How We Help
ConsultWhat will happen on my first visit?We have only two concerns during your first visit. One, what are your health concerns and two, can chiropractic help you. If after talking we think that we can help you, we’ll tell you right away. If we think that we can’t help you we will do our best to find someone who can.
During the initial consultation, we will take a thorough and complete personal history. You will be able to tell us about your health concerns, how it started, how it feels, what has worked for you in the past and what has not worked for you.
If after hearing about your problem it seems that your condition may be helped by chiropractic, we will perform an examination to evaluate your condition. As part of your chiropractic examination we will perform a postural examination, range of motion tests, kinesiology testing, orthopedic, and neurological examinations as well as gait analysis. We only accept patients for care when we believe that we have found the underlying cause of the problem and that we can help.
“Will I need x-rays?”
If after your consultation and examination we determine that x-rays of your spine are needed, we will send you for x-rays. X-rays are not needed for every person or every condition. The need for x-rays will be determined on a case-by-case basis and the reason for the tests will be explained to you before they are performed. The doctor will not prescribe or recommend any tests or procedures unless he feels they are absolutely necessary.
