What to Expect

When you first enter Four Winds Chiropractic, you’ll feel as if you’re walking into your family room. That’s because Dr. Jeff and his staff want you to feel like family; they desire to put you at ease. You can count on being greeted with a big smile.

Before You Visit

When you call to schedule an appointment, we’ll send you a package of information about what you can expect when you visit us. This can be sent via email or regular mail, whichever is most convenient for you. You can fill out your paperwork at home and send it back to us before your appointment. Please read through the information provided here to get an overview of what each visit with us is like.

Getting to Know You and Your Concerns

We’ll already have your completed paperwork when you come in, so we’ll just have you sign a couple of forms and then you’ll go back and meet Dr. Jeff. He’ll sit down and talk with you to get a thorough health history. Then you’ll have an examination. If needed, we’ll send you to a nearby facility to have X-rays taken.

You’ll receive your first adjustment on this day. Please plan on being here for about an hour. You can bring a list of medications you take along with any medical reports or imaging you might have, including lab results. It’s best if you wear loose clothing and avoid wearing a skirt or dress, but we also keep clothes here at the office you can use if you’re not able to change before you come in.

Your Follow-up Visits

On your second visit, Dr. Jeff will present you with his report of findings. He’ll review the results of your examination, discuss how you’re responding to your first adjustment and answer any questions you might still have.

When you come in for your routine appointments, you’ll have a scan to identify any problem areas in your body. Then you’ll receive your next adjustment. We’ll also discuss exercises and stretches with you that you can do on your own to help your body. Your health goals are important to us, so we’ll work towards those with you, whether it be weight loss, quitting smoking, or getting off your medications.

Continuing With Care

Many people wonder how long they’ll need to continue seeing us. Chiropractic isn’t based on treating your symptoms like traditional medicine is. What we’re working toward, is your optimal health. We’ll begin to space your visits out as your body holds an adjustment for longer periods. Your wellness plan could involve visits every three months or once a month depending on your body’s response.

We also look at how you’re helping your own healing in other areas of your life, such as exercising, eating and sleeping. “Doctor” in Latin means “Teacher,” and our goal is to teach you how to figure out when your body isn’t working optimally. Then, you can schedule with us accordingly. Regular checks will make sure your nervous system is working and keep you as healthy as possible.
