Upon entering our chiropractic office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. 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. Brett or Anne Marie Coryell, to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the Drs. to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the Dr. will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays alert us of any serious spinal conditions and help us develop effective treatment plans. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and distortions themselves.
Report of Findings – Return Visit
Dr. Coryell will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer your questions:
- How can you help me?
- How long will it take?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and exam information. The Dr. will also discuss recommendations and outside referrals if necessary. A personalized treatment protocol will be provided for your individual needs.
At the conclusion of your report of findings appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express preferences about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, your chiropractor may suggest home care to incorporate outside of the office. 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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you to create healthy lifestyle habits to help with weight loss, or address nutritional counseling. Every person is unique, and deserves a customized wellness plan.
