We have some brief paperwork for you to fill out before your initial visit. Click the Patient Information link below to complete the paperwork online. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself, your health history and your condition. We also ask that you bring your health insurance card with you to your first appointment.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
History and Examination
The doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, doctor will then decide the individual course of treatment that each person will take. This may include spinal adjustments, decompression, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients may be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are then provided with a complete review of findings. Your doctor will work with you to create a wellness plan – i.e. healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person requires a customized plan, designed to fit their unique lifestyle.
