What to Expect at a Chiropractic Office

If you have not been to a chiropractor before, you might be wondering what would happen at your first visit if you visited one. Although your experience could be somewhat different depending on which office you went to, we can describe what your visit would be like in our office.

When you arrive, you can expect to be greeted with respect and courtesy by our conscientious and friendly staff. You will then be asked to complete a few forms so that you can accurately share your concerns and your current state of health with the doctor.

We believe a very thorough evaluation of your condition is essential to determining the best course of action to restore your health. The doctor will consult with you to understand your concerns better and further evaluate your health. He/she will then determine which type of examination procedures will best benefit your specific needs. The doctor will examine your spine and nervous system through a number of diagnostic tests and by utilizing state-of-the-art examination procedures. The diagnostic tools that may be used in order to best understand the health of your spine include, but are not limited to, X-rays, surface electromyography, and computerized infrared thermography. All of these tests are performed right in our office.

After a thorough analysis and investigation, the doctor will report and show you, usually in a subsequent visit, what was found and if and how we can help you. You will then be in a good position to make informed choices about your care, and to decide which course of action you would like to follow.

Very often the cause of dysfunction in the body is a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractors are experts in locating and correcting subluxations. The chiropractor’s most common course of action is the adjustment, which restores the normal flow of neural information by correcting subluxations.

There you have it. If the fear of the unknown has kept you from visiting a chiropractor, do not wait any longer.Call us for a consultation, and be assured that you will have a very thorough evaluation and report of our findings, performed with the utmost level of professionalism, integrity and respect.

The Webber Family

While struggling to nurse my 10th child, I, Cheryl Webber, decided (at the advice of a friend) to try seeing a chiropractor. I also hoped x-rays would reveal the source of chronic pelvic pain – but was doubtful chiropractic care would help either ailment. 

A month (and numerous visits later) found all 12 members of our family frequenting Harper Chiropractic – and loving the results! Lessened (in some cases irradicated) chronic pain/inflammation, faster healing of flus, colds and wounds, headache relief, scoliosis improvement, better hearing/eyesight are just some of the benefits we have noticed…(also, to a previously uncoordinated mother, the impressive ability to kill flies with her bare hand is an added bonus – especially since her toddler loves to “hide” the fly swatter). Now everyone comes at least once a week – with one son embarking on cranial work. Some in the family are convinced there is no end to what Dr. Liana can adjust!... (they sing)…”head and shoulder, knees and toes…Ears, ankles, wrists and nose”…(to name a few of our families favorite adjustments).

Everyone enjoys the friendly atmosphere, focus on health and nutrition found in the clinic…and we really enjoy Dr. Liana! Her genuine care and “tricks of the trade” are appreciated by all. (Learning something new from Dr. Liana’s enthusiastic conversations is always a welcome treat!)

Our family understands that life can throw curve balls that affect health and we realize good health doesn’t just happen. It takes prayer, effort and requires wise choices.

As parents, Craig and I know we are constantly forced to evaluate what constitutes a wise use of time and money. We consider chiropractic care to be an excellent investment in the long term health of our 10 children. Being able to bring our family to this clinic is an answer to prayer, a blessing to the whole family and we are very grateful for all that has been done for us. Thank You!!

I would like to tell others what Dr. Liana Harper did to improve my health. I fell off of our dairy barn roof in 2001 while putting up rafters. I was climbing down, hanging on to a 2x4 which broke and I fell down 8 feet, landing on my upper back. I climbed right back up again as if nothing had happened. For the next three years I visited four or five different chiropractic offices with very little success. My neck always gave me grief. In the Spring of 2005, when I could no longer turn my head without turning my whole body (driving a tractor was very painful) I developed big lumps on the back of my head. That's when I began getting adjustments by Dr. Liana Harper. Fourteen cranial treatments and adjustments brought me great relief. I am very happy and would not hesitate to refer any human in the world to Dr. Liana Harper. Faith is the answer to success. May the Lord be praised for the wisdom and knowledge he gave you to share with others. Bless all of you.

The following is a testimonial sent to us from Daniel Hofer's family...

Our son had a major problem with stuttering and we tried many different approaches hoping for a curable remedy to this ailment. Medication, both allopathic (drugs) and alternative (herbs and vitamins), medical doctors, various chiropractors etc..., all gave undesirable results. There would always be a certain degree of relief for a few months only to return to the same old roller coaster ride over and over again. Being at our wits end, we heard about Harper Chiropractic clinic and we decided to give it a try.

At our first visit we saw Dr. Liana Harper and after a thorough checkup she gave our son Daniel a spinal and cranial adjustment. In the beginning we went once a week and then every 10-12 days and now we go as needed. The results have been tremendous and have been a relief for our son and family. We cannot thank Dr. Liana enough.
