Your Personal Consultation
After reviewing your welcome packet, you will enjoy a face to face with Dr. Brannan to discuss any health-related concerns or problems you may have as well as potential treatment options. We will also discuss any previous adjustments and/or treatments you may have had.
The goal of this consultation is two-fold. First, we would like to get to know you, and understand what you expect from your treatments. Second, we want to determine if chiropractic care is the right solution to meet your expectations.
Your First Examination
Following your consultation, our doctor will perform a complete chiropractic evaluation. This examination will test a number of things including:
- Your Reflexes
- A General Physical Examination
- Your Ability to Turn and Bend
- Your Posture
- An Orthopedic Check
It is possible that your condition will require x-rays for a more definitive assessment of your condition. X-rays help us rule out more serious problems that may not be treatable with chiropractic care and assist us in developing the most effective treatment for your specific needs. After seeing their x-rays, most of our patients can immediately identify their misalignment and/or areas of spinal degradation - even if they have never seen an x-ray before!
Before we get to the results - relax, no one fails this test.
With all the examinations complete, we have a clear picture of your condition. our doctor will provide you with a report of the findings to answer the three most popular questions in chiropractic care:
1. Can you help me?
2. What do you recommend I do to get better?
3. How much is it going to cost?
With your results explained in detail, the doctor will now discuss treatment recommendations with you. Based on your results, the doctor will have prepared a list of suggested treatments as part of your Whole Body Wellness Plan. If the results show a need for care beyond what Inline Chiropractic can provide, we will discuss that with you. We want you to enjoy a healthy life and we are ready to help you towards that goal whether or not it is our services that get you there.
Most new patients receive their first treatment immediately following their consultation and evaluation. This can include spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapies, and/or physical therapies. The interactive design of our therapy sessions encourage patients to discuss any questions or concerns they may have regarding the therapy. We want you to be comfortable and are ready to modify or change the style of adjustment to meet your needs and comfort level.
