Your First Visit at Boise Chiropractic in Boise, ID
Any new experience, especially when it comes to your health, can be unnerving. We understand this might also apply to patients who are new to chiropractic and we will make every effort to make your first experience very comfortable.
Our friendly staff and Dr. Tod Spainhower will be happy to answer all questions you might have about chiropractic or our approach to non-invasive medical care, and we will address any concerns you may have. We recommend for your first appointment, you arrive fifteen minutes early to complete the required paperwork. A complete health history is the first step for any new chiropractic patient. We will ask about old injuries, chronic problems, and your current symptoms.
What are your sensitive or painful areas?
When did the pain start?
What caused the pain?
In addition, Dr. Tod Spainhower might inquire about your family history, dietary habits, job or work habits, and previous treatments for the current condition (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.). After reviewing the health history, the doctor will discuss his findings with you and determine how your condition could best be treated. If the doctor feels chiropractic will help you, then (and only then) will he recommend a treatment plan – or if conditions allow, discuss a choice of treatment options.
At Boise Chiropractic, a long-time Idaho chiropractor, treatments will be tailored to your specific needs-addressing your specific health problems and personal concerns. Aside from adjustments, other therapeutic methods, massage techniques, or home care remedies may be recommended.
