First Visit at Central Indiana Chiropractic in Franklin, IN
Any new experience, especially when it comes to your health, can be unnerving. We understand this might also apply to patients who are new to chiropractic and we will make every effort to make your first experience very comfortable. Our friendly staff and Dr. Harris will answer all questions you might have about chiropractic or our approach to non-invasive medical care, and we will address any concerns you may have. We recommend for your first appointment, you arrive fifteen minutes early to complete the required paperwork. A couple of the forms are available under the tab "Our Practice" to print and fill out before you come. A complete health history is the first step for any new chiropractic patient. We will ask about old injuries, chronic problems, and your current symptoms.
- What are your sensitive or painful areas?
- When did the pain start?
- What caused the pain?
In addition, Dr. Harris might inquire about your family history, dietary habits, job or work habits, and previous treatments for the current condition (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.). After reviewing the health history, the doctor will discuss his findings with you and determine how your condition could best be treated. If the doctor feels chiropractic will help you, then (and only then) will he recommend a treatment plan - or if conditions allow, discuss a choice of treatment options.
At Central Indiana Chiropractic, treatments will be tailored to your specific needs-addressing your specific health problems and personal concerns. Aside from adjustments, other therapeutic methods, exercise programs, or home care remedies may be recommended.
If you have any questions about chiropractic or other drug-free and natural health treatments, please call us.
