After a warm welcome, you will sign in, and if you have your paperwork with you, please present it along with your ID and insurance card. Also helpful is to bring X-ray or MRI reports/CDs, if you have them. Those reports and paperwork provides us with your health history and information about your condition. To complete the forms, go to New Patient and click on New Patient Packet.
Next, you will have a consultation with Lowe to discuss health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Lowe will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as needed. .
Depending on your specific condition, X-rays may be taken to help develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of serious spinal conditions. Lowe will closely consult with you on his findings. NOTE: If you have recent X-rays (not older than 9 months) or have an MRI study, please bring them the report(s) with you.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Lowe will discuss a report of findings and answer any questions regarding your treatment plan. In addition, he will discuss recommendations and coordination of outside resources, if needed.
At the conclusion of your 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, feel free to ask about the different styles of treatment and their impact.
Near the end of your visit, Lowe will suggest a wellness regimen to incorporate outside of treatment. This may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, or at home exercises and/or stretches.
