What to Expect on your First Visit

Your first visit to Back to Health Chiropractic & Wellness should be a positive experience that leaves you ready to tell your friends in Winona. We greet all our clients with smiling, friendly faces. You can even expect to be offered a refreshing cup of tea or lemon water. Our waiting room is often filled with a variety of clients including families and children. Our clinic is intentionally designed to be wide open to handle the bustle of activity in the waiting room area. Our treatment rooms on the other hand are private and moderately sound-proof for your convenience. Our goal is to be your Chiropractor of choice in Winona. Below is a quick overview of how your first visit will look.

We’ll ask you to complete some brief paperwork when you arrive at the office that provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.

Online Forms

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor. This time will be used to discuss your health-related problems, concerns and potential treatment options.

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. A number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home.  These instructions may include ice or heat application, activities or position avoidance, or home exercises and/or stretches.

Our reception staff will help you schedule a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. On average, most of our patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.

Back to Health Chiropractic & Wellness is committed to your health and well-being. We want to be your home away from home. But we will not over-treat or set you up on a drawn-out treatment schedule. We will assess your situation and devise a treatment plan that fits for you. If we are not seeing results within the first few visits we’ll refer you to our network of trusted medical professionals in Winona.
