First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, unless you've already downloaded the appropriate paperwork from the links below, 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.

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.

X-ray Studies

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.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit after a report of findings of their examinaiton and radiological exams. Treatment may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies and is customized for each patient depending on their complaints, issues and overall health. We have various, safe techniques we use and as a team we will do our best to find the most safe and effective treatment for each patient.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, most 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. Click HERE to see some examples.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within a few days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time unless it was discussed earlier on your first visit along with a review of the Doctor's findings.
