What To Expect at Riverside Chiropractic

The First Visit

New patients often remark how “homey” our practice is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. So, make yourself at home!

Make Yourself at Home

You’ll find plenty of convenient and well-lit parking. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our practice and given a short tour to get you acquainted with our facilities.

If you’ve already completed your admitting paperwork, great! If not, after doing so we’ll likely show you a short video and then you’ll meet Dr. Jenny Geiger.

We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your pre-care consultation is to discuss your health goals and see if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help us identify the likely cause of your problem.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!

The Second Visit

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of Dr. Jenny, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.

Regular Visits

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

In a word: no.  A typical office visit may require just five to 10 minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.


Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal bio-mechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

Gonstead

This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results. read more»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Jenny know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
