What to Expect
If you’ve decided to take the plunge and discover the world of chiropractic care, we can only say, “Congratulations!”
This drug-free, nonsurgical healing method has helped countless individuals in conquering pain, healing from injuries and enjoying a higher overall level of well-being; it can most likely do the same for you.
But perhaps you’re still a little confused or even concerned about what to expect during your first visit to Fraum Center for Restorative Health in Hilton Head Island. We’re more than happy to walk you through the basic steps and help you understand what we hope to accomplish during your initial appointment at our chiropractic care center. We also have information about payment options that can help make chiropractic care even more affordable.
Your First Visit
The first stage of your chiropractic visit will feel familiar to you. If you’ve ever visited a doctor’s office before, you’ll find that we require the same level of initial information as any other practitioner. (You can get a head start on supplying the necessary data by filling out your medical forms right here on our website.)
We’ll ask about your medical and family history, current medications and the symptoms you’re currently experiencing. The next part of your visit will include a detailed health evaluation. The part of your body that is in distress may also undergo specific tests to check muscle strength, range of motion, nerve response and other functions. A combination of palpation and X-ray will also help us in locating areas of subluxation (joint misalignment) in your spine and nerve impingement.
These examinations may be performed while you’re sitting up, lying facedown or reclining on one side on a treatment table.
Your First Adjustment Session
Once the assessment is complete, and the diagnosis has been made, we’ll be ready to talk about what benefits you can expect from treatment. These benefits can include
- Acute pain relief
- Chronic pain management
- Improved wellness potential and optimization
- Enhanced athletic performance
We can then recommend a customized program of chiropractic treatment and other natural therapies to enhance the effectiveness of your chiropractic sessions. If you’re in acute pain, we can deliver your first gentle chiropractic adjustment immediately.
