What Can I Expect During My First Visit to IN Chiropractic & Wellness?

First Chiropractic Visit Expectations:

On every chiropractic website, the consumer will see a variety of reasons that are meant to influence the reader to chose that office for care. Unfortunately, in today’s chiropractic environment, so many chiropractic “patient novices” end up going to a chiropractor and receiving everything except a much-needed adjustment! Instead, what the chiropractic consumer may find are hours of physical therapy treatments, massage variations, nutrition sales, acupuncture, and dry needling techniques for back pain with a steep price and a year-long program costing thousands of dollars. All of these things are currently very popular and meet with success of varying degrees as they are dependent upon the time required to become skilled in the application itself. Reading on, the following information should give the reader solace in knowing that a viable and affordable solution is available in our office.

IN Chiropractic & Wellness, Inc. provides the patient/client with a series of processes that are centered around the chiropractic adjustment. The adjustment methodology utilized in this office and others across the country was developed by Dr. Todd McDougle after years of experimentation on strength athletes. The technique was designed to enhance their ability to recuperate faster and gain strength immediately post-treatment. In essence, the idea was to avoid the post chiropractic adjustment sensation of being “sprung” as noted by many athletes following the standard side posture applications prevalent in chiropractic offices worldwide.  The side posture method has been a successful staple in chiropractic for generations but over time, there needed to be an adaptation for specific applications and situations that required preservation of the Hoffman’s reflex (1,5). In other words, it was time for chiropractic to have some advancements and Dr. McDougle through years of working with the top strength athletes has discovered that vehicle. Now, these same methods are available and successfully applied to patients of all ages, dysfunctions, and even the needs of post-surgical patients.

Utilization of full spine assessment measures (as taught at Palmer College of chiropractic) in conjunction with radiographic interpretations (developed by Clarence Gonstead, D.C. in the 1950’s), aid the doctor in creating a clinical case correlation with enhanced critical thinking skills for proper interpretation and execution of appropriate measures for a successful outcome for patients of most difficulties, including simple back pain. Today, the many of years of clinical applications combining the past with the present now positively affect the lives of those not just in athletics, but those with scoliosis, post-surgical pain syndromes including those with metal implants, and severe issues with pelvic dysfunction. Our specialty has become that of caring for and treating the most complex and desperate people who want their lives to return to some normalcy.
