What Can I Expect

Going to the Integrative Healthcare Facility is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.

As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with your chosen healthcare provider, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a physical examination and most likely perform additional advanced testing procedures, such as a surface EMG to see how your muscles are working, an infrared paraspinal thermograph to see if you have any heat/inflammation along the spine, a "dual inclinometer" to determine how well you are moving, or even an "acugraph" to see if acupuncture would be of value to your healthcare progreess. Once this is complete, we'll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we'll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.
