Your first visit is a consultation with the chiropractor where you will share some information about yourself. Then the doctor will ask you some specific questions and be able to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If we can help you, the doctor will let you know. If we cannot help you, you will be referred to a doctor that will be able to help you the most. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that a better understanding of how chiropractic can help you. If necessary, the doctor may take X-rays or refer you for additional testing procedures.
X-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. The need for X-ray is considered on a case by case basis. Our equipment is state of the art for imaging. X-ray is like a picture of your spine and can act as a road map to what type of treatment may be best for you. X-rays will not be done if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. However, we are still able to treat and help patients who are currently pregnant with other types of testing.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment. An educated patient is our best patient! We will never just tell you what you need but rather explain to you in detail what the problem is and show you how we can help.
Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our special gentle yet effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.
Our office accepts most insurances. We also accept auto accident liens and workers compensation cases. To find out if your insurance covers chiropractic care, you can call our office directly or schedule your free consultation by calling 954-431-2366. The consultation is completely free.
For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, flexible payment programs can also be arranged.
