Your Patient Experience
Chiropractic is the largest natural health care profession. Your Doctor of Chiropractic will take a holistic approach to maintaining or improving your mobility and quality of life without the use of drugs or surgery.
What to Expect
On your first visit as a patient to a Logan University Health Center, you will be greeted at the reception desk by our friendly staff. Fill out appropriate paperwork and insurance forms. Meet the student doctor and supervising clinician who will be caring for you. They will take and evaluate a comprehensive history of your health. You will be thoroughly examined so the doctors can determine a diagnosis. Any necessary X-rays or lab work will be completed or scheduled.
On your second visit, your doctor will review the results of your exam with you and discuss a recommended treatment plan. We will then schedule the appropriate follow-up appointments for you.
Pediatric Chiropractic Services
Families seeking conservative health care for their children have access to pediatric chiropractic care through Logan University. Since 2017, the University’s Health Centers has offered pediatric chiropractic services to address the health needs of infants and youth.
Chiropractic physicians advise parents on a variety of developmental topics and their care assists children through normal growth transitions as well as specific musculoskeletal disorders. For example: newborns may struggle with post-birth musculoskeletal issues and latching-on challenges; young children often require care for posture, spine development and appropriate muscle strength; and youth can suffer pain from falls, repetitive use or sport injuries. Chiropractic care also plays an important role in the care of children with special needs.
As with all chiropractic services at Logan, physicians advocate a team approach to patient-centered care, maintaining collaborative relationships with other health care professionals in treating, co-treating and referring patients.
