We want to ensure that when you enter our doors you know exactly what to expect. Once you have an appointment booked, you will receive an email with new patient forms.

On the first visit we will be doing two things, paperwork and a chiropractic exam.

Your First Visit

Initial Forms
This gives us the information necessary to discover the TRUE nature of your problem. Please be thorough and accurate. To save time in the office it is best if you fill out the initial forms before you arrive.

The consultation is a designated one-on-one time for you and the doctor to review your health history, address any concerns or questions that you may have, and explain how chiropractic care may help.

The Chiropractic Exam
Your first visit will be approximately 45 minutes long. It will include a health history consultation, physical examination, thermal scans, computerized postural assessment, and x-rays, if necessary.

All of these tests allow us to determine the most appropriate technique and approach to help you. It also gives us a baseline for future tests so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is improving.

Following the consultation the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic evaluation testing the health of your nervous system. Our exam is extensive and chiropractic focused. It will give us a deeper understanding of what is going on in your body. This will include a physical examination of your spine and a computerized postural exam.

X-Ray Study
Depending on your health history, age, and exam findings, we may suggest x-rays. X-rays give us the ability to see the alignment and motion of your spine. It gives us a clearer picture of spinal biomechanics and your spinal history.

At the end of your first visit we will schedule for your second appointment which we call the Report of Findings.

Your Second Visit

Report of Findings
This visit will explain the findings from your first visit, it will last approximately 45-60 minutes. This visit will allow us to explain how we can help you. We will start with a short video that will prepare you to understand your exam findings. The doctor will review your exam results, present your recommended personalized care plan, review financial options, and outline the benefits you can expect.

Your First Adjustment
At the end of your second visit you will have the opportunity to receive your first chiropractic adjustment. Our goal is to support you in the best manner possible. Some opt to use chiropractic care to build their general well being. Some opt to use chiropractic care to help with an immediate concern. We will support you to receive the type of care that you desire for yourself and/or your family.
