When you make your first appointment with us, you will be asked to fill out our New Patient Intake Form. Then you will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Fawn to discuss your current health concerns as well as your future health goals and any questions or concerns you may have. After this conversation a thorough exam will be performed, which will include things like checking your range of motion, specific orthopedic and neurologic tests to identify your problems, and performing a set of simple, non-invasive spinal scans to help the doctor determine if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. After this visit, Dr. Fawn will analyze all of the information from the consult and exam and she will develop a personalized care plan to help you reach your health goals. Due to the amount of information gathered on your first visit, it is the longest visit you will have in our office. Please expect to be with us for 45 minutes to 1 hour on day one.
When you return for your second visit, Dr. Fawn will again sit down with you and explain the results of her findings from your first day in the office. She will go over the personalized plan she created in order to help you reach your health goals as quickly and efficiently as possible and she will again answer any questions you may have.
After this discussion you will then receive a chiropractic adjustment, which Dr. Fawn will explain to you step-by-step if it is your first visit with a chiropractor. Depending on your care plan, you may also receive one or more other modalities that Fresh Start Chiropractic offers to help facilitate your progress, like electric muscle stimulation or cold laser therapy. Your second visit will last approximately 20 minutes.
A TYPICAL VISIT
After your first two days in the office, visits with us go much faster and are easier to fit into your busy schedule. Depending on your specific plan, a normal visit will last anywhere from 5-20 minutes. Remember, each adjustment builds on the one before it so keeping your appointments is important! We know your time is valuable and we do all that we can in order to run on time to keep you on schedule!
