What to Expect
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful practice member relationships is to explain everything in advance. The more you understand about your spine, nerve system and its relationship to your overall health, the better you’ll be armed at preventing any unnecessary relapses or degenerative changes. It’s as simple as that.
Your First Visit
Typically, your first visit will be approximately one hour. You can shorten your appointment time by filling out paperwork ahead of time, which is available here on our website. If however you don’t have a chance to fill that out prior to your visit, never fear that will only take a few minutes upon arriving. At that time our trained staff can also assist in verifying any insurance benefits you may have, so you’ll want to have your insurance card with you.
A trained and certified member of our staff will get your detailed history. This is so the doctor has a clear understanding of your past and present complaints as well as any pertinent health history. Madison Chiropractor, Dr. Anunson will then consult with you regarding your primary goals and purpose for your visit to determine the next step. Following consultation, the doctor will proceed with the examination. At that time our exam tech will also complete a Myovision exam, which allows us to test for imbalances in your spine.
Depending on what Dr. Anunson finds during the exam, it may be necessary to x-ray the spine. If so, this is most often completed the same day with minimal delay.
Following the exams Dr. Anunson will report with you his exam findings and outline a solution if he deems chiropractic can help. If after relating those findings, you’re ready to begin care, we can start care the same day. Dr. Anunson will then explain his adjustment procedures, addressing any questions you may have and prepare you for an adjustment.
