Family Chiropractic Clinic of Jackson, TN provides information on how your first visit will go when you come to us for your chiropractic care. Your first visit to Family Chiropractic Clinic will give you an opportunity to find out if chiropractic care can help you. 

Dr. Steve Sopcak will do a thorough case history and examination to make sure that your condition can be helped through the natural healing of chiropractic adjustments.  As a doctor of chiropractic medicine, Dr. Steve believes in natural healing, including chiropractic treatments, rehabilitation, therapy, nutrition, and massage.

Our Your First Visit:

On your initial visit Dr. Steve will provide a no-charge consultation.  This will allow you to meet the doctor and the staff with no financial commitment or obligation.  After the no-charge consultation, if you and Dr. Steve agree that you can benefit from chiropractic care we will continue with a complete neurological and orthopedic examination and x-rays (if needed).

On the following day, Dr. Steve will review the findings from your first day's visit and recommend a schedule of care.  Based on the analysis of your initial examination, your treatment could consist of chiropractic adjustments, therapies, and rehabilitation.  Dr. Steve will begin your recommended schedule of care on that day.



Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you 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.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Steve Sopcak to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Steve Sopcak to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Steve Sopcak will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays 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 misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Steve Sopcak will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Steve Sopcak will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Steve Sopcak  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a  wellness program  to incorporate outside of treatment.  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 wellness plan.  The purpose  of our wellness program is for   you  to achieve good spinal alignment, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
