WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
It may have started with a headache, back pain, neck pain, or that pulled muscle that really never got better. Now you’re taking way too much over-the-counter pain medication to try to ease it and your sleep is suffering. When you’ve got pain and you’re looking to get past the medications and invasive treatments, perhaps a visit to Dr. Yang is in order. If you’ve never been to one, here is what to expect when you first go in to Dr. Yang Wellness Center appointment.
BEFORE YOUR CHIROPRACTIC APPOINTMENT
Make sure you drink plenty of water for your first treatment and bring any other relevant health information such as blood work, X-ray, or MRI result(s) etc to access your condition better.
DURING YOUR CHIROPRACTIC, ACUPUNCTURE APPOINTMENT
When you get to the office you will be handed forms to fill out that will let the office know about your health history and what you are coming to the doctor for today. There may be releases for x-rays, if that is also needed. After you fill out this paperwork, you’ll turn it back in and wait to be seen. When called back from the waiting room, you’ll first see the doctor and she will run some tests typically be a reflex, neurological and orthopedic tests done to test for muscle tone and range of motion and acupuncture analysis. After those initial test are completed you will be evaluated and the doctor will go over what they believe may be wrong and their treatment plan. There could be other tests needed or follow-up care. Dr. Yang is going to be dedicated to getting you healed and feeling better, with better range of motion and with as little pain as possible. Depending on diagnosis and expected treatment plan, you may be getting acupuncture, acupressre, cupping, soft tissue work, electrical stimulation, decompression, taping, alignments, or other manipulations. Your doctor will discuss all of this ahead of time so there are no surprises. There may be several of these done in a visit, or only one. Again, it will depend on the treatment plan and your diagnosis.
AFTER YOUR CHIROPRACTIC APPOINTMENT
After the visit you may feel better, or you may feel slightly worse in the beginning. After a few hours, however, if you were feeling worse you should begin to start icing 20 min on with an hour off cycle to feel more relaxed and at ease with your muscles and joints relaxing and adjusting to their proper alignment. You may need more than one treatment to get your body back into balance, You are always in control of your treatment. If a follow-up visit is planned, you will get a card telling you of your next appointment date. Appointments are generally relaxing and easy, you should feel better immediately or within a few visits. Your visits may not be the same every time you go, depending on your diagnosis. Your doctor will space these treatments as needed for the best possible outcome. If you are trying to decide whether to take the plunge and have treatment, we will be more than happy to answer your questions and help quell your concerns. You are welcome to come in and talk to us at any of our locations in Connecticut or Massachusetts. If you’d rather, pick up the phone and talk to us to see about a consultation call us at any time @ 203-954-1900 and someone will be more than happy to help.
Dr Yang relieved chronic muscle tightness and spasms I’ve been having for almost a year in just a few sessions. I’ve tried massage therapy and other chiropractors with little results. She is friendly and attentive and got right to work on my symptoms. She used multiple techniques including acupuncture, electronic stimulation, cupping and acupressure all while applying heat or cooling when necessary. I find her to be very knowledgeable and effective. Would highly recommend her and will definitely go back in the future.
Dr. Yang has changed my life! After years and years of all kinds of medication and doctors for migraines and tension headaches I decided to come off all meds. The work that Dr. Yang has done has stopped most of my headaches and my constant neck pain. I had no idea she would also help me so much with my anxiety as well. I literally feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I am someone who had my doubts about this type of medicine but I am a true believer now. And I’ve gotten all this relief in such a short period of time as well. I noticed a difference after only 2 visits. I have now been going also 4 months and feel so great! I would highly recommend Dr. Yang to anyone.
Dr. Yang is a true miracle worker. I suffered from horrendous lower back pain and was thankfully referred to Dr. Yang by a friend. When I was waiting to see her, a patient was on his way out and looked and me said, "She's amazing, you're in great hands." He was so right and I want to be sure to take this opportunity and tell anyone else that Dr. Yang IS amazing and is so sweet, caring and so skilled in her profession. I'm so fortunate to have found her, and strongly recommend her to people any chance I get.
