Not just for Fort Wayne’s elite athletes and sports teams. Chiropractic Sports Medicine is for all patients, from newborns to the elderly. Applying the demanding requirements of sports to everyday life can prove to be very helpful, as life is a sport with no referee.
Most first visits will last 1 hour of hands on time with the doctor. We will address the immediate issues and discuss the root of the problem and how we can work toward correcting that.
Subsequent visits will last about 30 minutes. We will review any questions or concerns from the previous visit and work each patient through the progressive levels of strengthening and function.
Visits will be scheduled one at a time and no automatic ‘3 times a week for several weeks’. The second visit is usually 3-4 days after the 1st to make sure no issues or questions arise. Following visits are based on improvements and setbacks. The better you follow the doctor’s instructions and the quicker you improve, the longer time between appointments. The end goal is always permanent improvement and educating the patient how to continue healing long after the visits with the doctors end.
