What to Expect on Follow Up Visits

When you choose to continue your chiropractic care your follow up visits will last approximately 20 - 30 minutes and will be similar to the treatment protocol of the first visit. There will be a short question and answer period to see how the prior visit went, a follow up spinal exam and then treatment.

Treatment will follow basically the same protocol as in the initial exam. Each individual will receive physiotherapy (moist heat, ice, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Microcurrent etc.) and massage to help relax your muscles before the adjustment.

Several different techniques may be utilized for the adjustment, including DIVERSIFIED and/ or ACTIVATOR technique. Generally an adjustment is a light force directed into the spine at a specific angle and pressure to relieve and eliminate spinal nerve stress.

If requested Dr. Bailey will eliminate the therapy and massage, but he feels it is very beneficial in the healing process as it speeds up recovery time.
