What to Expect as a New Patient

In preparation for your Chiropractic appointment each person will be asked to fill out forms, which can be found on our website, please click on this link. You can also fill the forms out in the office at the time of your appointment.  This will provide all the information we require concerning your health history.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis

 

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA Testing) will be preformed on your first visit to our office,  your chiropractic exam. This test measures overall 

cellular health and is a great tool our Chiropractors use in conjunction with other testing to quantify your health. This test only takes about 5 minutes and 

requires no effort on your part. In order for this test to be the most accurate please follow the below guidelines prior to your appointment:

  1. Do not exercise or use a sauna within 8 hours of your scheduled appointment

  2. Refrain from alcohol intake for 12 hours prior to the test

  3. Make sure you are well hydrated

 

You will be asked to fill out a small questionnaire making sure these steps were followed. The Doctor will go over this test during your chiropractic exam.

 

The Chiropractic Exam

A thorough chiropractic exam will be performed which includes taking your vitals, range of motion testing, nerve testing, muscle strength, and palpatory tenderness.  You will also go over your health history with the doctor and he will take x-rays if he feels it is necessary.  If you have had any MRI's, X-Rays or other imaging done in the past we can use these as diagnostic tools as well.  After all testing is finished you will receive a chiropractic adjustment and the doctor will go over a treatment plan specific to your needs. 

 This first visit will last about 80 minutes.
