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. This will Save you time in the office.
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. Or, to set you up a preventive wellness plan.
After your consultation, the docotr will perform a complete 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 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's and degeneration themselves. We use state of the art digital x-rays.
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 you and your families needs.
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? Once we have gathered all the information needed to accept you as a patient, the visits in the office for care will be thorough but fast, sometimes we may need to spend more time with you, sometimes less. But what you need that visit we make sure you get it. 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.
