What to Expect at Langlitz Chiropractic & Massage
We treat everyone the way we would want to be treated ourselves — the way you would want someone to treat your mother.”
When you first come into our office, we want you to know what to expect, especially if you’ve never been a chiropractic patient before.
Whether you’ve seen a chiropractor for years or are taking your first steps on the journey to health, here’s a short description of what will happen during each of your visits with us.
Your First Visit
When you first arrive at Langlitz Chiropractic & Massage you’ll receive a friendly greeting from one of our staff members. We will sit down with you and explain the paperwork you’ll fill out, as well as go over your insurance information with you.
You’ll fill out a health history and a medical records release form. If you have any of your medical records, please feel free to bring them to this appointment.
Next, the doctor will introduce himself to you and sit down to discuss what has brought you in. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have and move forward with the exam feeling fully informed.
- Orthopedic and neurological testing
- Muscle testing, including strength and range of motion
- A review diagnostic test results
We’ll examine what’s going wrong with your body mechanically and discuss it with you, so we can make a plan with you to repair your body and return it to optimal function.
Duration: 20-40 minutes
Your Second Visit
If you needed specialized studies, on your second visit we’ll sit down to discuss the doctor’s findings from your examination and imaging. Otherwise, this will be a routine visit involving chiropractic care and any necessary therapies.
Your Routine Visits
You’ll be seen promptly with little or no waiting time, getting you in and out of the office as quickly as possible so you can get on with your day. You’ll see the doctor for chiropractic care and complete any therapies that are a part of your care plan with us.
We’ll continually communicate with you on each visit so you know what kind of progress you’re making and what the doctor is doing to help your body heal itself.
To bring you greater awareness about your health and body, we have a library of literature and other handouts we’ll share with you.
In this age of technology, we also have plenty of links to give you to check out information online, or we can send you an email letting you know where to find what you’re looking for.
Many of Our Patients Have Asked…
Do I have to see a chiropractor for the rest of my life?
Many people have the idea that if they see a chiropractor once, they’ll have no choice but to continue visiting us forever. Your condition and needs are unique to you, and we will fit your care plan to be exactly what you need.
Some problems are not as severe and will require fewer visits; others may require treatment for a longer duration. Periodic adjustments may be essential to some to stay well. Of course the choice is always yours.
We like to tell our patients that the five most dangerous words in the world are, ‘Maybe it will go away.’ As “spinal hygienists,” we remind our patients that prevention is the best medicine.
We are here to answer any questions or concerns you have about seeking our natural healing care.
