Do I have to get my neck "cracked"?

Dr. Lee understands that some individuals may be a bit hesitant of the “cracking” sound when receiving a chiropractic adjustment. For those individuals, Dr. Lee offers chiropractic mobilizations instead of a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic mobilization is a gentler form of a chiropractic adjustment which involves no “cracking”, but rather gentle applied pressure.​

What should I expect on my first visit? ​

On your very first visit with Dr. Lee, a focused history and an initial physical examination will take place. The purpose of the initial physical examination is to rule out any complicating health factors that may contribute to your present complaint. At the end of the examination, Dr. Lee will discuss and tailor a unique treatment plan based on the findings of the physical examination and your goals, expectations, and concerns. This process will take normally approximately 30-45 minutes.

What should I wear during my visits?

Dr. Lee also recommends for each visit that you come prepared with a set of comfortable clothes.

• For men, shorts and t-shirt
• For women, shorts and t-shirt/tank top

Regions of the body relating to your condition may need to be accessed in order for assessments, soft tissue techniques, or the placement of acupuncture needles. First, Dr. Lee will ask permission to have access to the body region and will then explain the procedure before proceeding with the treatment. During your treatment, you will be professionally draped at all times.

What should I expect during subsequent visits with Dr. Lee?

Subsequent visits with Dr. Lee takes approximately 20-30 minutes. Each treatment consists of a combination of chiropractic techniques, medical acupuncture, and/or soft tissue techniques according to the treatment plan recommended for you. The treatment time may vary from visit to visit, depending on your current condition.

Is chiropractic more effective than acupuncture (or vice versa) in helping patients get better?​

In some instances – yes. One form of treatment may be more effective than the other for a particular condition. But in many other instances, Dr. Lee has found that the most beneficial treatment for patients is a combination of medical acupuncture and chiropractic techniques.
