Ascend Chiropractic's Approach
As a patient at Ascend Chiropractic your experience will be different than the traditional Chiropractic office. Yes, you will still be provided with specific Chiropractic care, but it's incorporating our soft tissue and rehabilitation techniques that make your experience unique from other offices. Ascend Chiropractic is patient focused, which is why we schedule longer appointment visits with you and also ensure the bulk of that time is spent with your Doctor of Chiropractic. You will be provided with reasonable timetables for your treatment plans and learn simple exercises that allow you progress outside of our office. Our goal is to not only see you pain free, but for you to ascend towards a level of optimal health.
At Ascend Chiropractic, your initial appointment visit will be scheduled for an hour to allow for proper consultation and treatment on the same day. If you come into our office in pain, you can expect to receive treatment during your first visit, as long as further imaging, exams, testing, etc., do not need to be completed after the examination.
Due to Ascend Chiropractic's individualized and integrative health care, you will be provided with shorter care plans compared to traditional offices. Each patient is different and the severity of complaints can change dramatically, but typically patient care plans will include 2-3 visits per week for 2-4 weeks. ART treatments are rarely performed on consecutive days, therefore 3 visits a week is normally our maximum frequency throughout a weeks time.
At the end of your treatment plan, we will re-evaluate the initial complaint to see if the problem has completely resolved, or if additional treatment may be needed. At this point, if the problem has resolved and you are no longer in pain, we can change our focus from pain management to improving your overall function and working towards optimal health. This plan normally consists of 1-2 visits per month to keep on track with care and add additional exercises to continue your progress.
