropractic adjustments use gentle movements to help ease misalignments of the spine and joints back into their proper position.
Our goal is to find the fastest path to recovery and pain relief. That can include both chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression, which gently stretches your body to open the space between your vertebrae. If we find further techniques to improve your treatment, we will either perform these treatments at your first appointment or schedule an appointment before you leave.
Your treatment schedule will be set to suit your busy schedule. Some people can receive adjustments that can correct their issue in just a few appointments, while others will require a longer treatment plan in hand with additional pain relief methods. Whatever your case is, we’ll suggest options for the quickest path to recovery.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic adjustments provide all-natural pain relief without the need for pain medications, surgery, or more invasive treatments or procedures. Through gentle manipulation, we can correct areas of the spine that are misaligned and ease painful joints into the proper position.
Adjustments will address a number of issues providing the following benefits:
- Reduced joint restrictions
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved joint function
- Improved nervous system function to enhance natural pain management
- Reduced pressure on discs
- Improved blood flow
As mentioned, we might also recommend complementary treatments such as spinal decompression. This treatment assists in healing injured discs by alternately stretching and releasing sections of the spine one section at a time. The stretching helps heal discs and restore their healthy shape. The procedure relieves pressure on nerves, returns strength, and reduces pain and weakness.
