Your First Chiropractic Visit
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history & information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Casey or Dr. McCrindle to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, & potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Casey or Dr.McCrindle to learn more about you, your condition, & expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
Examination & Treatment
After your consultation, Dr. Casey or Dr. McCrindle will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your joints & flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, & physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent. This may include spinal adjustments, exercise prescription, &/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Depending on your specific condition, we may require X-rays as well. X-rays can help us to develop the most effective treatment plan for you, & alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments & degeneration themselves. If we determine that x-rays are needed, we can help you to make the necessary arrangements to get them done.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, & at home exercises &/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits & routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, & maintain a positive mental state.
