What To Expect | Welcome To Louisville Spinal Care

Welcome mat

You will immediately feel welcome!

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.

So, check us out here. Poke around. Get to know us. Then, contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.


Your First Visit

After everything is explained and the examination, radiographs are taken.

New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.

You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.

The first visit is comprised of finishing all necessary paperwork. If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short 5-minute video and then you’ll meet your doctor.

The purpose of your consultation with the chiropractor is to discuss your health goals and see how chiropractic can help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will be done at this time.

Upon completion you will consult with your treating doctor.The doctor will then proceed in examining you using chiropractic and orthopedic tests. If needed, radiographs are then taken after the examination. Before your second visit, the doctor will compile all information from the consult, exam and radiographs to prepare your recommendation of care.


Your Second Visit

Report of findings

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of your doctor, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.


Regular Visits

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

Rehab

Avoid relapse with regular visits

The typical first visit includes:

  1. Check in
  2. Therapy (if needed)
  3. Adjustment
  4. Schedule next appointment

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just five to 10 minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.

Thanks for visiting our site. We look forward to meeting with you in person and learning how chiropractic can fit into your health care goals. Give our Louisville chiropractic office a call or click here to email us and we can arrange a time to explore your options!
