Upon entering our 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 Sanders to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Sanders to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your health goals.
After your consultation, Sanders will perform a complete chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
After a physical examination, we will take some digital images of your spine. These images help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us to any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their digital X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Sanders will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you may have, such as what treatment options are best for you, how often you will need to come in and what treatment will cost.
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and digital X-rays, Sanders will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Sanders will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
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. If you desire, our wellness team will also work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. 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 and exercise program, and maintain a positive mental state.
