What to Expect

Not Sure What to Expect?

“I tell my patients to relax and have an open mind,” says Dr. Devereux. “They’re seeking my help because they want a natural approach to whatever issue they are dealing with. If they have concerns about chiropractic, I ask them to consider that my methods are noninvasive, natural, and have a good safety track record.”

Dr. Devereux can blend and adapt a variety of treatments and techniques to meet the needs of each patient. He uses Diversified chiropractic technique and has many low-force techniques available, especially for children and others who may need very gentle care.

When you come in for your first visit, he takes time to make you comfortable, answer questions, and explains the procedures.

Your First Visit

At your first visit, you can expect Dr. Devereux to:

  • Take your medical history
  • Provide a full and personal consultation
  • Give a comprehensive chiropractic exam

For structural care, this will likely be the extent of this visit. If you are coming in for allergy care, you can also expect to have some muscle testing done, as he will check you for all of the top allergens. This is also the time to discuss any nutritional or dietary issues that concern you. At the end of this visit, Dr. Devereux will review everything with you and send you home with some reading materials. We will schedule your second appointment where we will begin the treatment plan we’ve discussed. He likes to give you at least 24 hours to digest all of the information before coming back for that second visit. Wear comfortable clothing to this visit and set aside approximately one hour.

You can expect to be in the office for 15-20 minutes if you are receiving chiropractic care alone, and up to 45 minutes if you are receiving other treatments such as allergy elimination or acupuncture.

Whether or not you decide to make chiropractic and holistic whole health care a regular part of your life is your choice. “If you choose to use chiropractic as pain relief,” says Dr. Devereux, “then get out of pain. But if you choose to use chiropractic for your overall healthcare – as many patients do – then treat it like you would your car. Plan to maintain.”

It takes time to get well and stay well – many of our patients choose a maintenance plan, with direction from Dr. Devereux, and constant encouragement to stay with it if they choose it.
