Upon entering our office, Samantha (our receptionist and Chiropractic Assistant), will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Detailed Health Intake
Next, you will have a consultation with the Chiropractic Assistant, Samantha, to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, either of the doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
After your physical exam, a series of computerized scans and tests will be performed using our NASA Certified Technology: The Insight Station. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to measure the functionality of your nervous system quantitatively, and gives us new insight to your health and the health of your nervous system.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and level of degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, you will make an appointment for your follow-up visit. During this visit the doctors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, nervous system, and X-rays, the doctors will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctors will provide the absolute best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Human Potential Program
As part of your care, the doctors requires all of their new patients attend the Human Potential Program. This 45 minute talk is probably one of the most important visits you'll have here in our office. It is an orientation that outlines what to expect while under care. It also helps to set the basis for what chiropractic is all about. The doctors try to break down several misconceptions that exist surrounding health and healthcare.
At the conclusion of your Report of Findings, you can choose to experience your first adjustment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Your care is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of adjustment at anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
