What To Expect On Your First Visit
Whether you’ve been to a chiropractor before or if this is your first chiropractic experience, you will be greeted with a warm smile by Dr. Daria or Dr. Joe.
After signing in, we will spend a few minutes getting to know each other. We’ll talk about what chiropractic is, what we do and why. And we’ll talk about what you are looking for from your family’s chiropractor.
Why do we do this? To make sure that you and your family are in the right place. Example: If you’re looking to buy a washer and dryer and we’re selling color TVs, neither of us is going to have a great experience. If you’re looking for something other than what we offer at SFCC, we will gladly refer you to someone else who may. Really.
Next, we’ll ask you to complete only the paperwork we absolutely need. After our chiropractic exam, we will share our findings with you and outline our recommendations for care. If, during the course of your exam, we determine the need for additional information (imaging studies, for example), we will assist you in getting that information.
During your adjustment, you may hear a “popping” sound from your spinal joints. Nothing to be alarmed by. This is simply a release of gases within the joint similar to when you crack your knuckles.
After your adjustment, you will be given some paperwork to take home and review. You can expect to be here from 30-45 minutes for your initial visit. And that’s the last appointment you’ll ever make with us!
For all subsequent visits, we have an open adjusting policy whereby you can come in any time during regular hours. You’ll be given a calendar listing of all of the dates and times we are open each month and will also receive an update monthly by e-mail. If our recommendations are to see you three times weekly, pick any three days we are open and come in. It’s that simple. Regular visits take less time than your initial visit. We respect your time and understand the constantly changing dynamic of family commitments.
