Below is a brief overview of what to expect on your first visit to our clinic. If you find that you have more questions, please give us a call at 907.222.2100.
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.
The doctors at Community Chiropractic Clinic will provide a consultation at no charge with each new patient to determine if the patient has a condition that can be treated with chiropractic.
History & Examination:
If your case is accepted for chiropractic treatment, your doctor then conducts a thorough history, chiropractic neurological and orthopedic examination to determine the extent of your conditions or injuries.
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. X-rays are taken only if necessary, using safe, modern equipment.
Same Day Treatment:
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies are completed, you may be provided with your first treatment during this same visit if your condition is acute. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Your doctor is trained in several different adjusting techniques, including low force adjusting, and will choose the technique that best suits your body and condition.
Prior to leaving, you 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 exam and X-ray findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
