Your First Visit

Initial Paperwork

Upon entering the office, you will be greeted by our lovely staff.  Then, we have some paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.  There you will also provide the staff member with a photo ID and your insurance card if applicable.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related concerns. In order to determine what the cause problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition.

Examination

Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-Ray Studies

X-rays may be required to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in understanding the extent of your condition.  This will help in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit.  Dr. Rachel will thoroughly go over your findings to determine the best treatment plan for each patient.

Report of Findings

At the next visit, the patient will be given a report of findings.  This will include what is wrong and what the treatment plan will be.  The patient will have plenty of time to ask questions.

Treatment

After consenting to the treatment plan, the patient may receive an adjustment, soft tissue massage, and/or physiotherapy depending on the condition and treatment plan.

Home Instructions

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