What to Expect


Your First Visit

Hands and Teamwork

We’ll partner with you on your journey toward health! Call us today!

You’ll check in at the front desk when you arrive. The necessary paperwork can be found on our website or completed upon arrival. If you choose not to complete the paperwork ahead of time, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the forms in the office. We’ll have asked you about your insurance coverage when you call to schedule and have that information ready for you. Please bring your current insurance card and photo ID with you so we can make sure we have all of the correct information to file your claims. If your appointment is due to an injury caused by an auto accident please bring all information relevant to the case with you.

You’ll then go back to the exam room to meet your chiropractor, Dr. Chris. he will go over your health history and any current and past complaints you have. You’ll discuss what chiropractic is and what our examination entails.

The examination includes:

  • The Insight™ Subluxation Station Scans (looking at overall nervous system function):
    • Thermal scan
    • Heart rate variability scan
    • Static and dynamic Surface Electromyography (SEMG)
  • Digital X-rays, if necessary as determined by the scans

After the examination, the first day is over. We’ve now collected all the information needed to analyze your case. Please plan on spending about an hour with us. Fifteen minutes can be added to this time if paperwork wasn’t completed ahead of time.

If the patient is a special needs child, we can do the initial consultation and take their history from their parent over the phone, minimizing the time they spend in our office. Please let us know if this is something you would like to do when  you call to make the initial appointment.

Your Second Visit

On your next visit, you’ll get a full report of our findings from the first visit exam findings and we will go over the scans and any X-rays we took. Before we being care, we will let you know how long it’s going to take to reach your goals and what the costs involved will be.

At our office, you’ll always receive options for care depending on the exam findings and your health goals. If you’re ready to start with care, you’ll receive an adjustment on this visit. Your second appointment will take about 45 minutes.

Third and Subsequent Visits

Once you’ve decided on what your goal for care is, we’ll hit the ground running. Depending on your exam findings we may have you perform specific exercises like the wobble chair or cervical traction for your neck. These tools are part of your care for proper spinal hygiene and healthy posture. Then, you’ll receive your adjustment.

You also have the option to sign up for a financial plan on this visit.

Options for Care

At our office, you can choose which option for care is right for you. Not everyone wants to have chiropractic care for the rest of their lives while others want to see us every week even when they’re feeling great. You make the decision of how far you want chiropractic to take your health. We’ll never pressure you, but rather empower you with information, so that you can make the right choice for your health.
