Your Second Visit to Our Faribault Practice
On your second visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.[/caption]
The second visit is scheduled after the initial examination. This visit will take about 25 minutes.
After the first visit all the information was collected. Between the 1st and the 2nd, Dr. Potter will correlate all the exam findings, come up with a diagnosis, and prescribe a treatment plan for the patient. All this information will be discussed with you and Dr. Potter is always open to questions. The plan may include a series of spinal adjustments, physiotherapy such as ice/heat, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and exercises.
Often the chiropractor may suggest supplements and dietary measures to help prepare the body for healing the injured area. The treatment sessions are usually 2-3 visits per week for 2-5 weeks, reducing in frequency until the condition has resolved.
Home care of special exercises, home traction, and stretching is usually prescribed after the acute, or painful, phase has subsided.
