Office Hours

Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM to 12:00 Noon – 1:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Saturday, by appointment only.

 

Brief Paperwork

Please arrive at the office 20-25 minutes before your appointment time to fill out a few forms that assist us with obtaining general information about you and your condition. If you would like to get a head start on those forms, feel free to download and print them here.

 

Consultation

The doctor will review the information you provided and begin a discussion about your complaints, concerns, prior treatments and your health in general. Taking a history gives the doctor information to begin the examination.

 

History and Examination

After the history is obtained, the doctor will begin examining your area of complaint. This helps the doctor to determine if you are a candidate to receive chiropractic care. Various tests, procedures and maneuvers will be performed to help define the cause of your condition.

 

X-ray Studies

Examination findings may determine the need for x-rays, CT or MRI scans. Not every person needs to have imaging studies to begin treatment. The doctors follow evidence based protocols for the use of x-ray imaging.

 

Same Day Treatment

The doctor will go over the findings with you and discuss a treatment plan. Treatment can begin immediately. The type of care and supportive treatment will be outlined as well as what is expected with treatment.

 

Home Instructions

Instructions will be given for self-care. This includes ice/heat or exercises. Suggestions for work and recreation will be discussed. Our goal is to get you as well as we can, as economically as we can and quickly as we can!
