Your First Visit Spinal Evaluation is designed to locate "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). There are a couple of things that you should expect when you arrive for your first visit at our office.
Our Spinal Evaluation consists of a focused spinal exam which includes spinal palpation. Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam Dr. Ron can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations Spinal position, abnormal spinal curvatures leg length and muscle tone are also evaluated as they relate to possible spinal subluxations. If you require x-rays due age, type of injury or other health concern, you will be referred to our local radiology center. A gentle, specific chiropractic adjustment is included on the first visit as clinically indicated.
Your Report of Findings is your most important visit and will be scheduled within a few days of your first visit. At your Report of Findings Dr. Ron will discuss your plan of care and go over any special instructions you will need to obtain the best and fastest possible results. We offer two types of care in our office:
Corrective Care is the most common starting point for our practice members and is designed for you if you are currently experiencing pain, sickness, spinal arthritis, spinal degeneration or other health problems. Your Corrective Care Plan is designed to help you feel healthy again as quickly as possible and to stabilize your spine.Corrective care is a process consisting of frequent chiropractic adjustments, usually two or three times per week over a period of 6 to 12 weeks. Once your spine is stable and holding an adjustment, you may graduate to wellness Care
Wellness Care consists of regular adjustments designed to build on the good work you achieved during your corrective care and to keep your spine healthy and in adjustment. Your personal wellness care adjustment frequency is determined based upon how well your spine holds an adjustment. Wellness Care is designed to help you stay healthy and active over the course of your life.
