Introducing our NEWEST update to our HealthQuest of Fields Ertel Office …..
MOVING to a NEW LOCATION around the corner!
In the Kemper Professional Office Park 8390 E. Kemper Road Suite A Cincinnati, Ohio 45249
We are excited and blessed to be able to share this new space with our community. It has a GREAT Conference Room, Beautiful Reception area and so much more! We will be scheduling an Grand Opening very soon, however, starting Monday June 8th Appointments will be at the new location.
Depending on how life has treated you all the way from Birth, you might need to see a Chiropractor now!
Think about the force of twisting and pulling that can be put on a babies neck during birth. Think about how many times you fell off your bike as a child. Think about how many times you woke up in a weird position and your neck or back or both were sore/stiff. Think about how you sit at your desk at work. Think about how your body is positioned as you watch TV at night. Those plus stress can all cause issues in your body.
Do you listen to your body?
Our body communicates with us by indicating pain, and if we listen we can usually pretty easily adjust to make it go away. At HealthQuest we look to find what the root cause of your pain is and perform an adjustment to get rid of that root cause. Some pain can take quite awhile to release, while others can feel relief quickly. It all depends on how long you wait to hear that pain and get it checked out. The sooner it is dealt with the better the chances are it can be removed permanently. If you mask the pain by taking medicine, you are masking the messages your body is trying to tell you.
At HealthQuest, every patient who comes in our door for the first time has a one-on-one consultation with our Doctor for 30 minutes. The Doctor asks questions and really listens to each patient to find out what is bothering them and how long it has been an issue. They also work to find out what the patient’s health goals are and tries to help them achieve those goals. Our goal is to use holistic methods with small but meaningful improvements in daily lifestyle to help our patients be the best version of themselves.
Before our Chiropractors can begin your treatment and at each of your assessment exams your pain must be assessed. Assessing pain is subjective because there is no exact tool to measure the amount of pain a patient is experiencing.
During our New Patient Exam our Doctors spend 30 Minutes with you, asking questions, running tests, observing your posture, gait, facial expression of discomfort and involuntary verbalizations. We use a scale of 0 to 10 that is referred back to at follow up exams to check progress. We want to make sure your condition(s) is responding to treatment over time. We also utilize x-rays to show movement of the neck and spine to compare progress.
Pain Measurement and its effect on daily activities are crucial to the creation of our treatment plans. They help us to determine the severity of the injury or condition as well as assess the treatment progress. If an adjustment needs to be made to a treatment of a condition it will be shown during the progress exams if not before. We always want to work toward progress of healing and adjust as needed during treatment.
Pain is a symptom of a condition your body is going through. Pain like many other symptoms can be masked or hidden by medication. Be careful not to hide your symptoms and ignore them. Pain is a great way for the body to communicate needing help.
Did you know that all three of our offices try to help educate the community? We hold MONTHLY health talks by our Doctor at local restaurants or catered in our office. www.HealthQuestFreeDinner.com
HealthQuest has a shared vision to give back to our community. We do this with several events and projects throughout the year. One of our favorites is when we invite our patients, guests and members of the community to attend our Dinner with the Doc.
Our Doctors are willing to take time away from their families to help educate those in our community interested in bettering their health.
If you would like to join us at our next event please sign up NOW! These fill up quickly.
