First Visit
 

Your First Visit

Upon entering our office, our Front Desk Chiropractic Assistant will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our New Patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. You will be assigned your private PIN (Personal Identification Number) to allow you to sign into our practice.

You will meet the doctor and have a comprehensive consultation and chiropractic examination. Your initial visit is designed for Dr. Langley to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals. Dr. Langley will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your range of motion, flexibility, posture, and check your spine for subluxations. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well according to need.


Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Langley may initiate chiropractic care immediately, or may choose to wait for x-ray studies.

Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for X-rays. Our X-rays are taken by Life University. We will contact the facility and make the referral and request the desired x-rays on your behalf. This will help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions.

On your next visit, Dr. Langley will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. A timeframe for your care
  3. What will my care cost?
  4. The type of care needed/specialized techniques
  5. Decide how you want to proceed

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examination findings, Dr. Langley will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Langley will provide the best recommendations for corrective care and wellness programs for your needs. She may also recommend specific exercises to facilitate your spinal correction and strengthen your spine.

Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a program of home care. 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.

You will also be scheduled for your “Doctor’s Report”. This mandatory appointment may be your most important appointment. It is designed to give you all of the information needed to facilitate your healing and answer all of your questions regarding your health and your condition. It is conducted after patient hours for your convenience and for our focused attention. You are encouraged to bring along someone who will be supporting you in your care and recommendations.
