Upon entering our office, our receptionists 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.
After your consultation, Your provider will perform a thorough 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. X-rays help us develop the most effective care 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 misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- What is wrong?
- How can you help me?
- What is my specific care plan?
- What will my care cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.Your doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of your appointment, you can choose to experience chiropractic care. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Care is interactive, so you can inquire about the different styles of care anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of office care. 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 to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
