Chiropractic involves restoring normal spinal function to allow your body’s nervous system to function as it was intended.
Are you uneasy about your first visit to a chiropractor? One step inside our office and you will know you’re in the right place. You will be welcomed with a smile and all of your initial paperwork will be explained to you.
We understand that when you’re in pain (or just not feeling well), and you arrive at a new place – you want to know what to expect right away. We pride ourselves on educating our patients so that there are no surprises and you’ll know what’s going to happen next.
Since chiropractic care usually takes more than one visit, we know that developing a relationship with our patients is so important. Some of our patients come to see us for years, so the beginning of your treatment can really set the tone for your entire treatment.
The more you understand about our office and our goals for your health – the better your results. Our office should never be a place where you just come to get treatment without any understanding of what we’re trying to accomplish.
Consultation, examination and just learning more about your
health and condition.
“Report of findings.” We explain what we found and answer your
questions and concerns.
A regular visit is when we take steps to improving your health.
You will will complete your paperwork (if you haven’t done so already – click here to get the forms to download now). At the Chiropractic Wellness Clinic, we strive to be prompt and on-time for our patients. Expect to spend 30 minutes for your first visit with Dr. Nenshi.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our chiropractic assistant who will review all of your paperwork to make sure nothing is missing. Please turn off your cell phone whenever you arrive at the clinic and remove your coat.
You will then meet Dr. Nenshi who will sit down to perform a consultation and examination, where she will ask you specific questions about your past medical history and why you’ve come to our office. This is your chance to really share what’s been happening and any concerns you might have about beginning care.
During your examination, you will be asked to wear a gown (leaving only your underwear on underneath). We do this so that we can actually see the problem areas and be thorough in our examination.
Dr. Nenshi will perform a neurological, orthopedic and chiropractic examination to further evaluate the information you provided during the initial consultation. If needed, additional tests such as x-rays may be ordered to rule out any conditions that may prevent you from being treated in our office, or to confirm a particular diagnosis.
(If x-rays are required, you will be referred to a nearby facility to have the tests taken and you will be asked to bring the films back to our office before the end of the day.)
During your consultation and examination, if at any time Dr. Nenshi determines that you are not a candidate for chiropractic care, she will let you know immediately and direct you to the right place for your condition.
At the end of your visit, Dr. Nenshi will provide home care instructions and you will be scheduled for your next visit.
Your second visit will also be for approximately 30 minutes, where Dr. Nenshi will review the results of your tests and examination. We explain what we found and how we may be able to help you. (Again we ask that you arrive early for your appointment so that you will be taken on time.)
Dr. Nenshi will begin by asking you about the instructions she provided to you about your treatment at home and ask if you have any questions. After reviewing your information, Dr. Nenshi will answer any questions and explain the your treatment plan and the results you can expect.
In the event she thinks chiropractic care is not right for you or for your condition, she will explain why and provide the referral to the care that is right for you.
Before accepting you as a patient, Dr. Nenshi will talk with you about your responsibilities as a patient at Chiropractic Wellness Clinic. This includes following through on home care instructions, being consistent with your visits and attending our new patient orientation class. Dr. Nenshi sees the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership, where both she and you need to be on the same page and completely committed to getting results.
Once you have reviewed all the information regarding your diagnosis and the recommendations for care, Dr. Nenshi will talk to you about how much it will all cost.
Near the end of your second visit, Dr. Nenshi will perform your first chiropractic adjustment. Most patients do not need to wear a gown for their chiropractic adjustment, as long as they are dressed in loose clothing and are able to remove any bulky layers. (If you do have uncomfortable clothing, we will provide a gown.)
Before you leave, we will schedule the remainder of your visits recommended by Dr. Nenshi.
When you arrive for a regular chiropractic appointment, you will need to remove your jacket and shoes in the reception area, turn off your cell phone, and then you will be shown to a chiropractic treatment room at your scheduled appointment time.
You can then prepare for your adjustment by removing any additional bulky layers and sitting on the chiropractic adjusting table until Dr. Nenshi arrives.
Dr. Nenshi will review your file, answer any questions, and then deliver a chiropractic adjustment specific to your condition. She will typically follow with cold laser therapy (for pain relief and accelerated healing of soft tissues) and provide additional home care instructions (if needed).
Other modalities that may take additional time such as detoxification footbaths, rehabilitation exercises and massage therapy may be provided as adjunctive care afterwards if warranted.
On your way out you will take care of your account and confirm your next appointment. A typical chiropractic appointment should take 10-15 minutes from when you arrive to the office until you leave the clinic.
