First Visit In Charlotte Chiropractic Office Of Tebby Clinic
Upon entering the office of Chiropractor in Charlotte, expect some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. (Some insurance plans have their own paperwork which they require to be submitted; please bring your insurance card to your first visit.)
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
If yours is not a problem that we believe will respond to Chiropractic Care, we will refer you to the specialist we believe will be the most help for your problems.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instruction, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches to ensure your chiropractic fitness.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
