First Visit

Brief Paperworkhandshake

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Or, if you prefer, you may click here to access our online forms and have the paperwork completed prior to arrival.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options.

History & Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor and staff will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-Ray and Other Studiesstethoscope xray

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Our new equipment allows us to take x-rays with minimal exposure to radiation. Laboratory analysis of blood or urine are also available through a courier from Sanford Clinical Laboratories.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physiotherapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. You may explore many of our treatment options here.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-3 days and are provided with a complete report of findings. Treatment options and plans for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
