What to Expect in our Fairfax Chiropractic Office
New Patient Center
Your First Visit
Our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable environment. Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked to complete some online paperwork so that we can learn more about you and your reason for visiting us. When you arrive, you will find a well-lit parking lot with ample parking. You will be greeted by name upon entering our practice and will then meet with one of our Active Family Wellness team members!
We Explain Everything First
The purpose of your consultation is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic care is right for you. This “discovery process” is important for us so that we can understand our patients and work towards implementing better and healthier life changing practices together.
We’ll need a little information about you and why you are visiting us.
Chiropractic adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
Your Second Visit
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 our Active Family Wellness team, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many care members become concerned that every visit will be of equal length. In a word: no.
A typical practice 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.
Avoid relapse with regular visits.
