What to Expect
Your First Visit
When entering Freedom Square Chiropractic you will be greeted with a warm hello. You will be asked to sign your name on our sign in sheet and will be given New Patient Forms. If you would like to fill out the forms before your visit, you can by selecting the New Patient tab on our website and clicking on Patient Forms. If you would like to use insurance towards your visit please give your insurance card and I.D. to the front desk. If you are not sure if you have chiropractic coverage we can call on your insurance for you. If you don't have insurance you will be expected to pay our cash price for the visit. After filling out the forms you fill out a tablet, this tablet will provide the doctor with the information needed to treat your condition.
Consultation & Examination
Next, you'll meet with the doctor. The initial consultation is designed to learn more about you and what steps can be taken to treat your condition. In the examination the doctor will check your postural alignment, your ability to bend and turn, as well as your neurological responses. By doing a examination the doctor can determine what might be out of alignment in the body. The doctor may suggest x-rays if he thinks it is necessary, but it is not required on the first visit. After the examination the doctor will go over your treatment plan and what stretches you can do at home.
Our assistants will take over and you will be placed on electrical stimulation therapy. Electrical stimulation therapy or (E-Stim) is designed to mimic the muscles, by contracting and releasing. It sends out a electrical current to the area of pain to help relax the muscles. The wires on the machine are attached to four adhesive patches and then are placed on the skin. The electrical current is sent through the wires to the adhesive pads creating a sensory and motor response. This therapy will last up to 10 minutes.
After therapy our assistants will direct you to the front desk. The front desk will collect your payment, schedule your next appointment and answer any other question you may have. It is common to be seen by the doctor 1 to 3 times a week depending on your condition. The doctor will go over your treatment plan during your consultation. The goal is to alleviate the symptoms, balance out any subluxation in the spine and come back for routine maintenance.
