First Visit


Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your concerns.


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health concerns, as well as potential care options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your concern. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. A thorough chiropractic assessment of your entire spine will be performed to locate all areas of vertebral subluxation.

X-Ray Studies, Advanced Imaging, and Labwork

While not necessary in most cases, your specific situation may require us to order x-rays or other diagnostic studies to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective care for you. To ensure the highest quality imaging and most accurate diagnosis, we refer to local radiology centers for these services.


Same Day Treatment

If it is determined that you are a candidate for chiropractic care, we can usually give you your first adjustment right away. If we feel your health concern would be best co-managed with a medical doctor, physical therapist, massage therapist, acupuncturist, or fitness coach, we will inform you. We are happy to provide referrals for local pratitioners. Nutritional advice and support for a healthy lifestyle, focusing on the use of whole foods and the highest quality supplements, is available as an integral feature of your care.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include home exercises and/or stretches, or avoidance of certain activities or positions. Nutritional instructions and support may be provided, when appropriate. Fitness and nutrition are critical components to your health. Our focus is to help you achieve, and more importantly, maintain your unique expression of health.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your concern will also be discussed during this time.
