Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. 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.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of the 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 expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete examination using standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical testing to determine your current abilities and limitations . However, nothing will ever be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for X-rays as well. X-rays can alert us of any serious spinal or extremity conditions that may require a referral or co-management with other providers.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. She will provide the best treatment and wellness plan for your needs.
Next, you will experience your first adjustment. We want your treatment to be interactive, so please feel free to ask questions anytime. Conversation is an important part of the care you receive in our office.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness plan to incorporate outside of your 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. If you desire, we will also work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Our goal is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, use proper exercise and stretching techniques, and maintain a positive mental state.
