If it is your first time at Dr. Siu Chiropractic, we will need some information from you regarding your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is to ensure we can provide you with the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A bit of paperwork
We will need you to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit after the examination is completed. This may include spinal adjustments and the use of adjunctive modalities such as extracorporeal shock wave therapy, interferential current muscle stimulation, laser therapy, and far infrared heat therapy.
Home instructions & exercises
Depending on your condition and progress, you may be given instructions on certain activities or procedures for you to do at home. This may include ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the healing process. In general, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
