A Comfortable Visit With Our Chiropractors in Raleigh NC
Upon entering our office for your first visit with our chiropractors in Raleigh NC, our receptionist will greet and welcome you like a member of our family. You will need to complete our patient forms, located in the New Patient Center, to provide us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Next, there is a consultation with Dr. Rick. We want to get to know you on a personal level. This helps us understand your health-related problems and map out potential treatment options. We designed your first chiropractic visit to listen so we can learn more about you, your condition and address any concerns to determine whether chiropractic care is right for you.
Next, our chiropractors in Raleigh NC, Dr. Rick, will perform a complete chiropractic examination. We will test your reflexes, ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurologic, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Comfort is our focal point and nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Everyone is a little different and your specific issue may require us to take x-rays to fully evaluate your condition. X-rays allow us to immediately identify any misalignment, degeneration and rule out more serious conditions. Electing for X-rays during your first chiropractic visit greatly assists us in developing the most effective treatment plan for your situation.
Report of Findings
After we have completed your examination, Dr. Rick will gather all of the information and present a report of findings to you. This report answers the three most popular questions:
- Can you help me?
- Recommend that will make you feel better?
- How much is it going to cost?
Together, we review your history of health-related problems, your treatment goals, examination and any x-rays or tests. We answer any of your questions or concerns and then discuss our recommendations. If your condition requires the care of other providers, we will be honest and recommend their treatment. If our doctors believe that our treatment can help you then we will work with you to develop a perfect wellness program.
Typically, patients will be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of their chiropractic visit. Our treatment programs are fully interactive with you. Please express any concerns you may have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with and we will accommodate. Treatments may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
