Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you and request that you complete our online patient forms, which will provide us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, Dr. Mark Kimble will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. During this initial visit, Dr. Kimble will learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Mark Kimble will perform a complete chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility, along with standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. However, everything performed in our office will be under your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan and alert us of possible spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once examined, Dr. Mark Kimble will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history and goals and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Kimble will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Kimble will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
After this initial appointment, you can experience your first treatment, which includes spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, meaning you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Before leaving, the doctor may suggest an outside office wellness program, such as ice or heat application, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at-home exercises or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique and, therefore, requires a customized wellness plan. Our wellness program is designed for good spinal alignment, acquiring a healthy diet, exercising, and maintaining a positive mental state.
