What to Expect

Welcome to Chiropractic at the Lighthouse LLC. Our warm and friendly environment will help you feel at home each time you visit us. Your initial visits with us are about understanding what your health concerns are so we can know how to help you.

Your First Visit

Marietta Chiropractor Dr. Laurelyn BarnettWhen you arrive for your first visit we’ll ask you to complete some paperwork. You have the option to download the necessary forms prior to your visit and fill them out in the comfort of your home.

After your paperwork is completed you will meet Dr. Barnett. She’ll spend some time getting to know you and will:

  • Review what your health concerns are
  • Give you a tailor-made examination
  • Check your spine
  • Perform an adjustment with the Activator Method®
  • Send you out to get X-rays, only if necessary
  • Answer any questions you might have
  • Your first appointment will last about an hour.

Your Second Visit

When you return we will start with an adjustment. We’ll review a nerve chart with you to find out what has stayed the same as far as which subluxations were found the first time. Dr. Barnett will discuss a detailed care plan that she feels will be best for you.

Dr. Barnett will spend some time discussing the benefits of the extra therapies we offer as a way to enhance your chiropractic care. Once all of your questions are answered and we have agreed on a care plan we will schedule you for your follow up visit and send you on your way.

The second visit takes about 20 minutes.

Regular Visits

When you come in for regular visits, Dr. Barnett will ask how you’re doing and perform an adjustment. She will show you a spine chart that explains what your spine looks like to her and then relate it to what your symptoms are. After 8 or 12 appointments, Dr. Barnett will do a re-exam. Each adjustment helps reinforce new congruent muscle positioning in the brain so the adjustments are held longer.

If you have any questions about what to expect during your first visit, call (770) 971-8115 today.
