Your First Visit
On your first visit to Columbia City Chiropractic, we will have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. To expedite your visit, print the New Patient History and bring it completed to your appointment. If you are seeking treatment for an auto accident, please also fill out the Auto Accident Form.
What to Expect
The first time you see Dr. Frederick, he will make a thorough record of your health history. This helps him pinpoint the actual problem instead of focusing on just the symptoms.
Dr. Frederick will then perform an examination of your spine, posture, and body alignment. A number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist him in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, you will generally be provided with your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, traction, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, you will be given self-treatment advice which may include: the application of ice or heat, any activities or positions to avoid, and home exercises and/or stretches to help relieve pain and speed healing. We will also schedule an appointment time for your follow-up visit.
Patients are usually seen within 1 to 2 days and will be provided with a complete review of the examination and x-ray findings. During this report of findings, Dr. Frederick will explain what is out of alignment, and what type of treatment will bring you back to health. Treatment recommendations for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
