Any new experience, especially when it comes to your health, can be unnerving. We understand this and we will make every effort to make your first experience very comfortable. Our friendly staff and the doctor will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have. We recommend for your first appointment, you arrive fifteen minutes early to complete the required paperwork. A complete health history is the first step for any new chiropractic patient. We will ask about old injuries, chronic problems, and your current symptoms.
In addition, the doctor might inquire about your family history, dietary habits, job or work habits, and previous treatments for the current condition (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.).
After reviewing the health history, Dr. Carrie will discuss her findings with you and determine how your condition could best be treated. If the doctor feels chiropractic will help you, then (and only then) will she recommend a treatment plan - or if conditions allow, discuss a choice of treatment options.
Treatments will be tailored to your specific needs and addressing your specific health problems and personal concerns. Aside from adjustments, other therapeutic methods, massage techniques, or home care remedies may be recommended.
