First Visit

Brief Paperwork

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.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will promptly be brought into an examination room by our chiropractic assistant who will review your paperwork and take your vital signs. Then, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, the doctor will perform an extensive chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological examination to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. If x-ray studies are warranted, the doctor will refer you to one of the local hospitals to have the x-rays taken.

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, various therapies, and/or massage. Please see our treatments page for the various therapies we perform.

Home Instructions

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. If warranted, you will be given home therapeutics with instructions which may include, cervical pillows, lumbar pillows, ice packs/hot packs and various analgesic creams.

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 depending on your specific condition.
