If treatment for your specific complaint is warranted and time allows, a treatment will be provided on your initial visit. Specific treatments provided to patients are individualized to their presenting condition. The type of treatment recommended will depend on your age, your medical history, your fitness level and how much pain you are in at the time of your visit. A treatment approach used for one patient may be very different for another patient. We are also sensitive to the fact that sometimes first time patients of chiropractic care may be nervous or hesitant. We go out of our way to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable during any visit in our office.
Treatment provided by our chiropractors may include one or a combination of the following therapies: a chiropractic adjustment (spinal or extremity manipulation), Myofascial Release Technique, Graston Technique, low-intensity laser therapy, kinesiotaping, ice or heat. Custom foot orthotics are occasionally recommended for some conditions, a service which we also provide. Any treatment will be fully discussed with the patient prior to its application.
A treatment plan will be recommended which will include the number of estimated treatments that you will require to treat your specific problem.
You will be sent home with instructions on how to manage your complaint on your own. This may include directions on using ice or heat, specific stretches or exercises to do or activities that you should avoid so as not to aggravate the problem.
If the doctor does not think that your problem can be best treated with a chiropractic approach, you will be referred to the appropriate doctor or practitioner.
