Your First Visit

What should I expect on the initial visit?

Patient History
Drs. Linda and Jim will discuss with you the nature and extent of your condition to determine if chiropractic care is an appropriate treatment for the condition.  If chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition, we readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider.

Physical Examination
Orthopedic, neurological and spinal examinations, as well as postural analysis are performed to  determine general health status and specific problems.

X-rays
May be utilized to further assess the health condition if necessary.

Diagnosis
Based on the history, examination and X-rays/MRI/lab findings.

Treatment Plan
A personal treatment will be developed for you.  Treatment methods, along with spinal manipulation, may include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, acupuncture, massage therapy or controlled exercises.  It may also include lifestyle counseling, such as providing supports, custom foot orthotics or exercises aimed at building flexibility, strength and overall well-being.
