Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with the chiropractor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Carley will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes 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.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including: 1. How can you help me? 2. How often do I need to come in? 3. What will my treatment cost? After reviewing your health history, goals and examining your spine and X-rays, the doctor will discuss recommendations and provide the best treatment for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you get to experience your first treatment with us. Which includes spinal adjustments, exercises to improve spinal posture and depending on X-ray findings cervical traction.
