What to Expect
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to complete. The paperwork will provide us with general information about yourself along with your condition. If you would like to save some time and prepare the paperwork ahead of time please check our Document section.
History and Examination
In order to determine what the actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, numerous specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and also to what magnitude.
Same Day Treatment
When finished with the examination and all the appropriate studies, patients will generally receive their first gentle treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Everything will be explained and treatment should not be painful. If it is uncomfortable, or even if you just don't like anything we are doing, just say something and we will stop or lighten up immediately. There is more that one way to help you get well and Dr. Moon is an expert.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given with instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This could include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule your next appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are given a complete overview of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
