What to Expect on your First
Our goal is to provide excellent chiropractic care to help individuals and families regain and maintain their health. At Natural Chiropractic Healing, you can expect Dr. Noey to provide you with the highest quality chiropractic care in a warm, caring, and educational environment. Whether you are looking for relief from acute or chronic pain or want to maintain wellness, we can help you!
When you enter our office, a member of our friendly staff or Dr. Noey will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete patient intake forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. If patients wish to use insurance (For Chiropractic services ONLY) they should bring their insurance card and photo ID. For both services, we ask that you bring in or list any medications and/or nutrients you are currently taking. You will be taken on a short tour to get you acquainted with our beautiful new facility. Then, you will be escorted into the consultation/exam room.
Next, you will have a consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations and to determine how chiropractic/colon hydrotherapy care can meet your goals. Our patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance. That's good because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable setting surrounding. Your history and future goals for health will be recorded. During the consultation, you will obtain a general understanding of proper dietary needs, postural concerns, nutritional needs, etc.. Once you've agreed to proceed, you will receive a general vitals examination. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.
After your consultation, Dr. Noey will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your range of motion, reflexes, flexibility, neurological, orthopedic, and postural. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent. Our patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance. Our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable setting.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. We provide onsite digital X-rays to 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 X-rays up close.
X-RAYS and most lab tests can be taken, in the office, the same day.
Custom Treatment Plan
After your detailed consultation and examination, Dr. Noey will study your X-rays and will develop a custom treatment plan based on your goals and needs. On your second visit Dr. Noey will go over your plan in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Report of Findings (Second Visit)
We'll spend 15-20 minutes reviewing our findings with you offering answers to the four questions most patients have when they consult our office:
- What’s wrong?
- Can chiropractic help?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
The Choice is Yours
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Noey will make recommendations and you'll be presented with some choices:
- Proceed with chiropractic care
- Ignore the problem hoping it will resolve
- Medication to reduce symptoms
- Physical therapy
- Surgical intervention
At the conclusion of the second appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include physical therapy, soft tissue therapy such as Active Release Techniques, spinal adjustments and home exercises. Treatment is interactive, so feel free to ask as many questions as you like.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length. In a word: no. A typical office visit may require just 15-25 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, Pain, Pain during Pregnancy, Rotator Cuff Injury, Sciatica (shooting leg pain), Shoulder Pain, TMJ Syndrome (jaw pain), Whiplash Injury (motor vehicle collision injury), Foot Pain, and more.
A regular visit may include heat/ ice, electrical muscle stimulation, Active Release Techniques, Chiropractic adjustments, and rehabilitation exercises. Initial Consultation, Auto Injury Rehabilitation, Spinal and Orthopedic exam, Posture Correction, X-Rays Spinal Adjustments, Extremity Adjustments, Exercise Rehabilitation, Manual Soft Tissue Therapy, Custom Orthotics, Injury Rehabilitation for Children and Adults.
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 provide regular re-evaluations for progress of care and honest recommendations that honor your health goals.
