Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, 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, if you have not done so ahead of time. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. If you do not complete the forms before your appt, please arrive 30 minutes early to ensure you do not cut into your appointment time.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with your provider 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 or physical therapy care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic/physical therapy 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.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for 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

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:

  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, 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.


Treatment

At the conclusion of your evaluation, 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. It is very important to stick to the recommended treatment plan after your first visit to ensure you get the full benefit of treatment.


Wellness Program

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