Getting Started

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
Your First Visit

New patients often remark how “comfortable” Carmel Valley Chiropractic is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding.

You’ll find plenty of parking as we are located in a convenient community shopping center off major freeways in San Diego. You’ll be greeted by name when you enter our office and given a short amount of paperwork to complete for us to get acquainted. We are a small office, where we know you by name. We’re here to make a difference.

We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your consultation with Dr. Chris Elleraas is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a simple examination will help identify the cause of your problem.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!

Your Second Visit

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of Dr. Elleraas, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.

Regular Visits

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system need, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
