What to expect
On your initial first visit.
The first visit will consist of a full health history and examination to allow Dr. Barbara to get to know all of your health concerns. After discussing your treatment plan, you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment.
The first phase of your treatment is relief care, which is geared towards pain relief. In addition to the in office adjustments, Dr. Barbara will give you home care instructions including exercises, stretches and other recommendations.
The next phase of treatment is corrective/restorative care. In this phase your treatment will be to improve and maintain the function of your joints, muscles and nervous system. You will be given additional exercises, ergonomic and lifestyle recommendation and information to help you return to and maintain your normal daily activities.
Finally, wellness/maintenance care keeps your body functioning. Routine chiropractic care helps you avoid re-injury and helps protect your spine and joints from degenerative changes associated with stress and aging.
