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, information on your condition, and consent to treat you.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Josh Bell or Dr. Chris Foust to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial part of your visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
Examination & Treatment
After your consultation, Dr. Josh Bell or Dr. Chris Foust will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. Treatment will be manual spinal adjustment. Treatment is interactive, so you can express any concerns you may have at anytime.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you out to have X-rays taken. However, we do not take X-rays in our office. In some cases, X-rays can identify misalignments and degeneration.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Josh Bell or Dr. Chris Foust will give you a verbal report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, Dr. Josh Bell or Dr. Chris Foust will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our chiropractors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program designed specifically for you 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. Our goal is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
