Your First Visit to Our Athens Practice

Lawson Family Chiropractic

You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

On the first visit the patient can expect to spend about an hour at the clinic. If the patient hasn’t completed the paperwork emailed to them prior to the appointment time,  they will have to fill out all the necessary paperwork prior to being seen. If you are using insurance be sure to bring an ID and your insurance card with you.

Then the Doctor will take you for your consultation and Examination. She will perform all the necessary procedures based on your problem, your history, and spinal condition. She will do a thorough evaluation of your spine and extremities. There will be some Orthopedic tests, Neurological tests, and Kinesiological (Muscle) tests performed as well. X Rays may be ordered if necessary based on your spinal condition.

If the Doctor determines that you are a chiropractic case, you may receive treatment that day.

Your Second Visit to Our Athens Practice

The second visit usually only takes about 30 minutes.  The Doctor will explain to you, in detail, the results of your thorough examination from the first day. She will explain the  techniques she will be using and the purpose of the adjustment to you. She will explain the treatment plan and purpose of care in this clinic. You will need to follow up in a few days after your adjustment to see how your condition is doing.
