Your First Chiropractic Visit

Too often we hear that when patients go to doctors they feel like they are rushed through the visit and their concerns and questions aren’t satisfactorily addressed. 

Dr. Fawn allows enough time on your first visit to ensure that she is able to thoroughly listen to her patients.  On average, your first appointment will last 45-60 minutes.  When you come to the office for your first time, this is what you can expect.

Initial Paperwork

You will be asked to fill out paperwork that provides us general information about yourself, your reasons for visiting our office, and your health history.

Consultation

You will then have a private consultation with Dr. Fawn where she will talk to you about your health-related problems and concerns to determine if chiropractic care is a good fit for you.

History and Examination

Dr. Fawn will then ask you various questions to get more information on your conditions and then will perform a thorough exam in order to determine if chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition.

Explanation

Dr. Fawn is always sure to explain exactly what chiropractic care is and if and how it can help your specific condition before any treatment is given.  All of your questions about chiropractic will be answered during your initial visit.

Same Day Treatment

Once the history and exam are completed, patients are usually given their first chiropractic adjustment during the same day. 

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your first follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen again within 2-3 days. 

A TYPICAL CHIROPRACTIC VISIT

Dr. Fawn recognizes that people have busy lives and she strives to ensure that follow-up visits do not take as long in order to accommodate hectic schedules.  Routine visits are usually 10-20 minutes long.  However, if a patient ever needs to have more time to discuss concerns with the doctor a longer appointment can be scheduled.

TYPES OF ADJUSTMENTS

Many people who are new to chiropractic are often nervous about their first adjustments, but Dr. Fawn is sure to ease their fears and figure out what method of adjusting will work best for each patient. 

Dr. Fawn is trained in many different chiropractic techniques and she caters her adjusting method to each patient’s needs and comfort level.  She uses a variety of manual “hands on” techniques, including Diversified and Thompson, but she also uses an instrument to provide gentle adjustments that don’t create the ‘popping’ noise that manual methods produce.

No matter what technique she uses, Dr. Fawn promises a gentle touch with dramatic results.


CHIROPRACTIC TESTIMONIALS

I had been seeing Dr. Fawn on a regular basis, and when I found out I was pregnant she explained the benefits of continuing to see her throughout my pregnancy. I continued to see her every month, or more if needed, and I had a very healthy pregnancy and was comfortable because of Dr. Fawn! When my son was born he had some digestive issues and was having a hard time figuring out the whole idea of sleeping. I shared this with Dr. Fawn and she explained how adjusting him could help with both of these issues. I noticed results very soon after his first adjustment! Now we both see Dr. Fawn on a regular basis!

My family has been seeing Dr. Fawn for over 5 years on a regular basis. Dr. Fawn adjusts myself and my two daughters. My youngest had her first adjustment when she was less than two weeks old! Dr. Fawn is great with kids and my kids jump right up on her table and sometimes even argue over who gets to go first! She has seen us through pregnancy, injuries, sickness and everything in between, and we love how she keeps us feeling healthy. My kids are rarely sick and I attribute part of that to their regular chiropractic adjustments! Her staff is great, so friendly and welcoming, and we are grateful to have found Fresh Start Chiropractic!

I came to Dr. Fawn in 2010 suffering from lower back pain and a badly injured shoulder. My experience with Dr. Fawn has been wonderful. Regular adjustments keep my pain to a minimum so that I can do the things that I love to do.

Dr. Fawn’s guidance has allowed me to transition from having regular, debilitating back pain to living a fully active, pain-free lifestyle. Thanks, Dr. Fawn, for your continued devotion to excellence.
