First Visit

Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some paperwork for you to fill out. These forms provide us with general information about yourself and your condition.

History and Examination

Dr. Andrews will ask you a number of questions about your present condition and your health history. She will then perform a physical examination to determine the cause and extent of your injury/condition.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to order x-rays to rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, Dr. Andrews will provide you with a review of her findings. This will provide an explanation of chiropractic, a diagnosis, and a treatment plan personalized to your needs. Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, and 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 1-2 days.
