As a new patient, there is some brief paperwork for you to fill out.. These documents give us general information about yourself and your health status.
New Patient Health History Form - Required
This is the most important document you’ll fill out as a new patient. It provides us with your health history and current health status.. Make sure to let us know of any questions, concerns or goals you have!
Once you’ve completed your health history, one of our providers will consult with you to discuss your concerns, goals and recommended a treatment plan.
History and Examination
To determine your path to optimal health, your doctor will ask you a series of questions related to your health and lifestyle.. Next, you’ll go through any necessary x-rays (they aren’t always necessary) and a series of tests to determine the health of your nervous system, including a postural exam and palpations.
X-rays are not always necessary, but they may be required in certain situations, especially if we need to rule out a serious health complication.
After your appointment,, your doctor will give you instructions for home activities and exercises. Your recommendations may include ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, and/or home exercises and stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
Before leaving your first appointment, your doctor will recommend a follow-up appointment. Usually,, patients are seen within 1-2 days after their first appointment and are given a complete review of findings. Your optimal treatment plan will also be discussed during your follow-up appointment.
