First Visit

Timing

The doctor generally takes about an hour on your initial visit, and follow up visits last around 30 minutes.

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. For your convenience, these forms can be found HERE to be filled out before your visit.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. A number of tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. We do not take x-rays in our office, but work closely with Great Basin Imaging to provide you with state-of-the-art diagnostic images.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit as needed.
