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?
You can expect us to be truthful and fair and that we will ask as much of you as we ask of ourselves in terms of you being healthy and getting better. We will try to do an unbelievably good job but we will ask you to do the same.
Can chiropractic help with (insert condition here)?
When your nervous system isn’t working properly you can have trouble anywhere in your body, by the same token when you remove interference you can experience healing anywhere in the body. We don’t treat conditions, we treat people. We treat the whole person.
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.
