WHAT TO EXPECT
AT BEREZNY CHIROPRACTIC
Expect Something Positively Different
Whether you are familiar with chiropractic care or this is your first time, you can expect your visit to Berezny Chiropractic to be new and different from any other healthcare experience you've had before. Perhaps even life-changing.
For starters, we seek to be convenient for you and your schedule. We offer evening hours and even appointments on the weekend. You are not required to have insurance to receive care immediately, since we also make available cash options for our patients. While you may experience a short wait before seeing your doctor, wait times are nothing like you may have experienced at other healthcare facilities. Wait times at Berezny Chiropractic are minimal and typically just enough time to complete your initial paperwork, which will be used by your chiropractors to get a better idea of your health history and current needs.
During your first visit, your chiropractor will explain how joint dysfunction may occur, its impact on health and overall wellness, how chiropractic adjustment is used to correct them, and the numerous benefits that chiropractic has to offer. If this is your first time being adjusted, this is an excellent opportunity to have any questions you may have answered by a knowledgeable, licensed Doctor of Chiropractic.
Your Consultation, Exam, and Adjustment
Your doctor will conduct a thorough consultation and examination. If the doctor determines that you may benefit from chiropractic care, you will be adjusted on a comfortable adjustment table engineered specifically for this purpose. You will remain fully clothed during your adjustment, so we recommend that you wear non-restrictive clothing to make it easier to rest comfortably while lying down on the table and able to maneuver freely during your adjustment. A portion of your adjustment may be performed while you are lying face down on the adjustment table, while other portions may occur while you are either on your side, sitting upright, or lying on your back.
What Is The Popping Noise When An Adjustment Is Delivered?
Trapped between your joints are tiny pockets of gasses. Adjustment often releases these gasses. A chiropractic adjustment does not affect the bones on either side of the joint. It deals with the connective tissue that hold the joint together.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drugless and safest form of health care available. Statistically, patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to traditional medical care, in which the use of prescription drugs and surgery pose a greater risk.
Does It Hurt To Get Adjusted?
Chiropractic adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. Minimal force and gentle pressure are used. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment. Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your first visit can help ease any potential discomfort and promote healing.
How Long Will My Appointment Take?
This all depends on the severity of your current condition. However, most first visits may last as much as 30 minutes. Follow-up visits are often much less burdensome on your schedule, typically lasting only 5 to 10 minutes.
How Often Will I Need To Return?
Your doctor will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. The frequency in which you receive chiropractic care is strictly up to the professional judgement of the Doctor of Chiropractic and will vary from individual to individual depending on your presenting condition and overall health and wellness goals. Just as regular visits with your dentist are necessary for good dental hygiene, routine visits to a Doctor of Chiropractic are also important for proper nervous system and spinal function, as well as overall health maintenance.
