Your First AppointmentLaptop computer on desk

When you come in, Margaret or Vanessa will greet you and have you fill out a brief application for care. Next, Tami will take you back for your health screening. Tami will also help our doctors through the exam process. She is skilled in the equipment and loves helping educate people on how to live a healthier lifestyle.

Thorough Testing for Exact Answers

One of our doctors will take you back for a consultation and an initial chiropractic spine evaluation to determine if this is the right place for you. If we think we can help, we’ll then do a full examination to see exactly what’s going on.

Along with a detailed history, we will run tests including thermography, muscle tension, EMG, heart rate variability, a stress test, and a posture assessment. We may also refer you out for X-rays if we see something that demands a closer look. We’re thorough because we want to see what’s happening from every angle so we know exactly where the problem is coming from and what areas of your body it’s affecting. After that, we’ll have you check out and schedule your next appointment. This first visit takes 45-60 minutes.

Your Second Appointmentreceptionist at desk

We schedule second appointments at 10:00 am or 3:00 pm. On your second visit, you may be with a group of patients who are also just starting care. Our doctors will go over common information together and then break out individually to go over your results. The order of arrival will determine the order of receiving your results. We request you bring your spouse or a friend to this visit so they can understand what the problem is and how they can support you. Having a support system is essential in your healing process.

The second visit allows us to go over all testing results with you so you understand what we’re seeing. We’ll let you know if you need chiropractic care, lay out a recommended care plan based on the findings and your history, and discuss finances. Your care plan can range from 12-155 visits and take anywhere from 1-24 months.

If you decide to proceed with care, you’ll receive your first adjustment at the end of this visit. You will then schedule your future adjustments with MaryAnn. Please bring your calendar so we can find the best time for your schedule. The second appointment typically takes 45 minutes.

Regular Visits

Regular adjustments take about 5-10 minutes. If you need to schedule or make any payments, please allow additional time. If possible, please handle the scheduling and finances at the beginning of the visit so you can relax and leave without having to disconnect from your adjustment process. When you are shown to a table, place your belongings in the basket provided and lie face down on the table. Otherwise, have a seat and wait for the next available table. Every 10-12 visits, we’ll take an extra 15 minutes to reassess your progress, just to make sure we’re seeing the results we expect.
