Prior to your appointment, we will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, we will perform a complete chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays to help us develop the most effective treatment plan, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you have including:
We will discuss our recommendations and if your condition requires care with other providers. Our doctors and staff will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can talk to the doctor about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office, this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
