Your First Visit

Consultation

During your first visit, we do a lot of listening.

During your first visit, we do a lot of listening.

The purpose of our initial consultation is we can get to know each other.

We Listen

During a brief conversation and review of your health history, we try to determine if you’re a good candidate for Chiropractic Care. We’ll ask a few questions and do a lot of listening.

A Partnership

The consultation also gives you an opportunity to tour our office, interview your Chiropractor and learn a bit more about Chiropractic. Since ours is a partnership approach to better health, it’s important that you’re comfortable with the personalities, procedures and policies of our office. The consultation is a great way to find that out.

The Next Step

If we don’t think we can help, we’ll tell you. If we think we can help, and you agree, we can usually proceed to the next step, which is a thorough Physical Examination. Our patients appreciate the fact that we explain everything in advance!

Examination:

If our consultation suggests that you’d likely be helped with chiropractic care, we’ll need to perform a complete examination. Our patients often comment on how thorough our examination is, compared with other practitioners they’ve consulted.

Our examination varies based upon what we discover during the evaluation of your health history. What we find will tell us which examinations we need to conduct:

Physical

We conduct a thorough examination to locate the cause of your health problem.

This is a general evaluation that may include the recording of height, weight, pulse, blood pressure and similar objective measurements.

Orthopedic

These examinations test your ability to turn, bend and move key joints of your skeletal system through their expected range of motion.

Neurological

We’ll test your dermatomes, deep tendon reflexes, muscle strength and other aspects pointing to the health of your central nervous system.

Chiropractic

These tests can include postural evaluations, static and dynamic palpation and other procedures to reveal neurological problems.

On your second visit we will discuss the results of the consultation & examination.
