Getting Started

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.*TIP: Print/Fill this out ahead of time in the comfort of your home!


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can help you to meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, our trained staff will perform a non-invasive, computerized spinal assessment of current neurospinal function. Then, the doctor will perform a chiropractic examination checking your reflexes, posture and flexibility. Other standard neurological and orthopedic tests will be performed as necessary. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious underlying spinal conditions. Our office has an on-site digital X-ray facility to make this procedure as safe and convenient as possible.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and the doctor has done a thorough analysis, they will give you a detailed report of their findings and answer any questions, typically on the next business day. These questions include:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

The doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.  Our goal is to provide the best care and wellness program to meet your needs.


Treatment

 Following your Report of Findings, you can choose to  experience your first chiropractic adjustment. Our doctors are proficient in several different types of gentle, specific chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic care in this office is an interactive experience, so  you can ask questions, or express concerns about your care or condition anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of the office.  If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to help create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.  Every person is unique, therefore every wellness plan is tailored to the needs of that individual.  The goals of our wellness program are for you to achieve optimal neurospinal function, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and maintain a positive mental state.

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
