What to Expect at Nowak Chiropractic

Your First Visit

Our relationship begins with your phone call, where you’ll be able to chat with a friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable staff member.

Filling out Forms

When you arrive for your first appointment, a happy, pleasant front desk person who will assist you in filling out any necessary paperwork will greet you. We also offer the paperwork online to complete in the convenience of your own home before your appointment, if you prefer.

Meeting Personally With the Doctor

You’ll be escorted to a private room to meet with one of the doctors, who will introduce himself to you.

The doctor will be very interested in hearing about how your problem started, what the pain feels like and what you’ve found that gives you the most relief. He’ll also ask a lot of questions about your past health history so that he can get “the big picture” of your personal health pattern.


Once the doctor fully understands your concerns, he will perform a series of chiropractic, orthopedic, range of motion and nerve tests. These non-invasive tests will help him to find the source of your problem, and whether or not you have a condition that he can help.

If necessary, X-rays will also be taken at this time.

Report of Findings

This is where the doctor will review the results of his testing with you and discuss what he feels can be done to alleviate your problem. Once all your questions have been answered and you’re ready to start care, the doctor will then perform your very first treatment.

How Long Will My First Visit Be?

The average first visit takes approximately one hour.

How Long Will it Take to Get Rid of My Pain?

At Nowak Chiropractic a course of treatment is usually between two to four weeks, followed by a re-assessment to monitor your progress and determine a possible future treatment schedule.

As a patient we view our relationship with you as a partnership. There’s never any hard-sell tactics or high pressure used. YOU are the one in the driver’s seat with the final say in all decisions relating to your health care.

A Typical Office Visit

On a typical office visit, you’ll be escorted to a treatment room by one of our friendly staff, where you’ll meet with the doctor for either treatment or re-assessment.

A regular office visit is about 15 minutes in length.

Do I Have to Keep Going for My Entire Life?

It’s a great idea, actually, to keep you in tip-top shape. But do you HAVE to go? Of course not, and you won’t “fall apart” if you don’t!

It’s always better to prevent a problem rather than receiving care on a crisis basis…just like it’s smarter to see your dentist on a regular basis and not just when you have a major toothache. Chiropractic care is no different.

But the decision is always yours to make. We provide high quality chiropractic care whether you’re simply seeking relief for your pain or looking for health maintenance.
