When you first come to Neighborhood Chiropractic and Acupuncture, you will be asked to complete our general intake form. There may be additional paperwork for acupuncture visits, motor vehicle accidents, work injuries, or insurance-specific forms.
The initial visit with the chiropractor will start with a thorough history, then a physical exam and treatment, and will end with recommendations specific to your condition and treatment plan.
The initial visit with the acupuncturist will start with a thorough history, then an assessment of your pulse which may include a brief exam, then a discussion of your diagnosis and treatment. You can expect about 20 minutes of acupuncture treatment during this first visit.
During your initial massage, your massage therapist will ask you to discuss with them your current complaints and will then begin your massage.
If you have never seen a chiropractor, acupuncturist, or massage therapist before, feeling nervous is reasonable. Your providers will explain what they are doing, check with you to make sure that you are comfortable, and discuss options that feel right to you.
