What to Expect
Your initial visit begins with a consultation. Your doctor takes a case history and asks about your past and present condition(s). Next, the doctor performs a full orthopedic, physical, neurological, and chiropractic examination to evaluate the nature of your problem. This examination generally includes a series of basic physical tests, as well as specialized chiropractic evaluations of spinal movement, posture, and muscle strength.
To better assess your condition, the doctor typically takes a full set of x-rays using our state-of-the-art on-site facility. Before your next appointment, the doctor will study the results of your tests and x-rays to determine your diagnosis, and reviews how to best proceed with your diagnosis and care.
At your next appointment, the doctor reviews the results of your tests with you to determine if your condition falls under the scope of chiropractic treatment. If the doctor decides that your condition is not suited to chiropractic care, we will refer you to another highly qualified specialist and provide them with a full report of our findings.
We strongly recommend that you bring a Health Partner with you on this visit. The doctor may be going over some things that are new and different to you, and having another person there to listen to the recommendations will help you get the most from your care. Every aspect of your treatment will be explained to you in advance, including the cause of your problem, how long your treatment will take, and how much it will cost.
