For many people, a visit to Tier One Chiropractic is vastly different from what they experience with other medical providers. From the moment you step into our office, the focus is on encouraging you to feel comfortable and at ease. This aesthetic is reflected not only in our attitude and decor but in how the patients visiting our office typically dress. Our Bellevue chiropractors provide hands-on service, but that does not mean you will need to get undressed or put on an uncomfortable and revealing hospital gown, which is often required at other doctors’ offices. Instead, you will find patients dressed in a variety of leisure type outfits, designed to be more conducive to their chiropractic visit.
Our Hands-On Approach
Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. By gently applying pressure and encouraging different joints and parts of the spine back into their normal, natural positions, chiropractic care can reduce inflammation, eliminate pain, and restore movement throughout the body.
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) reports that there are numerous studies showing that chiropractic care can also help reduce a surprising number of other symptoms caused by chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, and autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia. Once the bones and structures throughout the body are properly aligned, patients are often surprised not only at how much better overall they feel, but how their general health tends to improve.
In aligning these structures, chiropractors generally rely on hands-on techniques, such as spinal manipulation and massage. Depending on your condition and the results of any examinations, areas your chiropractor is likely to focus on include joints, bones, and muscles in the back, neck, arms, legs, and feet. While our specialists can perform these tasks either through or around your clothes, wearing an outfit to your visit that is loose fitting is helpful.
What to Wear (and Not to Wear) to Your Visit
At Tier One Chiropractic, we want you to get the most out of your visit. One of the ways you can ensure this is by dressing appropriately. You will likely be lying or sitting on a padded table while the chiropractor examines you and makes any needed adjustments. To ensure your comfort and increase your doctor’s access, we recommend the following tips:
- Wear simple, loose clothing, such as a yoga or track pants and a large flowing top or t-shirt.
- Avoid excess layers, which can be restricting and reduce access;
- Wear comfortable shoes that you can easily slip on and off;
- Avoid high heels, which can throw your posture back out of alignment after your visit;
- Leave bulky jewelry, such as dangling earrings or bulky watches and necklaces, at home.
