Patient Forms

Upon your first visit, we will request that you complete our patient form. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with our chiropractor, Dr. John, to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, we will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, we will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, we will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition requires care with other providers.  Our doctors  will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

The Art of the Chiropractor

The Art of Chiropractic Body Alignment

Your entire skeletal structure has a natural and healthy alignment if it is formed properly by nature.

Injury

When an injury occurs, that alignment of bone structure may be throw-off, and the surrounding muscles and ligaments may tense-up to hold the injured area in a fixed position, trying to prevent further injury.  While this fixed position may be a good temporary safeguard, it can become problematic.  Injuries often cause a misalignment of the spine or neck or even a limb joint, shoulder, knee, ankle.  Muscles holding this fixed position can exacerbate the injury.  If this misalignment and muscle tension remain untreated for a length of time, the result is often severe pain (nerve pain) and can even lead to serious degeneration of a joint or vertebrae.

Skill of the Chiropractor

It is the skill of the chiropractor to correct these misalignments through physical adjustments and also to relax the muscle tension.  The use of message or electrical muscle stimulation are common methods of relaxing the muscles after or before a treatment.

Self Help

While an injury may require several chiropractic treatments during the healing process, there are several things a patient can do to help their condition.  Stretching, walking, icing (ice, ice pack) or heat treatment (heating pad, hot water bottle, hot shower, hot jacuzzi).  Certain supplements may also help.

Chiropractic Tools

There are also chiropractic tools available.  Orthotic shoe inserts can help correct a misalignment in the foot which may be causing a walking or standing problem.  The orthotic aligns the bottom of the foot which supports the entire body, ankle, knee, hip and back—the whole column.

Another  chiropractic tool is the cervical pillow.  This pillow is designed to maintain the natural curvature of your neck while lying on your back or sleeping.

The reason these tools are so effective is that they support the natural and proper alignment of your body, which nature may fail to do at times.  While an injury is healing and even after it is healed, it is wise to support the alignments by whatever means possible, for as long as possible.
