Upon your return to Freedom Health Centers for your second visit, or what Our Team calls the “Report of Your Findings”, we greet you warmly and ask you to sign in at the front desk. The staff then brings you to the Report of Findings room where you watch a brief video explaining what we are going over that day.
Once the video finishes, Our Team enters the room and tells you immediately if we feel Chiropractic can help you or not. If not, we direct you to the most qualified health professional to treat your condition. If we feel Chiropractic can help you, we review what we found in your exam and explain the insights provided by your nervous system scans and x-rays.
Treatment Plan & Financial Investment
Our Team shows you what we have planned for your treatment, including what will be done and how many visits are needed, because chiropractic takes time to produce the desired results. Just like putting braces on your teeth to straighten them out, you could not expect to take them off the next day and find your teeth corrected. Chiropractic is also an incremental therapy which achieves long-term results in stages.
Our staff discusses the financial investment in your health and if there is any insurance involved. You will know all costs associated with your care before you start. We generally create a financial plan for you so you can get the most out of your care and save money. We find that, if our patients do a financial plan, care goes much better and they are more committed as we focus only on the care and not the finances. However, you always have a choice if you want to do a plan or pay visit-to-visit.
Your First Adjustment
After reviewing your treatment plan, we have a couple of housekeeping items to take care of, including signing some permission and privacy forms. Our Team is then ready to give you your first adjustment. We explain that people typically respond to their first adjustment in one of three ways:
- You may feel great — That’s excellent!
- You may not feel much change – this is the norm as many problems take time to change.
- You may feel not as good – this is just like going into a gym for the first time in a while, you may be sore.
If you are to receive any other therapies that day, including rehabilitation, cold laser, massage, muscle stimulation, or intersegmental traction, you do so after your first adjustment. Our Team may give you some instructions to follow at home before you check out with the front desk and continue on your way. You should reserve about 45 minutes for this visit.
