New Patient Visit:
Duration: 60 minutes
Chiropractors are portal-of-entry providers, which means patients do not need a referral from a Medical Doctor to see a Chiropractor. With that being said, your first appointment will begin with a thorough conversation about your past medical history. Additionally, your Chiropractor will perform a variety of orthopedic and neurological tests depending on your chief complaint. The point of this is to 1.) rule out any red flags and 2.) determine an accurate diagnosis.
After a diagnosis is determined and no further diagnostic testing is required, a treatment plan will be presented and initiated at your first appointment.
Duration: 30 minutes
Follow-up visits will consist of a quick 5-minute discussion about your progress to date. The remainder of your appointment will be strictly treatment based in accordance with your treatment plan.

Q: What is the “popping” sound?
A: The popping sound is the result of little gas bubbles that are formed in a joint being released. When you are adjusted, the joint opens up and allows those bubbles to escape.
Q: If there is no noise when I’m adjusted, does that mean it didn’t work?
A: No! As a matter of fact, most of the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment are a result of reintroducing movement into a restricted joint. This occurs with or without the sound. Although many find the sound satisfying, it is not essential for the benefit of our treatment.
Q: Once I start seeing a chiropractor, will I have to continue forever?
A: Absolutely not. Our goal at Salute Spine and Strength is to help you get better and back to your life as fast as we can. We design our treatment plans to help patients go through all the steps of recovery. These include decreasing pain, increasing their strength and mobility, and in many cases, training them for a return to sport. Many patients choose to come in for regular maintenance care because of how great they feel after treatment; however, this is a choice the patient makes based on their lifestyle and needs.
Q: Can chiropractic benefit me if I don’t have any injuries or obvious pain?
A: Yes! Chiropractic care can truly benefit everyone. Even those who are not suffering from pain may benefit from a proper functional assessment and chiropractic care. This is because biomechanical imbalances can lead to injuries in the future. Our doctors are trained to perform a full functional exam and determine any imbalances that may predispose you to suffer an injury in the future. If we can proactively address those issues, we can help you perform at your highest level and keep you injury-free.
Q: I came in with knee pain, and you treated mostly my hips. Why?
A: Everything in the body is connected, and even though your symptoms manifested in your knee, your hip may be the source of the pain. In many cases, the dysfunction that leads to your symptoms is either above or below the actual point of pain. Our functional assessments guide us to the root cause of your problem. If we only treated the symptoms directly, the pain would continue to return.
Q: I am not comfortable getting my neck adjusted, can you still help with my neck pain?
A: Absolutely! We understand that some individuals would prefer they don’t get their necks adjusted. One of the things that make Salute Spine and Strenth so versatile is all the techniques our doctors are trained in to help you with. Soft tissue muscle work, cold laser, and rehab exercises are all very powerful tools to help manage neck pain. They can be used in addition or on their own to help you overcome any neck pain you might be experiencing.
