Upon entering our office, Teresa will welcome you as a member of our chiropractic family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center before coming into the practice. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Phil or Dr. Kyle to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Phil or Dr. Kyle will perform a complete chiropractic examination including standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may send you out for X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Phil or Dr. Kyle will go over the findings and explain the meanings of the results. Questions you may want to ask include:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine , Dr. Phil or Dr. Kyle will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Phil and Dr. Kyle will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you will experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, Dr. Phil or Dr. Kyle will suggest a followup visit to see how the effects of the first visit went. The follow up visit is intended to determine the length of treatment and to see how your body responds to chiropractic care. A care plan and second adjustment will be administered at your followup visit if you choose to sign up for care with RxWellness Spine & Health.
