Building a Strong Foundation for Optimal Health
Your First Visit
After your chat, Dr. Llaird LIkens will conduct a comprehensive chiropractic examination that tests posture, reflexes, flexibility, range of motion and more. He will apply standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests as well. Dr. Likens will explain what he is doing as he goes to help you feel comfortable and informed.
Dr. Likens may also take X-rays, depending on your condition and examination. X-rays give more details and help Dr. Likens to develop an effective treatment plan with as much information as possible. X-rays also alert him to any serious spinal conditions. In addition, Dr. Likens can use X-rays to explain why you’re feeling the way you do. Since so many of us are visual learners, this can be very helpful for patients as they can start to see their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
After the consultation, examination and possible X-rays, Dr. Llaird Likens will be able to explain what is causing your symptoms, pain and other conditions. He will develop and explain your custom chiropractic care treatment plan that includes how exactly he can help, how often your treatments need to be and any cost you may incur. Dr. Likens will also give you recommendations to other providers should it be necessary.
Now comes the fun part! At the end of your appointment, you can choose to receive your first treatment and finally feel relief! Depending on your condition, this may include a variety of treatments including spinal adjustments, therapy, stretches and trigger point release. Your comfort is a top concern for Dr. Llaird Likens, so you can feel free to express any concerns during treatment and Dr. Likens can adjust accordingly.
Before you leave, you will receive a wellness program to begin using in between treatments. This wellness program may include home stretches or exercise, the use of ice or heat application and advice on activities or positions to avoid. It will also include lifestyle and nutrition advice that can help you feel better. The goal of your unique wellness plan will be for you to increase your overall health and achieve good spinal alignment..
