What Should You Expect on Your First Visit With Us?

Examination

At our chiropractic center our examination procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the “Vertebral Subluxation”. The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our office.

Our Examination consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes “Palpation”. Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxation problems. Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxation. You will also have a posture analysis picture taken along with a testing of your range of motion.

From this we can see how subluxation may be affecting these functions of your nervous system.

 

Spinal XraysSpinal X-Rays

Spinal X-rays may be taken depending on your age, and situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations. Aside from these situations, x-rays are a common part of the examination process when looking for vertebral subluxations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time subluxations may have been involved in your spine. Commonly, most patients receive four spinal x-rays at the beginning of care.

With this important information we can make a more accurate determination of the type of adjustments your spine needs as well as the ongoing frequency of your care. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail at your Report of Findings. You will be scheduled for your Report of Findings within a few days of your initial visit. This visit is your most important visit and may take up to one hour. It is at your Report of Findings that we will give you a care plan and go over any special instructions you will need to obtain the best and fastest possible results. We have set aside specific times for these visits so as not to interfere with regular patient care hours. Our staff will schedule your Report of Findings with you after your first visit.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I’ve had a phenomenal experience here so far. The staff is friendly, fun, and knowledgeable – not to mention incredibly professional and well organized. Perhaps more importantly, Dr. Shoe is an excellent chiropractor. He has improved my range of motion considerably, reduced various pains and aches, and works with me to ensure that I’m taking care of myself outside the office.
