Many new patients are not sure what to expect during their first appointment with a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC). Dr. Lindz will start by taking a patient’s history and then performing a physical examination to develop a working diagnosis. The combination of the history, exam, and diagnostic studies will enable Dr. Lindz to reach a diagnosis, which will help her determine whether chiropractic services and/or myofascial therapy are appropriate for your condition. If she determines you would be more appropriately managed or co-managed by another health care professional, Dr. Lindz will make the proper referral.
Through a process of shared decision-making, you and Dr. Lindz will determine if chiropractic services are right for you. As part of this process, the doctor will explain your condition, recommend a treatment plan and review the risks and benefits of all procedures. Dr. Lindz’s does not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach. There are no cookie-cutter methods - each treatment plan is customized for the patient’s individual needs.
Based on the extent, timing or severity of the patient’s condition, chiropractic interventions may require several visits. Patients may also receive advice on home care, lifestyle modifications, exercise instruction and nutritional advice.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow Dr. Lindz access to the affected treatment areas.
