What to Expect

Your First Visit

By the time you arrive at our office, you will have spoken with Sara or Lainey and been instructed how to download our entry forms and have filled these out. These forms contain questions that provide us with an initial in-depth overview of your present and past health history.

 

Your first visit is a longer visit, and you will be with us for 45 minutes. There will be plenty of time for you and the doctor to consult and have the opportunity to fully explain your health concerns and ensure the doctor fully understands the reason for your visit to our office.

 

Next, the doctor will assess different aspects of your nervous system function utilizing the Insight Spinal Diagnostic Spinal Scanning System. This assessment will allow an in-depth study of how your nervous system is being impacted by your day to day stresses. These assessments are non-invasive, safe, and painless.

 

We will also perform a full physical examination in order to assess your posture, your spinal movement and balance, your muscle function and various aspects of nervous system function.

 

Once we have completed your exam, if we feel that chiropractic care is appropriate for your health concern, you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment. This will begin your journey to reduce and release various blocks that are affecting the function and flow of your nervous system and overall body function.

Your Second Visit

Your second visit to the office is also a longer visit. There is time set aside in order to sit with the doctor as he or she takes you through the results of your examination and Insight scans. The doctor will explain what all this means in your individual case and will lay out recommendations for treatment to allow your body to begin making positive changes toward better function and health.

Re-examinations

As you move through your care and positive changes begin, it is wise to take the time to periodically assess your progress. These re-examination appointments are longer sessions where all the initial tests and Insight scans are repeated. This allows the doctor to see how your body is responding to your care. The results of these tests will be discussed with you at a follow up visit, and further treatment recommendations will be made.

We pride ourselves in totally engaging with the patient through the time in our office and allowing them to know and fully understand everything about their care.
