A cheerful welcome awaits you when you enter our office. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. S. Thompson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and treatment options. This initial visit will help Dr. S. Thompson to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations so he can determine and explain how chiropractic care may help you.
Examination and Report of Findings
After your consultation, Dr. S. Thompson will perform a chiropractic examination and then discuss his findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, Dr. S. Thompson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. You will be provided the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
