Welcome! Going to the chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe you have heard through a friend or have done some research online. If you are tired of with living in pain and traditional methods are not working, it is time to do something about it. Chiropractic care is your best chance at recovery. Your first visit to Farifax Sports Chiropractic & Rehab will be mostly about getting to know the doctor and discussing your history, current condition, and goals. You can depend on us to provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
New Patient Application
We will need you to fill out forms that provide general information about your background, medical history, and condition. If you cannot print these forms, it is perfectly fine. Come into the office and we will have the forms ready for you! Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork at any time.
In addition to paperwork, some information on what to expect from the first visit when you meet with the doctor is available below.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you can discuss any health-related issues, concerns, and expectations. You will also learn about potential treatment options. If you are unsure if a chiropractor is right for you, contact us to get a FREE consultation!
History and Examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. Once this is complete, you and the doctor will take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the physical exam.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in assessing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Together, we'll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward. Patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit after the examination and x-rays are completed. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises. Wellness tips and excercise videos are available under Patient Resources.
Scheduling the Next Appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the process. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
Some insurance plans cover chiropractic care. We accept auto accident, workers compensation, personal injury and most health insurance plans. Since there are so many plans and coverage varies widely, please call us at 703-273-2792 to find out if your plan covers care in our office. Our staff will verify and explain your benefits before treatment, at no charge. If you're paying out of pocket, we will find a payment plan that fits your budget. We want all our patients to receive the best treatment possible.
