The doctor will ask you questions to assess your condition and how it is affecting you, and then will proceed with an examination. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
You will then receive a thorough physical exam which will include standard orthopedic, neurological, postural, and other examinations as needed. After the initial Examination, the doctor may order additional testing to be performed. The doctor will do this to determine the cause of your condition. No additional testing will be performed in our office without a full explanation of the procedure, your options, and your consent.
Additional Testing which may be ordered may include: X-ray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, EKG, Stress Test, or Laboratory Testing. If you have recently had testing done, please bring in copies of the films, reports, and laboratory results to your first appointment along with a list of your current medications (include herbal and over the counter).
After the doctor has gathered and analyzed your information, examination, imaging, and testing results, the doctor will review his findings with you and explain recommendations for treatment.
A spouse or family member is always welcome to attend, but in light of COVID-19, please let us know beforehand if someone else is coming to your appointment with you.
Masks are required: All team members and patients are required to wear masks while inside our office.
Hand Washing and Hand Sanitizer: Use of the sinks located in the bathrooms or hallway outside the Physical Therapy Room is encouraged. Hand Sanitizer is available for your use in the reception area.
Screening: All team members and patients will have their temperature taken upon arrival and asked questions regarding their recent health history before arriving at our office.
Cleaning: Our team cleans treatment rooms with medical-grade disinfectant after each patient visit. Common touch points and surfaces throughout our office are cleaned hourly with the same medical-grade disinfectant. Extensive cleaning of the office is done at the end of each day.
Physical Distancing of at least 6 feet from others is required whenever possible: To encourage this we have significantly reduced the number of appointments available and the number of people permitted inside our office. This means our team is limited to essential team members only and patients are not permitted to bring guests with them to their appointment at this time unless they are a parent | legal guardian or a caretaker for a patient that requires support.
We ask that you arrive to your appointment on time which will help us to not have anyone waiting.
Filling out any required paperwork ahead of time will help minimize the amount of time you spend in the office. Our patient services director will coordinate any of these needs with you before your appointment.
Concerns or Questions: If you have any concerns or questions regarding your upcoming appointment please do not hesitate to ask us – we are here to help you.
After your Chiropractic Exam, you and your doctor will form a treatment plan personalized to your needs. No two patent’s treatment plans are exactly alike, so this is a collaborative process between you and your doctor in which they state what you need in order to get well, and you state what you can commit.
Once your treatment plan is established, you’ll receive your treatments, and the doctor will continue to evaluate your condition and track your progress until you get better.
