Your First Visit to Family First Chiropractic
Dripping Springs Office
South Austin Office
Your first visit to Family First Chiropractic, upon entering our chiropractic assistant will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with a Family First Chiropractic Chiropractor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural evaluation, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Digital X-Ray Studies
Depending on your specific condition, we may take digital X-rays as well. Digital X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their digital X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignment and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your Family First Chiropractic doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and digital X-rays, your Family First Chiropractic doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Your Family First Chiropractic doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of your Report of Findings, if we are able to help you, you can choose to experience your first treatment.. This may include spinal adjustments, active rehab, and manual therapy. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
