Patients are greeted with a warm, fun, yet professional staff. If you were looking for a “cold & sterile” type of office, this place is not for you. But if you are looking for a warm & friendly environment, that features incredible energy, from an optimistic staff, then you will feel right at home. The colors, design and technology match what a contemporary healing facility should be. You will feel better and cared for the moment you walk through the door.
Following a welcoming greeting, you will be given some brief paper work to fill out to better assist the Doctor with your condition. At this time, we will also take a copy of your insurance card or license.
The Doctor will have a consultation with you to discuss with you the reason you came in to the office. For most people this includes some kind of ache or pain that is preventing you from doing what you love to do most. We want to find out what that is for you!
If Dr. Glenn feels chiropractic care can help, then a chiropractic examination will be performed to determine your status. This usually include posture analysis, range of motion, orthopedic & neurological tests. We also have on site, some very amazing state of the art diagnostic equipment that will allow us to “pinpoint” the very source of your problems. If deemed necessary, x-rays pictures of your spine will be prescribed. Because we want to study the results of our findings, we will take our time with your course of treatment on your first visit. We will save the more “active” part of your care until all the pieces of the puzzle are put together from the “comprehensive” exam and x-rays. It is on that 2nd visit that we will be giving you our best recommendations. However, it is very important that you receive some level of care to start the healing process. Our goal is for you to feel a little bit better then when you walked in and then ADD upon that in future visits. Healing takes time!
Upon leaving, you will schedule your follow up appointment.
The first visit almost never takes more then one to one and a half hours.
Patient appreciate that we explain everything in advance!
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 one of our licensed physicians to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, one of our licensed physicians 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.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. 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.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, one of our licensed physicians 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?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, we will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our team will provide 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, physical 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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also 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, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
