Upon entering our office, our receptionists will welcome you as a member of our family. If you have not already completed our New Patient Form located in the New Patient Center, we will request that you complete this form upon your arrival. This paperwork provides us with your health history and vital information regarding your condition/health.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of our Doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our Doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and your treatment expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your health care goals.
After your consultation, our Doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your movement, body alignment, reflexes, strenght 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. During the examination, our Doctors will explain their initial findings and discuss potential treatment options for your care.
Depending on your specific condition, we may perform X-rays. X-rays help us analyze your condition, develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alerts us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they may even identify spinal misalignment and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Our Doctors at Community Chiropractic Center will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you may have, including:
- How we can help you?
- What type of treatment you will need?
- How frequently you may need treatment?
- Discuss the cost of care and payment options.
Our Doctors will discuss treatment recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Rest assured that our goal is to provide the optimal treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy modalities, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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. Our goal is to help our Community to attain optimal health and wellness!!!
