Typical follow up visits are usually much shorter than the first.
Don't think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value. All of the information has been gathered and now we can get to the business of getting you out of pain and back to feeling yourself again. The doctor's educated ear is always listening for important indicators to any changes in your presentation, but since the groundwork is laid, he can quickly size up the condition of your spine, adjust you and get you on your way. At the determination of the doctor, other therapeutic procedures such as heat, electric stim and/or a muscle work may be utilized to help you reach your health goals as quickly as possible.
Like dental braces, the adjustments have a cumulative effect and one visit builds on the ones before. However, we recognize and respect that everyone has their own goals and your care plan is always customizable to what you need. We also recognize that your time is valuable and so we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
