The first visit at our clinic is meant to gather as much information about your health history as we can in order to figure out the best way to serve you. Please allow at least 45 minutes for your first visit with us.
Your initial visit begins with you filling out our new patient paperwork. Please have all paperwork filled out before arriving at your scheduled appointment time. (Note: If you are unable to fill out paperwork beforehand, please arrive 20 minutes early to allow yourself time to fully fill out the forms. If you arrive to your appointment with unfinished paperwork, you will be rescheduled.) This paperwork is filled with necessary information about you, your health history and your current condition.
Next you will join our patient educator to go over some of the key information you filled out in the forms. In order to get a full clinical picture, she will ask you different questions regarding your health history, how your current condition is affecting your daily life, dietary habits and any personal health goals you may have for yourself. Following the consultation, the analysis will begin.
The doctor will begin the analysis by making contact with a specific reflex area with one hand and touching your extended arm with the other hand. If the reflex being tested is under stress, the body will reduce power to the extended arm and it will go weak and drop. A weakness in the arm indicates stress to that specific organ, gland, joint or muscle being tested. The doctor will then address those weaknesses with nutritional supplements.
After your initial nutritional evaluation, your restorative nutritional care will begin. These are 10 – 15 minute appointments where your program will be checked and you can ask your chiropractor questions about your care.
