The initial visit is about 1 hour long and will consist of a thorough overview of your current condition as well as any other health concerns you may have. The doctor will perform a complete physical and neurological exam, specific orthopedic tests, posture evaluation, possibly make you perform some specific movements to assess how you’re body functions together, and X-rays if needed to get an accurate diagnosis of what is causing your symptoms. Dr. Long will then go over the exam findings with you, answer any questions or concerns you have, and explain your possible treatment options. If you are ready to begin treatment you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment that same day. *If chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition we will not hesitate to refer you to the appropriate health care provider so you can get the care you need.
The second session is thirty minutes long. We will go over how you responded to the first treatment, which gives us both a better idea of how long treatment should take. We will also go over your X-Rays, I’ll provide you any other questions or concerns you have regarding your treatment plan to ensure that we are both on the same page. (Each following visit after that will be 15 minutes long unless otherwise specified.)
