What You Can Expect As A New Patient

Frequently Asked Questions

What to Expect During Your First Visit with our Watkinsville Doctors 

When you arrive at our clinic, you will need to fill out paperwork which will include a complete medical history and the pain symptoms that you are suffering from. 

Some of the questions we ask include: 

  1. When did the pain begin?
  2. What triggered the pain to start?
    • Were you involved in a personal injury accident?
    • Did you injure yourself in some way? 
  3. Where are you experiencing the pain?
  4. What decreases the pain?
  5. What increases the pain?
  6. Describe the type of pain:
    • Dull
    • Sharp
    • Throbbing
    • Burning
  7. Does the pain come in waves, or is it continuous?

Once we have an understanding of your medical history, we will complete a thorough exam to evaluate your range of motion, muscle tone, and stability. 

The majority of the time our chiropractors require an x-ray exam upon your initial visit. This diagnostic study is done for your safety. Our doctors need to know which vertebrae, discs, and joints in the spine are causing you pain. 

Once your exam is complete and the Doctor has reviewed your diagnostic testing, they will present you with your treatment plan. 

Injuries Treated by Our Watkinsville Chiropractor 

The first step in treating a pain condition or injury is to determine the root of the problem. 

Some of the most common injuries that our Watkinsville Chiropractors treat include the following: 

  • Slipped or Herniated Discs 
  • Sciatic
  • Sports Injuries
  • Whiplash 
  • Knee Injuries 
  • Hip Injuries

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

  • Neck Injuries 
  • Arthritis 
  • Bulging Discs
  • Arthritis
  • Back Injuries 
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Scoliosis
  • Shoulder Injuries 
  • Repetitive Motion Injuries

Once the underlying cause of your pain is identified, you will be given a treatment plan that is designed to relieve your pain symptoms and eliminate your pain. 

Types of Chiropractic Treatment 

All of the treatments performed by our experienced Chiropractors are safe and natural. 

Our Chiropractors focus on correcting spinal misalignments and relieving muscle tension around the injured vertebral body. 

Spinal adjustments correct the structural alignment of the spine and help to improve the body's physical function. 

Our Watkinsville Chiropractors utilize the following techniques to help alleviate pain: 

  • Spinal Decompression - Uses pressure to put bulging and herniated discs back in their natural position.
  • Spinal Adjustment - Realigns the vertebrae of the spine and reduces pain in the muscles and joints. 
  • Pelvic Stabilization Drills - Is used to stabilize the pelvis and correct a walking gait. This is used in patients who suffer from leg length deficiency, flat feet, and subtalar instability. The Doctor may prescribe a small lift to place in the shoe's heel on the short leg side. 
  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy - Helps patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms and cramping. 
  • Ergonomics Training - Recommendations on how to modify your workstation or sleeping positions in order to decrease pain.
  • Flexion-Distraction Technique - Gentle, hands-on pumping action on the intervertebral disc.
  • Instrument-Assisted Manipulation - A spring-loaded instrument allows your chiropractic doctor to non-manually apply force without thrusting into the spine.

 

Adjusting a spinal joint may (but not always) result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints called a cavitation, which makes a popping sound.

The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles.

This natural noise is caused by a sudden decrease in pressure within the joint, which results in dissolved gasses in the joint fluid to be released. It is completely harmless.

Health Care Benefits of Chiropractic Care 

Chiropractic Care is an all-natural method used for reducing pain and healing the body. 

Some of the largest health benefits of chiropractic care include: 

  • Improves Posture 
  • Increases Energy 
  • Improves Quality of Sleep 
  • All-Natural Treatment Options
