Your second visit to our office will be very exciting. This appointment will be approximately 40 minutes in duration and will include your Report of Findings as well as your first adjustment. Please wear loose fitting clothing so that you are comfortable through out the session.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, your practitioner will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions:
- Can you help me?
- What do you recommend that I do to get better?
- How much is it going to cost?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, your practitioner will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If your practitioner believes we can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the second appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physiotherapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your success. Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
