Your New Patient Chiropractic Series

Day 1: Your First Appointment

Goal Setting, Examination and X-rays

Man extending arm for handshakeYou’ll be welcomed and invited to our consultation area. Your chiropractor can focus solely on what’s on your mind and your health goals. Next, the chiropractor will conduct a specific examination including chiropractic and NUCCA-specific testing. Three precise, low-exposure digital X-rays will be taken to determine the unique imbalances in your spine. These images and the information gathered from the exam will allow us to tailor an individualized adjustment to make the proper corrections in your body.

Day 2: Your Second Appointment

Report of Findings and First Adjustment

When you return on the next day or as soon as you can, your chiropractor will go over a report of their findings and make care recommendations. Then, you’ll experience your first adjustment and how incredible it feels to have a body that’s in balance.

What Can You Expect During an Adjustment?

You’ll lie on a specialized adjusting table, comfortably on your side. The chiropractor will apply a gentle touch behind your ear at a point determined by your X-rays. After this soft correction has been made, your chiropractor will reassess your alignment to confirm that you’re in balance. Once you’re feeling centered, you’ll be invited to sit in the Human Touch zero-gravity lounge chairs in our resting suite.

The Results of Your Experience

After your body has been balanced, you might feel differently. Some report an incredible sense of energy; others crave a nap or can feel subtle changes. Your pain may vanish, or a symptom can occasionally intensify before vanishing. Rest assured that all are normal responses and indicate that your body has gone through a vital shift to start your healing process.

Following Up

Your Third Visit, Second Adjustment and Creating a Plan of Action

Three to five days after you’ve had your first adjustment, we’ll get you scheduled for another adjustment. Based on how you’ve felt thus far, your chiropractor will suggest a plan of action that’s specifically designed to meet your health goals. Together, you’ll go over a series of appointments that help you to achieve your full health potential and live in alignment.

As you progress with care, you’ll gain a deeper body sense and more stability, allowing you to know when you’re out of balance. Soon, you’ll be staying balanced for longer periods, entering a phase we call resiliency. When you have a body that’s resilient, events that used to derail your alignment are corrected from within by your body’s innate abilities.

We’d love the opportunity to get to know you and understand how we can help you meet your goals. Contact our Ashland team today!

Your First Massage Appointment

We are glad you have chosen Wellspring Centre for Body Balance for your health care. When you arrive in the office you will be welcomed by the front desk. If this is your first appointment please complete the Massage Intake Form before you arrive. On the day of your massage you will be oriented to the layout of the office so you are optimally comfortable. Please check in 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for time to take care of administrative duties. At this time feel free to ask any questions about technique, length of time for your massage or cost. It is a good idea to use the restroom and get a drink of water before your session.

The massage therapist will show you to the therapy room. She will review your intake form and ask questions in order to give you the most effective massage for your body. If there is any additional information you would like the therapist to know, now is the time to share that. You will be invited to have your massage in any amount of clothing you are most comfortable. Please note that many sessions include low back work, hip work or upper back and chest work; it may be best to wear minimal to no clothing. The therapist will suggest you begin either face up or down before leaving the room to let you settle onto the table for your session.

The therapist will return to the room shortly to begin the session. Your session will be tailored to align with your health goals. It is always appropriate to voice any requests while on the table. If the pressure is too much or little, if the room is too cold or warm please say so!

After your session the therapist will leave the room, feel free to take your time getting off the table to get dressed. Begin by taking some deeper breathes and slowing bring movement to your fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms, legs and neck. The safest way to get off the table is by gently rolling to one side of your body (without rolling off the table :), let your legs hang off the edge of the table and use your arms to press up to sitting.

When you exit the therapy room please let us know if there is anything you need: water, more resting time, another appointment. There are two zero-gravity recliners in our Resting Room for you to fully integrate the experience of your massage if you would like.
