Upon entering our office, our chiropractic assistant, Courtney, will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center, or available in the office. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Sheri Carpenter to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Sheri Carpenter to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Sheri Carpenter will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Sheri Carpenter will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Sheri Carpenter will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Sheri Carpenter will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this consultation, you will have your first treatment.
The patient will lay face down on the drop table the Chiropractor will palpate and analyze the biomechanics of the spine. The Chiropractor may use interferential stimulation and or thermal therapy to relax the paraspinal muscles prior to the adjustment.
Once your treatment is over, it is common to feel warmth or energy traveling through your body as your nerve function is restored. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may require more than one treatment for optimal results.
