Whether you are looking to improve your athletic performance or achieve another health goal, our aim is to provide you with the building blocks for a strong foundation.
What to Expect from Your First Appointment
On your initial visit to Foundations, we will be learning about you and your health concerns. Your chiropractor will sit down with you to discuss your primary health concern, as well as your general health history. They will then complete a thorough physical examination, so that they can provide you with an accurate diagnosis. From there, they will develop a plan of management that is specifically designed to meet your individual needs. We love it when you ask questions during this time – so please, ask away!
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first appointment to fill in paperwork, or we can email you the forms, and you can fill them out in advance.
Also, please bring with you:
- Appropriate clothing for the area you wish to be examined (i.e. Shorts for a knee or leg injury, tank top for a shoulder injury, etc.)
- Imaging (x-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound) reports pertaining to an injury
- A list of medications you are currently taking
Your first appointment will typically take between 45 minutes to one hour, and treatment will usually commence on the first visit. However, complex cases may require a more extensive health history, physical examination, and/or further testing to be performed. In these cases, treatment may begin on the second visit.
How the Treatment Works
Our chiropractors at Foundations will develop a personalized treatment plan that involves using a manual approach to improve and optimize your health and best meet your specific needs.
Chiropractors treat everything from your head to your toes. They are trained to diagnose and treat injuries to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves.
Your personalized treatment plan may also include joint manipulation/mobilizations, soft tissue therapy such as ART® or Graston®, modalities (Interferential current, ultrasound, or laser), lifestyle changes, and/or rehabilitative exercises to help prevent a reoccurrence and to improve health or performance.
