First visit

  • Patient Forms:
    Upon entering our facility, you will be greeted by our receptionists. Bring your insurance information, your Identification card/Driver’s license and medication list (if applicable). You will have a few paper forms to sign the day of your visit. You should have received a link to complete your new patient registration form prior to your appointment. It is important that this is completed beforehand. Once all paperwork is in order, you will be able to see the doctor. 
  • Consultation:
    Your first visit is designed to gather information about you, your health history, condition/s and your expectations. This will help determine whether chiropractic care is the right choice for you. Please be prepared to answer detailed questions concerning your current health concerns as well as your past health history.
  • Examination:
    After your consultation, a complete chiropractic examination will be performed that includes testing your reflexes, your ranges of motion, as well as other standard neurologic, orthopedic, postural and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
  • ​​X-ray studies:
    Your specific condition may require us to take X-rays to make a complete evaluation. X-rays of your spine help us rule out more serious conditions and also assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
  • Treatment:
    Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at their first appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is an interactive process, so feel free to discuss the style of adjustment that you will be most comfortable with.
  • At Home Therapy
    Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a therapy program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. A special pillow or brace may be recommended. We may discuss your working postures/activities and make recommendations for change.
  • Report of findings/treatment plan:
    Once all the information and examinations have been performed, you will receive a report of findings to answer the three most common questions:
    • Can you help me?
    • What do you recommend that I do to get better?
    • How long will this take?
    After discussing your health history, your health care goals, examining your spine and reviewing any X-rays or tests, you will cover treatment recommendations. If you have a condition that requires care with other health care providers, the doctor will make appropriate recommendations. If chiropractic services can help you, treatment recommendations will be discussed with you to help you achieve your functional goals.
