We want you to feel comfortable with the decision of joining our practice. Therefore, please read the information below and if you have any questions, please call our office for an answer.



Consultation

After a review of your Personal History form, you wil receive a consultation, at which time it will be explained to you what we do, what you can expect and what you should not expect, if you choose chiropractic care in this office.

History and Examination

At the conclusion of the initial health consultation, we will perform a complete and comprehensive chiropractic wellness examination that will test your reflexes and range of motion, as well as many standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations.

A chiropractic evaluation focuses on the nervous system and the spine which protects it. The spine protects the brain stem, the spinal cord and the spinal nerve roots. Normal transmission of the nrve impulses are vital to the funcation of your entire body. All of these structures work together and are intimately related. So, your evaluation is directed toward your nervous system and it's protective spinal structures, regardless of what symptoms yu do or do not have at any given time



X-ray Studies

A series X-rays may be needed to allow us to clearly determine a proper care plan. X-rays provide us with an objective diagnostic tool that will show us the position of the spinal bones, as well as the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. We also use X-rays to determine how long a subluxation has been developing.


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.

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.

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.
