Chiropractic Care and Your First Visit
Tarpon Total Health Care’s Devotion to YOUR Total Health
Learn about what happens on your visit with our chiropractor and chiropractic care at Tarpon Total Health Care in Tarpon Springs, FL.
Tarpon Total Health Care Patient Forms
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you to a chiropractic office as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a chiropractic consultation with Dr.John Huy to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Huy to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine if you will be accepted as a patient for Chiropractic care.
After your consultation our chiropractor, Dr. Huy will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Chiropractic examination also consists of standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
X-Ray and Digital Motion X-rays
Depending on your specific condition, our chiropractor may take X-rays or Digital Motion X-rays as well. This imaging will help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their mis-alignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed by our chiropractor, Dr. Huy will give you a detailed report of all findings. Before beginning chiropractic care, Dr. Huy will answer all of your questions.
Some of the Questions Our Chiropractor and Staff Will Answer:
- What is wrong with me?
- How can chiropractic care help me?
- How often do I need to come in for chiropractic treatment?
- What will my chiropractic treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Huy will discuss recommendations for chiropractic care. He will also notify you if your condition requires care with other health care providers. Your chiropractic care plan will include the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Chiropractic Care Treatment and Wellness Plan
At the conclusion of this appointment, you can experience your first chiropractic care treatment. This may include spinal adjustments performed by hand or with the aid of an instrument, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express feedback about the different styles of treatment anytime. Together we will develop the most effect treatments for you.
Total Health and Wellness Program
Prior to leaving, our chiropractor will suggest a total health and wellness program to incorporate outside of chiropractic care. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.
If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized total health and wellness program.
Dr. Huy is a specialist in nutrition and therefore all patients benefit from his expertise in this discipline. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal hygiene, have a health building diet, exercise consistently and without pain, and maintain a positive mental state. At Tarpon Total Health Care, your total health is our primary concern.
