The chiropractic process
Download and complete this health care questionnaire or this pediatric health care questionnaire that will allow us to uncover previous and current health challenges as well as get an overview of your lifestyle.
You will watch a brief and powerful video that will explain in more detail what the doctor will be looking for in your health evaluation and assessment.
Our Chiropractic health assistant will review your health questionnaire with you and gather any additional information we need to address your current health concerns.
You'll receive a state of the art Neuro-Spinal Scan to detect any patterns of tension being held in your nervous system. It will evaluate your nervous system in 5 dimensions: algometry (your ability to sense and feel pain), ranges of motion (the flexibility of your spine), muscle electromyography (the balance and symmetry of your spinal muscles), thermography (the function of your organs, glands and blood vessels) and lastly heart rate variability (how well you are integrating and coping with the demands of your environment). This technology is certified by the Space Foundation and has been used on the NASA 2 shuttle mission to evaluate the impact of space on astronauts' nervous systems.
The doctor will do a full chiropractic evaluation on you that will include a posture assessment to determine any postural imbalances that can create stress on your body. The doctor will also do a palpation of your spine to uncover areas of subluxations — areas of abnormal tension of the spine that may cause interference in your nervous system and cause a lower state of health.
You will receive your first adjustment.
After your first adjustment you will be asked to pay particular attention to your body signals over the next 24-48 hours. The input that the doctor provides your nervous system is very powerful and as a result you may continue to feel things in your body shifting. This may present as changes in energy levels (either very energized or very tired), increased dreaming at night, new or old emotions arising, feelings of a sense of ease or calm, or even achiness into new joints and muscles as your body begins to structurally realign itself.
Following the first visit
It is very important to us that you understand the findings of your exam. On your second visit you will receive a truly enlightening group doctor's report that will explain the meaning of our findings and the impact they have on your health and wellness.
Your report is very comprehensive and complete, however if you have any further questions, they will be answered at this time. It will astound you how much you learn about yourself and knowledge is power. You will be educated on the short and long term effects of subluxation and offered recommendations for care.
Should you choose, you will begin your journey in chiropractic, in healing, in becoming connected to the larger you and express the beauty and vitality that life has to offer you.
