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. For all who are able to come 5-10 minutes prior to their appointment time, you are welcome to do so. If you would like us to bill your insurance, please be sure to bring in your card and a copy will be taken.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you 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.

Your specific condition may require x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. If this is necessary, we will send you to one of the local x-ray facilities affiliated with your health plan or to your primary care doctor so he may order them. In most cases, x-rays are not necessary.

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, physical therapies, soft tissue therapies, and exercise.

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
Healing occurs when regularly scheduled appointments are made. The doctor usually likes to make 3 appointments close together to activate the healing process and to see how you respond to care.
