What to expect on your first visit to our cutting edge wellness clinic:
Upon entering this facility you will be ushered into a new paradigm of health care. This is not your average Chiropractic or Physical therapy office, nor is it your average fitness studio.
Welcome to Healthier U Jupiter, the only chiropractic facility that uses the collective knowledge and skills of doctors, trainers, and therapists for the complete health care needs of clients in Palm Beach County. Our goal is to identify your family’s health risks and take action to stay healthy naturally. You do not need a referral or any insurance to receive care immediately either. You may experience a short wait before seeing our doctor, but wait times are minimal and usually just enough time to complete your initial paperwork. Your initial paperwork is intended to help us get a better idea of your health history and current needs.
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. During your first visit, your chiropractor will explain how spinal misalignments (subluxations) occur, how chiropractic is used to correct them, and the many benefits chiropractic has to offer.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, 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.
Same Day Treatment
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. Adjustments are given in an open bay area on a comfortably cushioned adjustment table. You will remain fully clothed for the duration of your visit, so we recommend you wear non-restrictive clothing to make it easier to rest comfortably while lying down on the table. A portion of your adjustment will be done while you are face down, while other adjustments may be made while you are either on your side, sitting upright or resting on your back.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, 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.
