Patient Forms

Upon entering  the clinic, our receptionist will greet and welcome you.  You will then be requested to fill out our new patient forms located in the New Patient Center, if you have not already filled them out and brought them in with you. This paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with your Doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for your Doctor to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations, to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, your Doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, your Doctor will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: 

  1. How can you help me?
  2. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  3. How much is it going to cost?

After discussing your history and goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, your Doctor will recommend a treatment and wellness program for you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the Doctor will tell you.


Treatment

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.  Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your success.  Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan.  The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
