First visit ~ what to expect
Your first visit will include a thorough history of your current or past health concerns and experiences. An examination will be performed including surface EMG, thermal scan, asymmetry evaluation, orthopedic and neurological testing, postural analysis, range of motion and evaluation for subluxation of your spine. Please allow one hour for your initial experience in our office. After the doctors have spent significant time reviewing your examination and coordinating your care they will meet with you on your second visit.This visit will be comprised of a review of your findings and an explanation of insurance and office policies. After you are fully informed and give us permission to go forward with your care plan, you will receive your first adjustment on the second visit.
second visit ~ your review of findings
Your second visit will start with a thorough review of the evaluation taken during your examination. The folder with specific handouts pertaining to your health concerns and subsequent recommendations will be handed to you. After the review findings our office manager will tell you about our office policies and also discuss any insurance coverage that may pertain to you. After you meet with our office manager you will receive your first adjustment which will be fully explained and demonstrated for you before we start the hands-on process. Our doctors primarily use three different types of chiropractic techniques: Thompson drop (modern force adjustments with a segmental drop table), activator (adjusting instrument to give consistent low force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments) and diversified/manual ( slightly more assertive adjustment techniques made with specific hands on movements). All of these techniques are proven gentle and very effective. Our doctors also use adjunctive therapies like heat and ice, active release technique tm, massage, traction and therapeutic exercise instruction.
follow-up visits ~ your adjustments

After the care plan has been completed to a success indicator progress evaluation will be performed.

At that time it will be established what the next best steps towards wellness are for your individual health profile. Please allow 30 minutes for follow-up visits to account for adjustments, heat and ice time, exercise instruction and check in /check out.
