I’ve been asked this question alot more recently... Do I adjust or treat on the first visit?
The answer is yes. It is rare that I don’t. Sometimes there is an indication that an adjustment should not be performed. In these cases I refer them for x-rays that are read by a Medical Doctor/Radiologist then a treatment plan is offered. Our office is in the business of treating pain and getting people back in the game of life. We don’t make you come to classes that teach you to be dependent on a Chiropractor once a month for the rest of your life. The practice of not adjusting on the first visit is a marketing tool taught by practice management groups that help the chiropractor make money. I have never belonged to or utilized a practice management course or service.
My philosophy is when you give people great service they will come to you and refer their friends to you.
If you are hurting and want you to get back to doing what you love, give us a call, no sales pitches required.
We have been providing service to the good people of Rolla MO and Phelps County since 1995.
