What to Expect

Your First Visit to Healing Hands Chiropractic Studio

The focus is all on the patient and what their wellness needs are and what brings them into the office. An Initial Consult will address health needs, concerns, and history – to get a clear understanding of what is going on and why.

Objective tests are completed in a thorough physical exam for precise analysis: neurological and muscle strength testing, posture, alignment, and balance. If necessary we will send out for x-rays. Dr. Donnelly prefers to examine all x-rays and MRI’s, but will not ask for unnecessary, superfluous procedures/ diagnostic tests to be performed. She will look at the cause of nerve interference/ dysfunction and integrity of the joints. She will discuss concerns and options with all her patients.

You will then receive your first adjustment. Dr. Donnelly will talk through each adjustment before performed.

The first visit often includes initial consult, physical exam, and 1st treatment, so we ask that you please allow at least 45 minutes.

Typical Office Visit

Dr. Donnelly will look at each person brand new every visit. The idea is that if you are healing, then your body is changing and therefore, you are different every day. Life is not static. Her intention is that you continue to improve and she builds on that improvement.

Please allow at least 15 minutes for this session – a little more may be necessary for tissue work and/ or exercise prescription. To maximize your healing process, it is taken into consideration what will stabilize your joints faster – there may be scar tissue from old injuries and muscle atrophy. Dr. Donnelly’s background includes many branches of the healing sciences. She looks at the whole person to maximize a quick recovery.

“Your time is valuable and I intend you to get to live your life fully and as quickly as possible.”
