At Lighthouse Chiropractic, your health is important to us. For that reason, we provide thorough and individualized care. While everyone has a unique presentation and variety of reasons for visiting our office, we have a standard first visit to make sure we have all the information we need to proceed with care.
While ultimately we are going to check your spine for misalignments called " Vertebral Subluxation " (click on this link for more information on subluxations), we want to make sure you receive any referrals to other health care practitioners that may be necessary.
Your first visit will last about 1 hour depending on the complexity of your case. To decrease this time you may fill out your Confidential Health History ahead of time and bring it with you. To begin, we will explain what chiropractic care is so you are as informed as possible. Then Dr. Heyn will go over your presentation and medical history. After this, Dr. Heyn will perform a thorough neurological, orthopedic, range of motion, and spinal examination.
Using these examination procedures is much more accurate than just depending on "how you feel" on any given day. We can then tailor a plan that is specific to your needs and goals.
