Upon entering the office, we have brief paperwork for you to complete. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
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.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
The Doctor's Report is an orientation on our philosophy of Chiropractic care as well as a detailed report of your findings and how it relates to your condition and interpretation of your X-rays.
Individualized Findings Report
Specific, individual findings and associated treatment plan recommendations. Finances will be discussed after a thorough understanding of the treatment plan.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first adjustment during this visit.
Prior to leaving the appointment, 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.
Scheduling Future Appointments for Your Follow-Up Visits
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.
