Arrowhead Clinic, a chiropractic clinic based in Atlanta, Georgia, has announced that they have recently published a blog post on the five things first-time visitors to a chiropractor can expect. The article is titled, “First Time Visiting a Chiropractor? Here are 5 Things You Can Expect.” According to the article, the procedures utilized by experienced chiropractors are as follows: consultation and patient intake; physical exam; treatment plan; first chiropractic adjustment; and follow up. These are the things that patients can expect during their first visit to the chiropractor at Arrowhead Clinic.
Johnny Brown, a spokesperson for Arrowhead Clinic, says, “If you're considering chiropractic treatment for the first time, and you don't quite know what to expect, that's completely normal and understandable. Chiropractic care is consistently evolving to include more up-to-date techniques and strategies that will ultimately help patients achieve the pain relief they need. The procedures used by experienced chiropractors help to assess, track and modify each patients treatment plan as needed. Our latest blog post is designed to let you know what you can expect from our chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic.”
According to the article, when first-time visitors arrive at the Arrowhead Clinic, they will be requested to complete a questionnaire, which will help them assess the current health situation of the patient. This will also inform them about the patient’s medical history, including any isolated injuries or chronic problems that the patient may be experiencing. The chiropractor will also want to know what the patient does for a living, physical activities, and the reason for visiting the chiropractor. It is during this patient intake session that the patient has the best opportunity to reveal anything of importance about the pain, health goals, and medical history.
It should also be noted that the chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic can help runners alleviate low-back pain. Those who have suffered sports injuries can see a chiropractor to get help in restoring their body’s full range of motion, as well as assist in preventing future injuries. Chiropractors at the clinic advise athletes to seek medical help as soon as possible after they have experienced any pain or discomfort after a sport or physical activity. Failure to do this can increase the risk of further damage to the body, which could affect their ability to participate in sports in the future.
Chiropractic care can help in treating injuries of the muscles and joints in the neck, back, shoulders, knees, and ankles. The chiropractors at the clinic are experienced and knowledgeable on manual adjustments of the spine, which relieves tension in the body. Athletes often suffer from pains and injuries as a result of over-training, sudden impacts, improper stretching and warming up, and repetitive motions.
Meanwhile, first-time visitors, after the patient intake session, undergo a physical exam. The doctor will test the patient’s muscle strength, reflexes, pulse, blood pressure, and range of motion. The chiropractor will then examine the entire spine to look for that specific area that is relevant to the pain being experienced.
Next, a treatment plan is developed that is specifically suited to the patient’s needs. Adjustments to this plan may also be made if needed, for instance, if the patient has started to recover more quickly than predicted. After that, the first chiropractic adjustment is often done on the same day as the consultation and physical exam. Before performing the adjustment, the doctor will first discuss the various steps to be taken during each adjustment. After the adjustment, patients are often advised to walk around the office for several minutes to see how they are feeling.
Arrowhead Clinic was established by Dr. Harry W. Brown, D.C., who is a native of Atlanta, Georgia and a graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic. He opened his first chiropractic office in Savannah, GA in 1977. In 1979, he moved back to Atlanta and opened his second chiropractic office in Jonesboro, Georgia. Currently, Arrowhead Clinic has 15 chiropractic clinics in the Athens, Atlanta, Hinesville, Savannah, and Brunswick areas.
