Your First Visit
Welcome to Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic! Join our family and meet our dedicated staff as you work towards better health and wellness.
To best serve your needs, we will want you to fill out forms on your complete medical history and get information on your current physical ailments or goals. We will request that you arrive several minutes early to fill out these forms for the doctors.
The consultation itself includes sitting down with our chiropractors, Dr. Jerrilyn Sullivan and Dr. Taryn Terry, to talk about any health-related problems you might be having, as well as concerns about treatment and potential treatment options. This first visit is crucial for helping you get comfortable with Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Terry and determining how chiropractic care would best benefit you.
Once a comprehensive plan is put together on what you want to achieve and how Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Terry best believe this will occur, they will complete a chiropractic examination to check your flexibility, tension and reflexes. Other tests for neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical tests will be performed as a part of your standard examination based on your condition and only with your consent. During the examination, the chiropractors explain the tests and provides you with answers about your current health.
Very often, we take X-rays of our patients during the consultation appointment to ensure we provide accurate care for their condition. X-rays help us develop effective plan and avoid any serious spinal conditions that could be worsened by certain treatments. Often, our patients are shocked and intrigued by the misalignments and degeneration they can see themselves that need chiropractic treatment to heal.
Our patients come to us to find out how we can help them, how often treatments will be scheduled and what they will have to pay out-of-pocket. We know your goals and your means make up a big part of your ability to complete care and seek true wellness. Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Terry will provide you with recommendations for services we offer, as well as any outside providers you may need to get additional treatment from. This detailed report will answer your questions and provide you with all the findings from the X-rays and physical examination.
After receiving your conclusive report, you can choose to have your first treatment immediately or schedule it for a later date. We often find that a mixture of treatments is most effective, so you might find yourself scheduling spinal adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy, exercise rehabilitation and more. We work to start you out with whatever is needed to mitigate your pain and restore your health and then work you down to a lower-intensity level of care that works with your lifestyle to prevent future injury or relapse.
The entire process will be interactive and dependent on your dedication to your personal wellness. We are here to cheer you on and provide the treatments that are sustained by healthy eating, smart exercise and positive lifestyle routines for a strong mental and physical state.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
