Your First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. You can also access this paperwork from the New Patient Registration Paperwork tab on this website. This will allow you to print, complete and bring this information with you to your fist visit, saving you time when you arrive.

Consultation and History

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation to discuss your health history, current problems, concerns, and potential treatment options.

Examination

A number of specialized tests will be performed to determine the cause or your problem and how to best treat your condition.

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. If you have had imaging studies (x-rays, MRI, CT) in the recent past we may be able to use those images instead of retaking new ones and encourage all patients to bring any recent studies with them to their first visit.

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. This may include spinal adjustments, rehabilitative services, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, 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.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

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.
