What To Expect

“What will happen on my first visit?”
This seems to be what everyone wants to know before they will even take one step in the door. This is certainly understandable if you’ve never been to see a chiropractor before. You likely wouldn’t walk into a restaurant without knowing what type of food was served, and you wouldn’t walk into a doctor’s office without knowing what to expect.

If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you likely already have a lot of questions and lot of ideas about what a chiropractor does. So let’s talk about what will happen on your very first visit to our office.

Consultation
During the initial consultation, we’re going to sit down and you will have a chance to tell us all about your health problem. We want to know how it started, what it feels like, what you’ve done about it so far, and what may have worked before… even if it was just temporarily.

Examination
If after hearing about your problem it seems that your condition may be helped by chiropractic, we will perform an examination. There have been times where it has been very clear to us following the consultation that our office is simply not the best place for the patient.

We don’t accept patients for care that we don’t believe we can help, so we first evaluate your condition during the consultation and then perform range of motion tests, as well as chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological examinations.

“Will I need x-rays?”

If after your consultation and examination we determine that x-rays of your spine are needed, we will perform an x-ray examination. X-rays are not needed for every person or every condition. The need for x-rays will be determined on a case-by-case basis and the reason for the tests will be explained to you before they are performed.

At the end of your first visit, you will be scheduled for a report of findings visit. This follow up visit is a second consultation in which I go over the results of your examinations and tests. More importantly, I will also explain exactly what you have and how I can help.

All of your treatment and financial options will be explained in detail at this time.
