Dr. Ulrich and staff at Tier One Chiropractic would like to welcome you in taking your first step to chiropractic well being. You will be joining many friends and neighbors in taking this natural approach to good health.
People come to a chiropractor for many different reasons. Some may visit us with injuries from a fall, car accident or work accident. Others come to us with fibromyalgia, stress conditions, asthma, or other health complaints. Still others arrive with spinal, neck or back pain. Whatever the reason you are with us, let me assure you that you are important to Dr. Ulrich and we will do everything we can to help you achieve your health goals.
What To Expect At Your First Visit
Brief Paperwork: Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Consultation: 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.
History and Examination: 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.
X-ray Studies: 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.
Same Day Treatment: 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.
Home Instructions: 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 instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
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.
