Phase I: What to expect on your first visit…
1. Patient Forms
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our new patient forms and return them to our receptionist. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Please bring your Driver’s License and Medical Insurance card with you on your first visit.
Next, you will have a free consultation with the doctor to discuss any health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination protocol—testing your reflexes and flexibility. Then the Nurse Practitioner will then do a thorough medical diagnostic to understand each patient’s physical and mental condition. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests might be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
4. X-ray Studies
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays to help us develop the clear and effective treatment plan for you. They alert our medical professionals 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 spine misalignment and degeneration themselves.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first chiropractic treatment! This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massages. Treatment is interactive, so you can express your concerns anytime during our treatment process.
