New Patient Information – Your Initial Visits
During your first visit to one of our offices you will be welcomed as a member of our family. Our friendly staff members will ask you to fill out our required forms which will help us gain a better understanding of your condition. To save time, you can print the New Patient Form now, complete the form, and bring with you to your appointment.
One of our Doctors will then talk to you, asking specific questions regarding your condition to determine the best treatment plan of action. If the doctor does not believe that chiropractic, physical therapy, pain management, or massage therapy will benefit you, he or she will refer you to another doctor in the area.
After a thorough consultation, you will have a complete exam including range of motion, orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical exams. The doctor may take x-rays at this time which will assist in gaining a better understanding about your condition.
X-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient’s condition and is considered on a case by case basis.
Report of Findings
Once all the information is collected and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment.
The purpose of treatment is to restore function and movement for the patient. We do this by stimulating the musculoskeletal system through therapies and massage, as well as gently aligning the body back into position.
