New Patient Center

We look forward to having you visit our office so that you can gain better body awareness, health and live a better life. We’re here to help. Here’s what you can expect as you begin your journey to better health.

First Visit

Ithaca Chiropractor New Patient Center

We hope you feel at home in our office!

We do our best to schedule same day or next day appointments for all patients seeking relief from pain. When you arrive our friendly staff will greet you and you will be asked to fill out some paperwork. Dr. Rebecca VonBergen will meet you for a consultation and thorough examination and may order x-rays to assist in her evaluation. If you have recent imaging, i.e. xray, MRI, it is helpful to have those reports with you or we can obtain them on your behalf. You will discuss your treatment options and she will recommend a care plan for you and your next visit.

Most first time patients receive an adjustment on this visit, starting your path to recovery as quickly as possible. This visit typically lasts 45 minutes to an hour.

Routine Visits

Frequency of visits depends on the care you need and may be weekly, monthly or as needed. In addition to the adjustment, you and Dr. Von Bergen will discuss your progress and how your body is feeling. She teaches exercises and stretches to do outside of the office. These visits last fifteen minutes.

Chiropractic Patient for Life?

You don’t have to become a chiropractic patient for life. The choice is yours.

We’ll help build body awareness for you and you’ll learn to sense how you feel after an adjustment and when it’s time to come back. Once you’re back on track, you decide how you’ll move forward.

By maintaining a healthy lifestyle your body will know when it needs to be adjusted. And when that time comes, we’ll be here.

At Chiropractic Health Care, expect to gain a clear understanding of what your pain is and how best to treat it for quicker and longer lasting relief. Contact us today for an appointment.
