Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our chiropractic associate will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information and facilitates a prompt start to your road to health.


Consultation

In our daily lives we are good about setting our dental checkups twice a year to protect our teeth, our regular breast exams or ob-gyn exams, our prostate check-ups but do we have the same regard for the system of the body that controls all the nervous system?

Our doctors will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your lifestyle challenges and your ultimate health and wellness expectations.


Examination

You live through your nervous system. Now neural outputs can be detected and measured. We have the technology in this office to scan your spine, monitor progress and check your body's overall adaptability to the physical, chemical and emotional stresses that effect you and your family.

After your consultation, the doctors main purpose is to detect and correct subluxation (misalignments) by improving normal positioning, movement and fuction of vertebrae. This increases the communication between the brain and body creating a healthier nervous system.


X-Ray Studies

Your spine is the single most important organ in your body with which you can work to improve.

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 misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Optimum health can only be achieved when there is 100% communication between the brain and the body. The nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. This system connects the brain to every cell and tissue in the body.

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, our doctors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, our doctors 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.


Treatment

Our adjustment center offers a warm and friendly environment that promotes individualized health and healing. We believe in the body's innate ability to be balanced and strong. Our techniques are supportive and gentle to assist the natural healing process.

At the conclusion of this initial 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 express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, our 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 to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
