Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. New clients can download these forms on our website to save time.
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. If you are a candidate for chiropractic care we will let you know; if you are not a candidate for chiropractic care, you will be referred to the appropriate health care provider.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
We encourage you to bring in any x-rays, MRI, etc. that you have had taken in the last three years. We order x-rays and other imaging from the local hospitals.
Prior to leaving, patients will 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, new patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Ideal treatment options for your condition will be discussed during this time. Your treatment program will consist of gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments and could also include a nutritional assessment and recommendations , spinal strengthening exercises, customized foot orthotics and laser therapy.
