We want you to feel confident about your first visit
If you have never been treated by a chiropractor before, you might be wondering what the experience will be like. It’s normal to feel a little anxious about trying something new, so our goal is to put you at ease right away.
Visiting a chiropractor is similar to visiting other healthcare providers, but we do things a little differently. Upon your arrival to HealthMax, you’ll be greeted warmly by our Front Desk team member, not from behind a glass wall like in most doctor’s offices. We will offer you water, coffee, or tea, and ask you to complete a health history questionnaire. Then we will give you a tour of the clinic and show you to the consultation room.
That’s where you will meet your doctor of chiropractic. The two of you will discuss the health concerns that brought you in. Then to help us determine the cause of your pain, your doctor will perform an examination.
The exam typically includes postural assessment, range of motion assessment, orthopedic testing (movements that assess joints and muscles), neurologic testing (reflexes, muscle strength, and sensation to assess the nerves), palpation (feeling the muscles and joints), and finishes with x-rays (if needed). These assessments determine the cause of your problem and allow the doctor to create a treatment plan to get you feeling better.
The best chiropractic care comes from building a strong relationship between doctor and patient. We want to hear your questions and concerns and we will take all the time necessary to make sure you feel confident about your treatment plan. If we determine you are not a candidate for chiropractic care we will tell you and recommend some better options for your situation. We are here to be your partner on the journey to a healthier, happier you.
