Your First Visit. At your first visit Dr. Betz will sit down with you and listen to what your health complaint is. Then he will examine you to determine the cause of your health complaint. The visit will last about an hour. If x-rays are necessary, Dr. Betz has digital x-rays available at his office. The examination will include vitals, computerized thermal testing of the spine, spinal exam, posture assessment, and orthopedic and neurological examinations. Many patients mention that it is the most thorough exam they have ever had.
Your Second Visit. On your second visit Dr. Betz will go over your x-ray findings (if taken), explain what the chiropractic adjustment will be and answer any questions you have before you receive your first adjustment. Dr. Betz will do before and after assessments of objective measurements to measure what corrections took place during the adjustment. The first adjustment is vital to projecting what kind of care plan would work best for your individual body’s needs. Based on your history, exam, x-rays and results from your first adjustment, Dr. Betz will put together an individualized treatment plan to support you in reaching your health goals.
Regular Visits. During the initial phase of your treatment plan you will come in more often for chiropractic care. As you improve, you will need to come in less often and can begin doing exercises to help yourself at home. Once your condition stabilizes, and you have reached your health goals, Dr. Betz will transition you into wellness / maintenance care. Just like regular cleanings are important to maintain the health of your teeth, maintenance appointments are important to maintain the health of your spine. Remember, you can replace your teeth but you cannot replace your spine!
