First step on your initial visit
Your first step on your initial visit to fill out forms that provide background information about your symptoms and condition. You are asked to provide information on pre-existing medical conditions or prior injuries, and previous and current treatments provided by other health care professionals.
Then you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your condition and anything else he may need to talk with you about to gain a better understanding of how we may be able to help you.
After the consultation the doctor then usually performs a detailed examination which can take 30-40 minutes. Our doctor’s at All Natural Chiropractic take great pride in performing a thorough examination which will provide them with valuable information about your condition. The doctors will also explain the findings of your examination in a way that you will understand what they found and how they would like to treat your condition. Patients are then much more comfortable in knowing if they can be helped or not. They also feel more at ease when they understand what may be causing their symptoms and how that particular treatment is going to improve their condition and why it is necessary.
During your in-office exam, the doctor may perform specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess your range of motion, your muscle tone and strength, and neurological integrity. Other test may include having you move in a specific manner or a posture analysis.
We ask if you have had imaging (x-ray or MRI scan) to bring the disc and/or paper report to your scheduled in-office exam. Sometimes, the doctor may need an updated study. In those cases, you will be provided with a script.
The allotted time for an initial visit is 45 minutes to an hour. Because your time is valuable, new patients are usually seen within 15 minutes of their scheduled appointment time.
We do participate with some local health insurance companies. Please bring your current insurance card along with picture identification to your initial appointment.
