What to expect

On your first visit you will have a consultation with Dr. Durrer, a chiropractic exam, a thermograph and an EMG scan, and a foot scan. At your follow-up appointment you will have a report of findings consultation with Dr. Durrer at which time he will explain what your scans revealed and will share the care plan he recommends for you. At that time you will also receive your first chiropractic adjustment.

“Why do you offer these plans to people?”

It is my responsibility to have a plan for your care. That is a requirement that my license mandates I provide for the patient. There must be a course of action. “Without vision, the people perish.” My own interpretation of this is, “Without a plan, the body perishes.” I create a plan based on my experience, the patient’s expectations, and the health status of the individual.

“What is the purpose of the care plan?”

The purpose is to give your body the best opportunity to heal and function with as little subluxation interference to your nervous system as possible. Have you ever learned something new? How hard is it the first few times you do it?

I have a patient who’s an avid golfer. He decided to change his swing. For the next few months, his game was ruined. He played the worst golf of his life. But with time, he learned a new way, a better way. Now he is playing the best golf of his life and doing it pain-free. His old way was neurologically ingrained in his body. It was a habit.

Your old way of walking, thinking, carrying yourself, eating, moving, living, and working all change when you are under corrective care. It takes time to learn a new way of doing all these things! There is no magic pill to health or healing.

“Why don’t you accept insurance?”

Quite simply, it is my responsibility as a care giver to give you the best care possible. When there is a third party involved it can often hinder that process. While we do not directly deal with insurance companies, what we are willing to do for you is provide you with a printed statement that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement as your personal policy allows.
