Your First Visit: What to Expect

Have you settled for less than optimal health, and learned to just 'deal with pain' as part of your life?  Our society has come to accept less than optimal health in exchange for our busy, more stressful, faster paced life.

We aim to help our patients achieve their optimal health.

On your first visit, we will have you fill out the appropriate paperwork (if not already completed; see 'Intake Forms' link).   A complete history of your chief complaint and any associated areas of complaint is taken before beginning the physical examination.   At Barry Family Chiropractic, we pride ourselves on our thoroughness and dedication to finding the real cause of an area of complaint.   Our immediate goal is to relieve any pain that you may be experiencing, and our long term goal is to ensure that that pain does not return.

The first visit is typically one hour, and consists of a comprehensive history and physical exam.

Following the results of the history and the examination, your doctor will speak with you to let you know if you are a candidate for chiropractic care.   If your doctor discovers a condition that is not appropriately treated with chiropractic, he or she will refer you to the proper specialist for that condition.

If you are a candidate for chiropractic, your doctor will discuss treatment options and home care recommendations.

We look forward to working as a team with your other health care professionals to treat your whole person.
