If you are unsure if chiropractic care can help you, feel free to call us with your questions. We're happy to talk with you.

We provide a unique approach to treatment using a combination of traditional methods and new technology to ensure that everyone receives effective care. 

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT?
1.  Patient Introduction

Upon entering the office, you will be greeted by a member of our Patient Care Services team.  They will provide you with new patient forms and a general health questionnaire to complete.  The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and the reason for your visit,  also your main area of concern.

2.  Conversation ~ Consultation

Once your new patient form has been completed, you will meet your chiropractic care provider and have a conversation ~ consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related questions, mobility concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

3.  History and Examination

In order to determine how well your functioning, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your health. An examination of your range of motion will be conducted.  Then specialized tests will be performed to determine the presence of any abnormal function in joints, muscles and nerves.

4.  X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require the doctor to send you for an X-Ray(s) to either rule out a more serious condition(s) or to assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

5.  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.

6.  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.

7.  Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit.  Generally speaking, patients are typically 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.

8.  Patient Care Services Receipt

Once you've received treatment, a fee for services is applied.  There are several payment options to consider. 

A statement may be printed at any time.  A receipt may be printed or emailed for your convenience.
