What to Expect During a Chiropractic Appointment
If you’ve suffered a recent injury, have chronic pain, or need to improve your posture, chiropractic services could be a great benefit to decrease pain and discomfort and speed your recovery. At Vida Integrated Health, we offer elaborate chiropractic services targeting different conditions. Here’s what to expect during your appointments with our Chiropractors.
Chiropractic services can resolve various issues that affect the musculoskeletal system. When you visit our clinic, we seek to identify the root cause of your pain and establish your treatment goals. Some patients need to recuperate after an injury, while others want to manage a chronic condition. Our chiropractors will review your past procedures and medical history and perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine underlying issues.
You can expect a physical examination featuring reflex analysis, posture analysis, and range of motion evaluation. We may recommend imaging tests like x-rays to see what’s going on with your spine and muscles based on your reason for visit and if required. Expect a series of questions to diagnose your health, condition, and lifestyle needs. An extensive intake form will be completed for the Chiropractor to review during your initial consultation. The recommended diagnosis depends on what we infer from the initial discussions and exam.
You’ll receive initial treatment, like a manual adjustment or soft tissue manipulation if it is suitable. Expect physical adjustments that move your pain areas to the maximum range of motion. You might hear popping or cracking, but the adjustment shouldn’t cause any pain. The treatment may include heat, ice, and muscle massage, depending on what we diagnose.
Vida Integrated Health offers many chiropractic services, including manual adjustments, myofascial release, active release techniques, and soft tissue manipulation. Other services include myofascial decompression, tissue strengthening, muscle stretching, activating tendons and muscles, bone adjustments, cupping, traction, and class-4 laser therapy.
Treatment Plan & Advice
The initial treatment is performed to provide instant relief. After treatment, you’ll receive a plan and take-home advice to help maintain the results of the first adjustment. The advice may include exercises and lifestyle changes to improve your range of motion. Our professional chiropractors have access to a team of Doctors and Therapists in clinic to refer you to as needed to advise you concerning diet, nutrition, vitamins, and supplements as well as additional therapies such as acupuncture, massage therapy or physical therapy.
Chiropractic treatments can last several weeks and involve a comprehensive plan to achieve specific results. We’ll work together to plan a schedule for follow-up visits that may be required or routine checkin in the future.
