Chiropractic care has been shown as an effective means of rehabilitation and pain reduction.
The first step, of course, begins with a consultation. During this stage, we will gather and record all of the information that led up to the reason for your visit. You will then be evaluated by a medical or chiropractic physician, as your injury warrants, and the next step in the process will begin.
During the second step - we are putting into practice the treatment plan that is the result of the consultation. At First Choice Wellness, we use a variety of treatment methods to treat a number of conditions. Take a look at a sample below.
The third step is travel down the road to recovery of both your health and wellness, and any losses associated with wrongful injury.
