What to Expect On Your 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 have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.  At this time, we will determine if chiropractic care can benefit you or if referral to a specialist is necessary. 

History and Examination

In order to determine a proper diagnosis, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of detailed, specialized examinations will be conducted to determine how to best manage your case. 

During your initial examination, our doctors carefully and thoroughly conduct various orthopedic, neurological, and visceral examinations as warranted.

X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require that we take x-rays.  X-rays are taken at the discretion of the doctor to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Report of Findings and Treatment

After the initial consultation, examination and appropriate diagnostic studies are completed, a specific care plan will be recommended if the doctor determines that your condition can be treated with chiropractic care.  The doctor will review the results of your examination with you, including X-Ray findings.  Treatment plans vary on a case by case basis, but they may include chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic modalities, active and passive exercise programs, rehabilitation, and lifestyle modification advice.

Homework

To truly maximize your health, certain lifestyle changes may be necessary.  This is why our patients will be provided activities such as stretching and exercise to conduct at home.  Only you are in charge of your health.

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 of their initial examination (if necessary) and are provided with a complete review of findings.
