First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, you will want to tell us about yourself so we know the background of your health and what you want to achieve through chiropractic care.  The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.  Your first visit is very detailed and often requires an hour and a half to complete; therefore, in attempt to help shorten your visit, we have provided your paperwork on this website (click the patient downloads link to the left) so you can print and complete your new patient paperwork before coming to your first visit.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, you will be asked various questions related to your condition.  Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

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.

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.
