Patients visiting Awaken Chiropractic for the first time are often curious as to what the process is, and what to expect on their first chiropractic visit. Learn what to expect, and read a step-by-step process regarding what you will experience on your first visit to Dr. Gabriel Long at Awaken Chiropractic in Omaha, Nebraska.
Complete Application for New Practice Members
We ask all of our new practice members to complete a new member application as completely as they can. This form includes questions about your healthcare history and gives us an understanding of past trauma and injuries that might be contributing to current health concerns. We will also perform an insurance benefits check for you complimentary to being in our office.
Tour the Office
After you fill out your paperwork, we’ll take you on a tour of the office better explaining what we do, our methods, how they help and why. This will help you to feel more at home here and develop an understanding of what principled chiropractic is.
Following the tour, you’ll sit down with us for a special one-on-one healthcare consult. We will talk about your current issues, past health concerns, goals for recovery, and other healthcare history concerns so we can provide only the very best healthcare.
At this stage, we will perform a complete and scientific physical examination using advanced NASA-published technology. Our state of the art technology will assess your nervous system and muscles not only where pressure and stress may be stemming from, but for how long and to what extent.
At this point, depending on the severity of your neurological evaluation and your recommendations, we may elect to take any postural x-rays, other diagnostic imaging that may be required. This will allow us to closely examine your skeletal system to see any limitations to the results we expect for you in our office. This will also confirm any preliminary diagnoses and allow us to approach adjustment with the most detailed information possible.
This concludes Day 1 in our office. Typically an adjustment does not take place on the first day.
Plan of Care
Once we have completed your complete assessment, Dr. Gabriel Long will create a specialized custom plan of care for you that will be tailored specifically to your individual needs.
On your follow-up visit, we will sit down with you and your loved ones, and present to you a detailed report of our findings. This will include analysis of your diagnostic imaging and the results of your examination. We will also discuss your customized plan of corrective care and payment options to make care most affordable moving forward.
The Road to Health
When you start care here in our office, the process of healing is a two-way street navigated by both you and Dr. Gabriel Long. In order to experience optimal healthcare improvements, you will need to commit to your appointments and to taking all necessary steps and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr. Gabriel.
Patience is essential—while some see improvements right away, others take more time. Understand, Rome wasn’t built in a day, symptoms don’t arise in a day, and healing doesn’t occur in a day. With the proper time and repetition that Dr. Gabriel specifically recommends to you we will see you reach your health goals and break free of any health burdens you may have.
Please know, that at first some temporary stiffness and discomfort are normal. These healing sensations are a sign of your body correcting itself as nervous system function is restored.
