Your Initial Chiropractic Visit

The initial chiropractic visit, before you start a treatment program, is the most extensive. You may feel apprehensive, but once you know what to expect and once you meet our caring staff, we know your worries will be alleviated. It is very normal to feel concerned about what you may expect during your first few visits. You may have tried other types of pain relief or treatment for your injuries and found that they were unsuccessful, did not provide lasting relief or, worst of all, may have made your symptoms worse. The initial visit, as with all our treatments, is non-invasive and aimed at developing a successful plan of action to manage your pain.

Please read more about our initial visit and, if you have any questions about our chiropractic care in Phoenix, please give us a call at (602) 833-4833.

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, we will welcome you as a member of our Breathe Chiropractic family and you will complete some of our basic patient forms, if you haven’t already done so at home. Our online forms can be found in the New Patient Center menu.

Consultation

In the initial consultation Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once all of the necessary information is gathered and after reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC will discuss recommendations. Dr. Stetzel will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions. He will be able to determine if she feels you would benefit from chiropractic care and outline her suggested plan which include frequency, cost and whether your condition may need coordination with other medical providers.

Our plans are designed to provide the best possible treatment and aimed at achieving optimal wellness for your needs.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. Treatment will include spinal entrainments (Network Spinal) and occasionally Somatorespiratory Integration (SRI). SRI is a specific set of exercises that connect your body, mind and breath by moving you through the 12 Stage of Healing. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
