What to Expect
Upon arrival, 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 current condition.
You will have an initial consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor 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 chiropractic examination. Standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignment and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you may have including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, exam findings and X-rays, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our doctors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
In order to figure out how your body is going to respond to the adjustment, on your second and third visit the doctor will check and adjust you. This information will then allow the doctor to create a care plan tailored just for you. At the conclusion of your report of findings, we will be able to answer two very common questions: 1) How long will it take? And 2) how much will it cost? Because our doctors have a variety of techniques to offer, including spine therapy, and/or soft tissue massage treatment is interactive. You can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime and changes can be made to make you the most comfortable.
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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique; therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you and your family to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
