Next, you will have a consultation with a doctor of Focused On You Chiropractic to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals. Request An Appointment Here
After your consultation, we will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Each Examination includes basic vitals, rolling thermal heat & inflammation test, static electricity muscle tension test, and a standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. Find out why we are different from anyone else you will see here.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
At the conclusion of the initial appointment, and after the doctor has had time to review additional studies, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This initial treatment will help our doctors understand your body more and be able to asses a more accurate and precise treatment plan.
The Doctor's Report of Findings
Once the information is collected, examinations are performed, and we see how your body responds to treatments, Dr. Gerard or Dr. Andrew will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, examining your spine and X-rays, and seeing how your body responds to treatments, will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs. All of your financial information will be gone over, including any insurance coverage you might have, so you will know exactly what to expect in our office.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
