What to Expect

Consultation Visit

You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful practice member relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

Your First Visit

When you first arrive at Whitney Chiropractic you will be greeted warmly by our friendly office staff.

After an introduction, the first thing that we will do is ask you to fill out our office forms in the waiting room providing us with detailed information on your health history, current condition and complaints, family history, dietary habits, other care you may have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.). These provide us with the information we need to begun your care. Please answer all of the questions to the best of your ability so that we can better serve you.

From there, you will be taken to our exam room where we will obtain the general history of your condition. The doctor will then perform a physical examination which is required to begin your treatment.

Depending on your condition, an x-ray may be taken if medically necessary. Some other tests that may be ordered if necessary are blood work or special imaging. All of these will aid in the diagnosing and proper treatment. Once the information has been compiled we will proceed with the chiropractic treatment.

Chiropractic Treatment Plan

The doctors will then develop a treatment strategy and management plan. Treatment offered at Whitney Chiropractic include:

  • Highly-effective adjusting approaches
  • Soft tissue techniques such as Graston
  • Rehabilitation therapies
  • Nutritional counseling.

If your condition requires treatments that are not provided at out facility, an appropriate referral will be made.

If at any time you have questions with regard to your care, please feel free to ask or call us to set up an appointment.

Your Second Visit

Report of Findings with Dr. Richard Whitney

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

Upon your second visit to our office the goal is to review your exam findings and correlate this information into a highly effective treatment plan for your specific condition.

A review of your x-ray findings will highlight specific complicating factors that may be present and may affect your treatment length or require further diagnostic testing. After a thorough review of your case, we will initiate your treatment and provide your first chiropractic adjustment. Other adjunctive therapies such as stretching or ultrasound therapy may also be utilized on the day of your first adjustment, to facilitate the treatment process.

Your treatment time of the second day visit is typically around 45 minutes.

Regular Visits

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

Upon initiation of your treatment schedule your routine office visit will typically last 20-30 minutes, and may vary to 45 minutes if rehabilitation is included.

Your office visit may include therapeutic modalities such as electric muscle stimulation, hydrotherapy, traction, myofascial/graston therapy, manipulation, or other modalities designed to aid in the quick resolution of your ailments.

We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.

We are looking forward to meeting you in person and discussing how we can help you get on the road to wellness. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment.
