Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. If you have not already printed and filled out the new practice member forms off our website, we will request that you complete them when you get to our office. This paperwork provides us with your health history and some other general information.
It is our policy to charge a cancellation fee for all appointments canceled or rescheduled without 24 hours advance notice.
On your first visit, we will perform a complete chiropractic examination to test the health of your spine and nervous system. This may include a computerized scan and/or a complete set of X-rays.
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 degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings on your second visit. He will then address 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 and examining your spine and X-rays, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
After your Report of Findings, you will have your first adjustment.
At Home Care Instruction
Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest different at home care instructions which may include: ice application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.
