Your First Visit to Our Mt. Laurel Practice
New patients often remark how “homey” our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.
Make Yourself at Home
On your visit to the clinic you will be greeted at the front desk with a smile. You will have the customary paperwork to fill out (if you haven't done so already).
You will then see Dr. Scheets who will perform a comprehensive history and physical examination. In some cases diagnostic testing like x-rays or MRI's will be prescribed but only if necessary.
Treatment is usually administered the first day. Your first treatment may include one or several modalities that will aid in your chiropractic adjustment. They can include moist heat or cold pack therapy, electric muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, therapeutic stretching and strengthening exercises therapeutic ultrasound and more.
Many patients are also instructed on home care considerations from simple postural changes including pillows and supports to a comprehensive home exercise program. You will feel at ease and welcomed in our clinic. Dr. Scheets and staff will listen to your concerns and tailor a treatment plan that suits your individual needs. Your first visit can last up to one hour depending on the complexity of your needs.
We Explain Everything First
The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.
Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
