1. Initial Consultation
Call (360) 571-3464 to schedule your
consultation. Plan for an appointment of 35 - 45 minutes.
In your initial consultation with Advantage
Chiropractic we will spend some time talking about your specific health
history and expectations. Most patients come to us with a specific
concern they would like to have treated, so we will discuss what the impact
of chiropractic care might be on that symptom.
An examination will be made by Doctor Kozy,
including Xrays, if necessary. Any questions you have will be answered and an
appointment will be scheduled for you to review the results of the
examination with Dr. Kozy.
2. Exam Review and Adjustment
At your second appointment the results of
your examination will be shared, including a review of your x-rays.
The doctor will explain whether or not chiropractic is a realistic treatment
method for your condition, the kinds of results seen by other patients with
similar situations, and certain expectations you might have from a
chiropractic approach toward health.
A specific adjustment procedure will be done
during this appointment. This is done to correct or alleviate a
subluxation that is contributing to the symptoms described. A
treatment recommendation is made which includes the costs, time frames and
number of appointments the doctor feels will be necessary to restore health.
3. Protocol Recommendation
Your third appointment begins with an
examination by the doctor to see how your body responded to the adjustment
made at the prior meeting. Depending on the results, the protocol that
was recommended at the second appointment will be confirmed, or modified if
At this time you will discuss the terms of
the treatment plan and the payment schedule or methods you would like to
4. Treatment Plan
Your treatment plan may call for adjustments
on a regular basis over a period of months. In many cases, the
symptoms of dis-ease are the result of subluxation(s) that have occurred in
the spine for months or even years. Restoring the alignment to its
healthy state can't be done in a very short time.
