What to Expect

After you make an appointment by contacting the office, you will fill out the required paperwork for you or your child, prior to the first visit.

At the first visit a thorough medical history will be taken, and consultation given. Then the doctor will do a thorough chiropractic exam which includes posture, range of motion, and palpation relating specifically to you or your child. There will be no adjustments given on the first visit so the doctor can come up with a plan of action from all the information gathered. **There are certain circumstances that a patient can be adjusted on the first visit, call the office for questions.

You can expect that the first visit will last no longer than 1 hour, depending on the difficulty of your specific case.

The second visit consists of the doctor explaining what they found, and discussing the plan of action specific to you or your child for the treatments that will be rendered. An adjustment will be given at this visit.

Consultations and Wellness Visits can be scheduled at this time, but duration between visits will vary depending on your personal wellness needs.

For your convenience, if you have an infant, young child or a child with special needs that has a hard time being in the office for an extended period of time, your child has a behavioral issue, or you child is embarrassed to talk about an issue they are having, ie. bedwetting, a consultation may be given over the phone prior to the first exam.
