What to Expect on your First Visit
Your first visit to Back to Health Chiropractic and Wellness should be a “WOW” experience, in which you tell your friends in Winona about. As you enter our clinic you will be greeted by smiling, friendly faces, and offered a cup of tea or lemon water. Do not be surprised if you see many families and children in the waiting room. The clinic is built intentionally wide open and there will be a bustle of activity in the waiting room area. All of our treatment rooms are private and somewhat sound-proof. Our goal is to be your Chiropractor in Winona. Below is a quick overview of how your first visit will look.
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
Future Treatments & Beyond
Back to Health Chiropractic and Wellness is committed to your well-being and health. We want to be your home away from home. But we will not over treat or set you up on a drawn out treatment schedule. We will assess your situation and devise a treatment plan that fits for you. If we are not seeing results within the first few visits we will refer you to our network of trusted medical professionals in Winona.
