Your First Visit
If you're a first-time visitor at Woon's Healing Arts Center, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances. Your first visit will typically take one hour.
Please avoid caffiene and be well hydrated prior to your appointment.
You will need to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
If you have copies of prior x-rays, CT or MRI's, please bring them with you to your chiropractic appointment.
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the process. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within one week of their initial visit and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
