My First Visit
Summary of a first visit to the office:
3. X-ray, if warranted and needed
4. Adjustment – if the doctor feels that it is warranted and will help, of course (if not, refer to another professional).
Each doctor will talk their patient through every step of the first visit, so there are no surprises. This also helps the patient feel comfortable with the care and treatment. Each patient leaves with verbal instructions on how they should expect to feel over the next 24 hours.
They are also set up for a second appointment, at which time the doctor will:
• Go over their information and x-rays with them
• Explain everything
• Give a second adjustment
• And then, sit down with the patient to present a care plan to correct and maintain their health.
Nothing will ever be done that the patient is not aware of and consenting to have done.
The main benefit of chiropractic care – is real relief from your symptoms. Chiropractic does not put anything into your body or cut anything out of you. The doctor removes the pressure on the affected nerve so that the brain can communicate and heal the part of the body in question.
The benefits are potentially endless. For example, an irritated nerve that causes pain in the middle of your back will also have a branch that could go to your lungs or heart. You may not even realize that by relieving the pressure on that nerve, your heart or lungs could also function better.
Patients walk in with a two-week migraine and leave feeling no pain. Others have come in not being able to stand up straight but walk out feeling fine. It is true healing – no chemical band-aid. Drugs only treat symptoms and not the true condition.
Proper adjustments treat the condition so the body and brain can heal and remove the symptom. Once the state heals and the pain subsides, a maintenance program will ensure prolonged good health. Brushing your teeth daily and changing the oil in your vehicle every 3,000 miles helps maintain each one and prevents costly breakdowns.
But, with our most valuable asset, our body, we are taught to ignore warning signs, aches, pains, and dysfunction until we are miserable. Then, what do we do? Take drugs to mask the symptoms so the body can redefine its normal in a worse way until the next episode that it cannot hide. Each episode gets closer and closer together and harder and harder to treat when you play this game with your body.

Chiropractic For Healing Migraines & Headaches
Many migraines and headaches are caused by muscle stress connecting the neck to the head. Cervical manipulation and other chiropractic techniques relax these muscles. Many patients find that their headaches and migraines either disappear or their intensity of them is greatly diminished.
Chiropractic for Visceral Complaints (Symptoms not commonly associated with back pain but are)
Visceral complaints are health problems most people wouldn’t immediately connect with chiropractic care. For instance, sinus and congestive issues, digestive issues, headaches, and migraines are visceral disorders that can be fixed through natural chiropractic care. Chiropractic care for visceral complaints is preferred because chiropractic requires no medications, unlike medicine.
