What to Expect at our Chiropractic Practice
If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!
The more you understand who we are, what we do, and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
Your First Visit
The goal for the first visit is to get an idea of your health problem, make sure it is something Dr. Steve Milligan can successfully treat, and that it is safe and appropriate for him to treat you.
The doctor will have you complete some paperwork, take your history, review any studies that you may have, and examine you. If Dr. Steve Milligan decides that he has a good chance to help you, he will then will start light force standard chiropractic care. If paperwork is completed prior, allow 40 minutes.
First visit costs range from $130.00 to $ 145.00
X-ray’s and additional services are not included.
Your Second Visit
On the second visit, we will start active care. I do not have a formula
for a patients needed care and rely on my patients' response to schedule
their care. I do not believe in overtreating my patients. Your second
visit takes on average 20 minutes.
On a follow-up visit
With more challenging cases where Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is most appropriate, X-rays, higher math, biophysics, and measurements are needed and take an extended time. See globalao.com for more details.
A Typical Office Visit
Our typical office visit starts with brief paperwork reporting your improvements, or concerns. Dr. Steve Milligan will take a brief history and decide that day’s course of treatment, and future care. The main factor is how much you have progressed overall. Allow 20 minutes.
So, check us out here. Poke around. Get to know us. Then, contact Stephen R. Milligan, DC today to make an appointment.
