Your First Chiropractic Visit
During the first visit, Dr. Davis will complete a thorough examination that typically includes:
- Patient history
- Physical examination
- Diagnostic studies (when indicated)
- Chiropractic treatment plan
If you and Dr. Davis agree that chiropractic will help, you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment.
Dr. Davis will adapt the treatment plan to meet your specific needs. Other treatments, including therapeutic ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, ice and heat, traction, soft tissue massage and rehabilitative exercise may also be used.
The extent and duration of the patient’s problems coupled with the hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment may require numerous visits. Dr. Davis will tell you how long you can expect the treatment to last.
You may also receive instructions on certain activities or procedures to conduct at home. This may include ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
When Will I Feel Better?
Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but it may take others two to three weeks before they achieve substantial progress. Many factors can affect the healing process. Are you suffering from a chronic problem or pain? Do you smoke? Are you following the recommended treatment plan? Usually, the more fully patients carry out the doctor’s recommendations, the better the results.
