What to Expect

What to Expect

At Burien Wellness, our goal is to find the cause behind any health problems that are keeping you from experiencing life at its fullest.

On your first visit, we will do an overall health evaluation that may include x-rays and computerized nerve scans.

On the following visit, we will go over the results with you, then discuss a plan for you and your family to get started on your path to wellness. If you choose to receive chiropractic care at our office, you and your family will attend our New Patient Workshop to learn more about chiropractic health and how you can get the most out of your time with us.

Above all, expect to be greeted with a smile and treated as the amazing person you are!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect on my first visit?
Since we know that your body is self-healing and self-regulating, the first step is to determine what is interfering with that process. If we can find the cause of your problem, we will know how to best help you and that always starts with a consultation to hear your story and understand the history of what has brought you in. From there, we will do a thorough examination of your spine and nervous system (which will usually include some scans and x-rays) to locate the specific root cause of your issues. Our team will then take the time to measure and analyze your results so that we can walk you through everything as soon as the next day. At that point, we can offer you options on how we can help, and get started right away with the path that works best for you.
Can chiropractic help with (insert condition here)?

Since our examination and treatment focus on the spine and nervous system that you live your whole life through, the problems that we find are almost always causing dysfunction beyond just the pain that brings you in. This is why people see results with things like digestion, sleep and immune function. Just like we don’t treat the symptom of pain, we don’t treat these other symptoms either. Addressing the cause allows your body to go about its job of moving you closer and closer to health as you remove interference.

When will I be done with care?

Chiropractic has more in common with dentistry than medicine. Just like your dentist works for you, we do too so you can quit any time you want.  But once the symptoms are gone people continue with dental care for their overall health. Chiropractic care works the same way: if you want to patch one problem after another for life you can, but if you want to stay healthy for the rest of your life chiropractic care should be part of your wellness plan. Keeping your nervous system functioning optimally is a lifelong choice.

Do you adjust kids?
Yes! Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child’s spine. Anyone can become subluxated, resulting in decreased nervous system function, and that includes children. When we stop looking at chiropractic as being care for simply back or neck pain and start looking at what chiropractic actually does at its core, which is to remove the kind of interference to the nervous system that results in uncomfortable symptoms over time, it makes sense that it is imperative that we get kids checked by a chiropractor regularly. Health problems that emerge in adulthood could often be prevented by having your child’s spine checked by a chiropractor early.
Do you take insurance?

Burien Wellness is a preferred health provider on most insurance plans. We are happy to verify your benefits for you. But ultimately your treatment plan should be determined by you and your doctor, not what your insurance company dictates. We live in a time when we must actively seek out healthy options, not just settle for what the insurance industry allows.
