What Should I Expect When Dr. George Arrives?
When I arrive, you will have a consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, I will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done without your consent.
Report of Findings:
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, I 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 I should I do now?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, I will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. I will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Everyday Wellness Program:
Prior to leaving, I will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when I first come into your home/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, I can also 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.
No job, bills, or stress is more important then YOU taking care of YOU! If you take care of YOU first, everything else falls into place with less pressure and this is what allows you to live a more healthy, happy, and pain-free life!
