What to Know as a New Patient of Chiropractic Care or Massage Therapy
As a new patient seeking chiropractic care, here are some important things you should know:
- Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly those related to the spine. Chiropractors use hands-on techniques, such as spinal adjustments, to manipulate the spine and other joints in the body to alleviate pain and improve overall health and wellness.
- Upon your first visit we conduct a thorough examination and evaluation of your health history before initiating any treatment. This includes physical examinations and other diagnostic tests to determine the underlying cause of your condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
- From this point of understanding, we will tailor your treatment plan to your specific condition and health goals. Treatment may involve spinal adjustments, joint mobilization, soft tissue techniques, exercise recommendations, and lifestyle advice to help you achieve optimal results.
- Moving forward, treatments are delivered through a series of sessions over a period of time. The frequency and duration of treatment will depend on the nature and severity of your condition on a case by case basis.
It’s important to communicate openly and honestly with your chiropractor about your symptoms, health history, and any concerns you may have. This will help to better understand your condition and provide appropriate care.
Both chiropractic treatments and massage are used to treat a variety of conditions. This includes back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and musculoskeletal injuries resulting from sports or accidents.
