All of us at Healthwise Chiropractic want to make your first visit (and all the others) as wonderful and welcoming as possible. If this is your first appointment with a chiropractor, we are eager to help you prepare for a great experience. Look through the following information, and, as always, just call if you have any questions for us.
Chronic Pain Relief? Sports, Work or Personal Injury?
To make things quick and easy for you, please print and fill out the applicable forms (below), then bring them to your first appointment. These forms help us better understand your chiropractic care needs—whether it’s relief for chronic pain, treatment for a work, sports or personal injury, or pediatric care. Fill these out as thoroughly as possible. If you have questions, just call us: 818-551-9700.
Consultation and Examination with Your Chiropractor
Our office staff will receive your forms and then you’ll have a consultation with your chiropractor, Dr. Issagholyan. She will ask you many questions about your injury, how it happened, your medical history, etc. You’ll also receive a thorough, multi-faceted exam, including:
- Tests specialized to determine the nature and root cause of your pain or injury.
- X-rays may also be necessary to determine if there are other underlying causes we need to know about and to create the most precise, effective treatment plan for you.
First Visit Treatment
After our chiropractor evaluates your tests and medical history, you’ll also receive the most appropriate initial treatment for your condition. Your first treatment may include:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Physiotherapy (soft-tissue treatments)
Before you leave, your chiropractor will discuss at-home therapies to continue, and you can schedule your next appointment with our friendly staff.
Chiropractic care is a very collaborative treatment approach to pain and injury—your participation in the healing process is essential! Make sure to follow any daily ergonomics, heat/ice, exercise or stretching instructions Dr. Issagholyan provides so you can heal more quickly. As you do so, you’ll discover the amazing answers to some of the most frequently asked questions in person (you can also learn more by clicking through to our FAQ).
