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, as well as other necessary office paperwork.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Art or Dr. Courtney to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Bond to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Bond will perform a chiropractic examination testing your posture and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as necessary. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we will take X-rays as necessary. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal
conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves. Please understand that, to see
is to know...not to see is to guess...And we won't guess about your spine. That is why x-rays are so important.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Bond will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- How can I help myself?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Bond will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Bond will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs consistent with chiropractic care.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first chiropractic adjustment. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of adjustment 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
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 and maintain a good spinal alignment.
