Welcome to Community Chiropractic
We want to help make this process as easy and wonderful as it can be. If you are coming to the office for the first time, your first visit will last approximately half an hour. We will review your history, perform an evaluation, and if necessary, refer you for x-rays. We will discuss with you how we can help you and explain every process.
Please bring any recent x-rays, MRIs, or CAT Scans that are related to any spine related problems you may be suffering from. Dr. Steve will discuss any other concerns you may have that are not contained in these forms below.
We always run on time so please arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment. This way, we can process your paperwork, payment and insurance information prior to your visit with Dr. Steve.
What to Expect.
Upon entering our office, a staff member will greet you and welcome you to the office. You will be asked complete any additional paperwork, if needed and provide your insurance information. Then, Dr. Steve will, personally, show you to the consult room.
During your consultation with the doctor, you’ll be able to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your spinal health. Some of the tests utilized are:
- Weight bearing test
- Computerized postural assessments
- Range of motion evaluation
- Motion palpation
- Flexion and lateral flexion adverse cord and connective tissue assessment
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for x-rays. These can help us develop the most effective care plan for you and alert us if there are any serious spinal conditions.
We do not automatically x-ray every patient.
Receiving Care In Our Office:
As you complete your first visit, you will receive your first spinal adjustment. People are often amazed at how gentle and effective these manipulations feel. Some adjustments use the same amount of force that you would use to squeeze a tomato. At times, they require the use of a specific tool that provides exact vectors to correct nerve blockages. The chiropractic care in our office involves highly specialized training and is custom tailored to each person.
Your Follow Up Appointment
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit, usually within a week. During this follow-up visit, the doctor will give you a detailed report on your spine and answer any additional questions you have.
We have many payment options available and accept several forms of insurance. Payment options include health savings plans, flexible spending accounts and Visa/MasterCard/Discover/AMEX. We keep our rates competitive! Whether dealing with an immediate issue, wanting support in correcting an underlying spinal concern, or using our wellness service to maximize bodily performance, we have payment options that can work for you. Our helpful team will assist you with any questions you have regarding your coverage.
We look forward to walking through this new process with you!
