Upon entering the office, you should have already completed your paperwork via the online portal link to paperwork. This will be emailed to you ahead or your appointment. Should you have difficulties completing that, please arrive 20 minutes early as we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Having paperwork filled out ahead of time is appreciated.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what the root cause of your condition is, the doctor will ask you more in depth questions related to your condition. Next, specialized tests will be performed to focus in on which structures of your body are affected and to what extent. The following tests are designed to help find the root cause of your condition:
- Range of Motion
- Bio-structural and orthopedic exams
- Postural Analysis
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.)
Report of Findings
At the end of your exam, you will be given convenient appointment times for two follow-up visits. On the first follow up, the doctor will explain and give you understanding of the cause of your condition. If your case is accepted, the doctor will perform your first treatment that day. The doctor assesses how your body responds to treatment and then creates his/her recommendations. During the second report of findings visit, you will receive the doctors’ best recommendations to correct your condition, any and all questions regarding out-of-pocket costs and insurance contributions will also be discussed. Prior to beginning any further treatment, you will have seen and approved this plan of care. Our goal is not to just treat your pain, but to correct the underlying cause. Instead of medication and surgery, we prefer to use effective, natural chiropractic care to deliver the best results. While we certainly want to help you to feel better, we also want to make sure we affect your total overall health in the best way possible.
After receiving a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation, relevant diagnostic imaging/testing will be done, most commonly x-rays. Once we have this data, we then come together as a team to discuss your individual case and come up with a plan of care designed specifically for you and your clinical condition. We then present to you a report of findings outlining our proposed plan of care. Prior to beginning any treatment, you will have seen and approved this plan of care after it is carefully explained to you. Our goal is not to just treat your pain, but to correct the underlying cause. Instead of medication and surgery, we prefer to use effective, natural chiropractic care to deliver the best results.
