What to Expect as a New Patient

First Visit/ Initial Exam: In order to determine if and how Chiropractic Care will benefit you, we will complete a thorough one hour, head-to-toe examination. Prior to coming into the clinic, we ask that patients complete our Patient Intake Form (Click Here – to download the form). Your appointment will start with a consultation with the Doctor to review your history and any current concerns. Following the consult, the doctor along with the Clinical Assistant, will perform four types of testing: Neurological (sensory and reflex), Orthopedic (range of motion and joint function), Muscular (strength and balance) and Radiographic (x-rays).

 

Second Visit/Report of Findings: We will report the results of your tests and answer all of your questions. If Chiropractic is right for you, we’ll build a personalized schedule of care for you to start treatment. If you wish to start care right away, once your report is complete, the doctor will talk you through your first adjustment. This appointment usually takes about 30 minutes.

 

Workshops: We offer a complimentary one hour workshop for all new patients to attend. The workshop is meant to inform new patients about Chiropractic, basic health practices (nutrition, exercise), sleep methods and ends with an open questions/answer session.

 

Regular Visit/Adjustment Appointment: A typical visit will be much shorter, but just as important! Once your personalized schedule of care has been determined, each adjustment appointment will be about 5 – 10 minutes.
