What to expect
New to us? Here’s what to expect at your first appointment.
First, you’ll complete a set of intake forms (downloadable here) and turn them in at your complimentary consultation appointment. These forms will give us vital information to assess your health condition.
During your consultation appointment, you and one of our doctors will take time to survey your health concerns. It’s a perfect time to ask questions. This important conversation will help you and the doctor to determine if chiropractic care is right for you and if we are your perfect fit.
Immediately following this conversation, you’ll have a complete chiropractic examination, which includes posture screening, range of spinal mobility, and a computerized evaluation of nerve function.
The computerized evaluation uses three sensors—a Heart Rate Variability (HRV) monitor, Spinal Thermal Scan, and sEMG (surface electromyography, which evaluates muscle activity) to determine your Core Score™. The Core Score™ reflects the efficiency of your nervous system as it relates to everyday stressors of life, and it gives the doctor a point of reference to develop the care plan that best fits your health needs.
In some cases, spinal X-rays can help us further understand the condition of the spine and may or may not be recommended.
The first visit usually (but not always) concludes with a chiropractic adjustment and possibly therapy to begin the process of restoring health to your nerve system, muscles, and joints. The doctor will determine if an adjustment on your first visit is appropriate following the results of your evaluation.
At the conclusion of your first visit, you will receive home care instructions so that you can assist in your own health process. We’ll also schedule a follow-up appointment to review the results of your evaluation and to discuss the treatment plan to begin your journey into good health.
We are excited to share in your wellness journey and look forward to seeing you soon!
