Many people are often overwhelmed, and maybe even nervous, when visiting a doctor for the first time. Paperwork needs to be completed, an honest discussion needs to be had, and a diagnosis will follow. What you will find once visiting our office is that the stigma of a doctor is no where to be found. You will be welcomed with a warm greeting, you can complete the paperwork in the comfort of your own home, and we will simply have a conversation on strategies that will contribute to the quality of your life. We have been in existence for many years in our beautiful community and after working with 1,000’s of people, we are confident that your experience in our office will be like nothing that has ever taken place in your life. We have patients who frequently visit the practice because, “It just feels so right!” Therefore, we encourage you NOT to feel overwhelmed and NOT to be afraid, because the relationship that you establish with Chiropractic First will be long lasting and provide you with everything you need when it comes to your health.Our first visit is the information gathering time because this is where we begin with the question of ‘Why.’ This first meeting will last about 60 minutes for both the consult and the examination. This is foundational because it will offer our team an opportunity to gain an understanding for visit two and beyond. In the second visit, we will spend between 30-45 minutes reviewing all the information gathered in the first visit in order to develop a custom program for each individual to follow. In addition, we will answer any questions, while completely covering the costs of participation.
With this being said, we want to make sure that you know EXACTLY what to expect so we have decided to go into greater detail below:
New Patient Forms: We encourage you to complete the NEW PATIENT FORMS prior to visiting the practice because this will save approximately 15-20 minutes and allow you to feel extremely comfortable in your own home. If for some reason you have any questions, one of our chiropractic assistants will support you once in the office.
Consultation: During the initial Health Consultation, we are here to LISTEN and SUPPORT you and all of your needs. We have highly trained team who will have a conversation with you about what you desire from your life and what you feel is preventing you from getting to this place. We have had people of all ages and all activity levels truly benefit from the initial consultation because it allowed them to assess their current well-being and then communicate their definition of a life without limitations.
Examination: At the conclusion of the initial health consultation, we will perform a complete and comprehensive chiropractic wellness examination that will test your reflexes, range of motion, as well as many standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. You are in control of your health and this will be the conversation that we have during the time that you share.
X-RAYS: Your condition might require an xray analysis in order to truly assess where the challenge resides within your body. If/when we decide to perform a series of xrays, this will allow us to clearly determine the next steps.X-rays provide us with an objective diagnostic tool, along with important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. We also use x-rays to determine how long the subluxation have been in the making.
Report of Findings: You will be scheduled for your Report of Findings within a few days of your initial visit, which is where we will determine the best Treatment Plan, consisting of chiropractic care, therapies, and/or soft tissue massage. Our office is extremely unique with its chiropractic care, and we have the most state of the art assessment technology that will support us in the analysis of your condition so that we can provide objective feedback.In addition, we will instruct you on a Wellness Program that will allow you to reach and exceed your health goals. This will be catered to meet your needs, but could include ice or heat if you are experiencing pain, followed by nutritional advice, exercise tips, strategies for stress relief, etc.
We recognize that every body is extremely unique and different, which is why we consistently update and customize your wellness programs. The foundation for our overall health is based on proper spinal alignment, nutritious foods, regular exercise, high quality supplementation, and a variety of stress relief techniques.
We look forward to working with you so that YOU can live a life of complete health and vitality!
