Chiropractic care is a non-invasive approach to treating the neuromuscular skeletal system. By looking over your body as a whole a chiropractor is able to detect what issues may be causing your pain. If you have never been to a chiropractor, the first trip can be a little intimidating. Today, we are going to tell you what you can expect.
New Patient Paperwork
Once you have made an appointment, often before you step through the office doors, you will have new patient paperwork to fill out. Here at Fletcher Chiropractic, we make this easy by providing our new patients with all their paperwork in an online portal! You can fill it all out from the comfort of your own home before your appointment.
During Your First Appointment
After you have filled out your paperwork, you will meet with either Dr. Curtis or Dr. Kadi Fletcher and talk with them about your current health issues. The doctors will ask about your health history, social habits, dietary habits, and other questions that will help them determine your treatment regimen.
After your consultation, you will have a physical examination which will help the doctors to rule out any other possible causes of your pain. This examination may include tests such as range of motion, muscle strength, and reflexes. If further testing is needed, the doctors will refer you out for any necessary tests including X-rays.
After the doctors have had a chance to review your paperwork, consultation, and examination they will develop a treatment plan unique to you and your needs. This plan may include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, or other services we offer.
At Fletcher Chiropractic, our goal is to provide you with the best chiropractic care possible. We want to help you heal your pain and get you back to your life as quickly as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting you soon!
