Your First Visit

Patient Forms

visit_forms.pngUpon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you, and will request that you complete our patient intake survey and other necessary forms.  This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition as well as insight into some of the factors that may have contributed to your situation.  Please fill these surveys out completely, as the data is very valuable to our approach to healing and wellness.  You will also be asked to watch a short, introductory video that will explain some of the details of chiropractic care and what to expect in working with your doctor.


Consultation

visit_consultation.pngNext, you will have a consultation with one of the doctors 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 your expectations to determine how chiropractic care might help you meet your goals.


Examination

visit_exam.pngAfter your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination as well as testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic and postural tests will be performed as well, using state-of-the art equipment.  However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.  At the conclusion of this initial appointment you can choose to experience your first treatment.


Report of Findings

visit_report.pngOnce the information is collected  and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings.  This is normally done on a second visit, to allow time for all the data to be studied and correlated.  The doctor will answer any questions you might have, including:

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

The doctor will discuss observations made, and will also notify you if your condition  might require care with other providers.  At this time you will be provided with the recommended treatment and wellness program to meet your needs.


Treatment

visit_treatment.pngAt the conclusion of the Review of Findings, you can choose to  move forward with your care.  This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express questions about the different styles of treatment at any point along the way. 

Another key action at this point is to attend our introductory class on Network Spinal Analysis so you can better understand how our chiropractors work and what to expect at each visit.  As your body undergoes structural re-alignments, it's important to recognize these changes as progress!  We also offer an advanced class for you when you reach that stage of your care.

We welcome your feedback and interest in our unique approach to health and wellness!


Wellness Program

visit_wellness.pngPrior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program for you 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 establish 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 to assist you to achieve good spinal alignment, augmented with a healthy diet, an exercise plan, and some guidelines to create wellness in your life.  Good health is a result of many factors, and our patients find that following the treatment plan provided is a very positive path to recovered health and wellness on many planes.  Creating Wellness is our goal, not just getting someone out of pain.  Working together, we can help you create this!

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
