What to Expect

Prior to your Initial Visit:

After gathering pertinent information to book your first appointment, we will send you our Chiropractic Intake Forms via email if they have not already been filled out. The more detailed your answers are, the more we will be able to help!

Initial Visit: 

When you arrive to our office, you will be cheerfully greeted and receive a tour of our office. After we gather a few signatures for HIPPA and a brief educational video has been viewed, one of our Chiropractic Assistants will take you in to our examination room to gather a full, comprehensive background history for your condition or challenge. Dr. Kirshner will then meet with you to begin your consultation and examination, addressing your health goals and answering any questions you may have. After your examination, x-rays will be conducted to provide a complete scope of your symptoms to best customize your care plan accordingly. Once your x-rays have been developed, Dr. Kirshner will adjust you with the manipulation that is most ideal for your condition. The entire appointment takes roughly 45-60 minutes, so please plan accordingly. 

Report of Findings:

Once you come in for your second visit, Dr. Kirshner will have thoroughly reviewed all information gathered as well as studied your x-rays further in depth. He will explain the results of the x-rays and what the next, best steps will be for you. We are passionate about educating our patients so please ask as many questions as you need to feel completely comfortable. This appointment usually last around 30-45 minutes. After all your questions are answered, you will receive your second adjustment!

Laying the foundation

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

Success Stories

  • "I decided to try Chiropractic care for the upper, middle and lower back pain I was having. It has been ongoing for two or more years all while being treated by my PCP. I was only prescribed pain meds which only worked while in my system. All my activities were limited, if I was even able to get out and do anything at all. I was taking pain meds daily for 4-6 hours and once the meds wore off the pain came right back and was more severe. After only six weeks of Chiropractic care, I am more active with my little ones. They like to go for walks and play at the park. I would most definitely recommend Chiropractic care. The service I receive is amazing. I only wish I had come in sooner because now, there are no more pain meds for me and I feel like a totally different person!"

  • "Yesterday, I came into the office with a lot of pain. My back/hip was bothering me and making my leg fall asleep. My shoulder hurt and my hands were falling asleep with carpal tunnel. Dr. Kirshner adjusted me and used his laser on my back, shoulder and hand. My back feels great, no pain and my leg has not fallen asleep! My shoulder hurts a little, but at least I can move and rotate it without so much pain. As for my hand, the swelling seems to have gone down and I was able to sleep through the night without it waking me. I am grateful that my pain is gone. Thank you for all you do for me!"
