Patients visiting Pinnacle Family Chiropractic for the first time are often curious as to what the process is and what to expect on their first chiropractic visit. Learn what to expect and read a step-by-step process regarding what you will experience on your first visit with Dr. Chris Buccieri at Pinnacle Family Chiropractic in Wilmington, NC.
Step 1: New Member Application
Step 2: Tour the Office
When you come in to visit, we’ll take you on a tour of the office, explaining what we do, our methods, how they help and why. This will help you to feel more at home here and develop an understanding of what principled chiropractic is.
Step 3: Consultation
Following the tour, you’ll sit down with a team member for a special one-on-one healthcare consult. We will talk about your current issues, past health concerns, goals for recovery, and other healthcare history issues so we can provide the very best healthcare.
Step 4: Specific, Scientific, Chiropractic Assessment
At this stage, we will perform a complete and scientific physical examination using advanced technology and methods published and certified by NASA and SPACE. Evaluating your nervous system and muscles allows us to discover where pressure and subluxations might be, and how serious they are.
Step 5: Diagnostic Imaging
Step 6: Plan of Care
Once Dr. Chris Buccieri has completed his review of your assessment, examination and diagnosis, a specialized and customized plan of care will be created that is tailored specifically to your individual needs.
Step 7: Doctor Report of Findings
On your follow-up visit, we will sit down with you and present a detailed report of our findings. This will include analysis of your diagnostic imaging and the results of your examination. We will also discuss your customized plan of corrective care and payment options moving forward.
Step 8: The Road to Health
The process of healing is a two-way street, navigated by both Dr. Chris Buccieri and you. In order to experience healthcare improvements, you will need to commit to your appointments and to taking all necessary steps and lifestyle changes needed.
Patience is also essential—while some see improvements right away, others take more time. Understand, too, that at first some temporary stiffness and discomfort are normal. These healing sensations are a sign of your body correcting itself as nervous system function is restored.
