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. Please also bring a form of ID (ex. driver's license) and your insurance cards.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Kevin Anderson & Dr. Stephanie Anderson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Kevin Anderson & Dr. Stephanie Anderson to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Kevin Anderson & Dr. Stephanie Anderson will perform a complete physcial examination which may include standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. If needed, the Doctor may consult Imaging or lab tests such as x-ray to confirm a diagnosis.
Depending on your specific condition and examination results, we may send you to have X-rays or MRI taken. We do not take X-rays at our facility, as these are usually not necessary to receive chiropractic care due to our comprehensive examinations. If you already have x-rays or MRI/CT of the area of complaint, we encourage you to bring those with you on your first visit. This is a decision that the chiropractor will discuss with you, and the reasoning for the testing.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, therapeutic exercise, and/or manual therapy (massage). Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Home Care Routine
Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a home care routine 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 team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized plan.
