What to Expect As a New Chiropractic Patient
New Patient Forms
Upon entering our office, our staff will welcome you as a member of our family. We request that you complete our new patient forms to provide us with your health history and other important information prior to your first visit with us.
Next, you will begin your new patient examination. One of our specialists will perform a complete chiropractic examination that will include range of motion, orthopedic, and postural evaluations. This will also include a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your health-related issues, concerns, and potential treatment options. This aspect of the visit is intended to give our doctors a chance to learn more about you, your current state of health, and your expectations in order to determine how chiropractic care can best meet your goals.
To see is to know. Not to see is to guess. We refuse to guess with your health. X-rays help us prepare the most realistic wellness plan for you, as well as alerting us to any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even see their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you will experience your first adjustment. This will include a spinal check and may include an additional modality, such as muscle stimulation or traction. Treatment is interactive and specialized, so we encourage you to vocalize any questions or concerns.
Report of Findings
After your initial visit, we will set up a time for you to sit down with one of our doctors for a detailed report of findings. This visit is designed to discuss the doctors' recommendations based on a review of your health history, goals, and X-rays. During this visit, you will receive a wellness program that addresses your specific situation and needs. If you desire, our wellness team can also work with you to create healthy habits for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires acustomized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve proper spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, and maintain an all-around state of wellness.
Health Investment Visit
We believe that wellness is a priceless acquisition. However, we recognize that every family's financial situation is different. Therefore, as part of our new patient package, we include a Health Investment Visit. Our office participates as an in-network provider with several insurance programs. Since there are so many plans, and coverage varies widely, our specialized staff will develop a financial plan to best maximize your benefits and minimize out of pocket costs. During this visit, you are given the opportunity to sit down and discuss our suggested plan and address any questions or concerns you may have about your insurance benefits. Even if you have no insurance, or do not have chiropractic benefits, you can still benefit from a financial plan. Many patients pay directly for care and discover chiropractic to be extremely cost-effective and affordable.
