Are you new to this type of treatment?
What should I expect on my first visit?
The initial visit is comprised of the evaluation(history and examination) and the treatment. The evaluation will provide the information needed to give a diagnosis and options for treatment.
The options for treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, Active Release Techniques, Graston Technique, massage therapy, or one of the other effective soft tissue techniques available. Treatment options may also include treatments done at other clinics and by other types of professionals. Also, the likelihood of success and the estimated duration of treatments will be discussed for each of the types of treatment available. You, as the patient, will get to choose which ones you prefer.
Home care instructions will be given if necessary. Information will also be given to help reduce the chances of recurrence and for general health on following visits.
People's conditions usually show improvement very quickly with the treatments we do at our office, if the condition has not shown obvious signs of improvement within 4 visits treatment will be discontinued and a referral will be given to the appropriate health care provider.
