Questions About Chiropractic Care

What will my first visit be like?
At your first visit to Wider Horizons Chiropractic in Brookfield, you will:

  • Fill out paperwork about your health concerns
  • Answer some questions about your health concerns
  • Receive a detailed examination
  • Receive spinal scans (non-invasive and pain free)
  • Schedule a follow up visit to review your exam results

Plan to spend 20 minutes with us on your first visit.


What is a report of findings visit?
The report of findings is typically your second visit to the office. The doctor will answer the following questions at the report of findings visit:

  1. What is going on with your body?
  2. Can Dr. Weidner help you?
  3. How long will it take?
  4. How much will it cost to fix?

Plan 10 minutes for this visit.

If we are able to help you, you have the opportunity to start care at this visit!


How many visits will it take to "fix" me / my problem?
An exam is required to determine how many visits will be appropriate for you.

Care recommendations are based on your overall level of health, your history and exam findings, as well as the type of work you do and lifestyle you live.


What does my spine have to do with the health of my entire body?
Your spine protects your spinal cord.

Your spinal cord is essential for sending and receiving messages to the rest of your body.

Your nervous system literally controls every cell in your body (feeling, movement, digestion, breathing, etc).

If you have tension on your spine, it creates tension in your nervous system, which irritates nerves. Irritated nerves irritate the tissues they supply nerve flow to.

Irritated tissues don't function properly, causing symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling, headaches, indigestion, constipation, shortness of breath, weakened immune system, and on and on and on.

The health of your spine directly relates to the health of the rest of your body.


I've been to other chiropractors before without positive or lasting results. Can I get different results from NSA?
People can respond differently to different chiropractic techniques.

If you've been to a chiropractor in the past and haven't gotten the results you've wanted, you may still benefit greatly from visiting Wider Horizons Chiropractic.


I do not like experiencing the "snap" or "pop" in my spine. Can I still see a chiropractor?
Yes.

There are many chiropractic techniques, and only a few that cause the "snap" or "pop" noise. (The snap or pop is called joint cavitation and is caused by the release of gas from the joint.)

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a technique used in our office. There are no "snap" or "pop" noises with an NSA adjustment.


How long is a report of findings visit?
10 minutes.

And if you would like to start care, you can be adjusted on this visit also!


If I start seeing a chiropractor, will I have to go for the rest of my life?
When you go to the chiropractor, you receive the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment. If you stop going to the chiropractor, you stop receiving the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment.

If you want to receive the benefits of working out or eating healthy, you have to continue to work out and eat healthy. Chiropractic works in a similar way.


What exactly is NSA chiropractic?
NSA, or Network Spinal Analysis, is a very gentle chiropractic technique.

The doctor will use light touches to your spine to stimulate your nerves. This helps you heal from the inside out.

As is true with all chiropractic care, your body is doing all the healing, the chiropractor simply helps coordinate the process.


Do I need to continue getting adjusted if I'm not in pain?
The absence of pain does not necessarily equal health. We use high-tech nervous system scans to determine if you have underlying functional problems in your nervous system.

We want you feeling and functioning fine!
