First Visit

Patient History

The Doctor will discuss the nature and extent of your condition with you to determine if chiropractic care is an appropriate treatment for the condition. If chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition, we readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider.
 

Physical Examination

Orthopedic, neurological and spinal examinations, as well as posture analysis are performed to determine general health status and specific problems.
 

X-rays

X-rays may be utilized to further evaluate the condition if necessary.
 

Diagnosis

Diagnosis is based on history, examination and X-ray/lab findings.
 

Treatment Plan

A personal treatment plan will be developed for you. Treatment methods, along with spinal manipulation, may include massage, electrical muscle stimulation, light mechanical traction and controlled exercise. It may also include lifestyle counseling, such as providing exercises aimed at building flexibility, strength and overall well-being.
