How It All Works
You’ve made a commitment to better health and have scheduled an appointment with us. Here’s what happens during your first visit:
- Before your appointment, if we have emailed forms to you, please fill them out on a computer (not a mobile device) and submit.
- Once you’re in the exam room we conduct a detailed health history, including discussion of any injuries or traumas (recent or in the past) that could have affected your spine and nervous system. We talk about your health concerns, and we also work together to set your health goals.
- Next, we do a comprehensive spinal exam, which may include x-rays. You also may be asked to move forwards, sideways, and backwards and perform other tasks. We’re looking for vertebrae, the small bones in your spine, that have been misaligned. Misaligned vertebrae can cause pain and a variety of health issues. I will also look for signs of nerve damage
- During your next visit, we talk about what I saw on the x-rays of your spine and the results of your spinal exam. Then we discuss the right treatment plan for you to ensure that this is your healthiest year ever. This is a collaborative effort where you are involved in making the decisions.
