After you have completed your new patient forms, you will have a chiropractic consultation with one of the doctors to discuss your healthcare concerns and problems. We will explain at this time what we do, what to expect, and your health goals. This is your chance to meet the doctors and decide for yourself if you would like to be treated.
A comprehensive chiropractic examination will be performed after the consultation. It will include, but is not limited to a neurological, orthopedic, and chiropractic assessment. Other postural, gait analysis, and physical tests may be performed. We will not proceed with chiropractic care without your consent.
Once we have gathered all of the necessary information we will give you a detailed explanation of our findings and answer any questions you may have such as:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to be treated?
- How much will it cost?
We will then discuss our recommendations on how to get you feeling and functioning better as soon as possible. Your doctor will put together a treatment plan that meets both your needs and goals.
At the end of your consultation, examination, and report of findings, you can choose to experience your first chiropractic treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, soft tissue massage, manual muscle release techniques, exercise education and/or physiotherapy. At Venture Chiropractic we utilize many different adjusting techniques so we can best accommodate your needs.
You are an active participant in your care so any concerns or questions are encouraged anytime during your care. At the end of each treatment we will suggest certain activities to avoid, ice or heat application, and home exercises and/or stretches you may perform to aid in your treatment. We are a team and will work together to improve your health. Nutritional counseling recommendations for healthy habits and routines are available if interested. Our goal is to improve your overall wellness by having a healthy nervous system, healthy diet, active lifestyle, and a positive mental outlook.
