Just as our mission statement says..."To provide the finest care available, leading the chiropractic profession as a responsible health care provider. We will offer education and knowledge so more people will realize the benefits of chiropractic and maintain a higher level of health." In order for us to achieve these goals we must gather some information from you on your first visit. This information will allow us to diagnose your condition, have an in-depth knowledge of how your nervous system is functioning and formulate a plan of care that best suits your needs.
On your first visit there will be several forms to fill out that pertains to general information about you, your insurance, and health history. This paperwork can be filled out in our office on your first visit or can be accessed online so you can expedite your first visit by having this information complete prior to entering our office. Please see the home page for the links to this information.
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.
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. These test results, along with xray evaluation, will help the doctor diagnose your condition and formulate a treatment plan.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
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, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
