New to Chiropractic Care? Don't Worry!
By Donna Stark
If you have decided that chiropractic care needs to become a part of your life and plan on seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic, you probably have a good reason for doing so. But that doesn't mean you don't have any questions or that you aren't interested in learning more. After all, even with the same general issues, every person requires individualized care, and fortunately, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic recognize that. Let's take a quick look at what you can expect during your visits.
Your First Visit
Make sure you bring your questions and concerns to your first visit as this will be the best time to address them all. You should also be ready to explain what you hope to achieve and if you are experiencing pain, where, when, and how it hurts. Your chiropractor will then go on to do the following.
- Collect your medical history and symptoms
- Perform a thorough examination
- Request any additional information if needed
- Perform a safe and gentle adjustment
Healing and Recovery Process
At the end of your visit, your chiropractor will explain the steps of the treatment plan they designed specifically for your needs and may even give you an anticipated timeline for your recovery. Keep in mind though, that the healing and recovery process is dependent on many different factors. Here are just a few of them.
- The severity and the type of the medical condition
- The length of time the condition has been present
- The state of your overall health and wellness
- Your age and lifestyle habits
- Your willingness to commit to doing what it takes to get better
The goal of your chiropractor is to get you back on the path to good health as quickly as possible, so you can rest assured knowing they won't needlessly tack on visits just to keep you coming in. But, you may want to consider establishing routine chiropractic care if you are interested in improving your overall health and wellness. The good thing about maintenance visits is that they aren't nearly as frequent and the number of times you want to come is up to you. But, it is good to know that consistent chiropractic care has the most impact. Talk to your chiropractor during your visits to learn more.
