Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice.
You’ll be asked to complete our patient registration form located on the Online Forms page.
This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation to discuss your health-related issues, concerns, andpotential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Cole to learn more about you, your condition, and to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, you will receive a complete chiropractic examination
testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic,
postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. No treatment is performed
during the examination, as a diagnosis must be established first.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well.
X-rays help to develop the most effective treatment plan for you,
and reveal any serious spinal conditions. Xrays show us the severity
of misalignments and spinal decay, and also identify other issues that
may modify or preclude treatment.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed,
we will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
Will Dr. Cole accept me for treatment?
How can Dr. Cole 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. Cole will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires additional
care with other providers. Dr Cole’s goal is to provide the best treatment plan
and wellness program for your particular needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment.
This may include spinal adjustments, therapies, exericses, and/or soft tissue massage.
Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate
in your daily routine. This may include ice or heat application instructions,
certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises.
Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan.
The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment,
including a healthy diet, exercise, and maintaining a positive attitude.
