We have many new clients that have come to Arne Wellness Center in Littleton, Colorado for pain relief in not only their backs but other areas of their body and head. While most people come in with no worries, a handful of clients are anxious about their first chiropractic visit. This is understandable, as many people are unsure what to expect from their first chiropractic care visit. We are writing this post to help shed some light on your visit and relieve some pre-chiropractic anxiety.

Assessment
Your first visit will begin with a thorough assessment of your medical history and current condition. This assessment may include questions, documentation, and orthopedic exam, or an x-ray. Once the required information has been acquired, the chiropractor will review the information to make an informed diagnosis.

Plan
The chiropractor will work with you to develop a plan that will help to alleviate your pain and improve your overall health. This plan may strictly include chiropractic care, or expand into acupuncture, massage therapy, spinal decompression, or other forms of natural medicine. Once the methods have been determined, a schedule for visits will be established to help alleviate your pain and maintain your overall health.

Practice
After agreeing upon a wellness plan, we may begin right away. This care may include manual adjustments or low-impact instruments depending on your needs. While some clients experience immediate relief, retraining soft tissue takes time and patience.
