Getting Started

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

For the first visit, please budget approximately 60 minutes for your appointment time.  Education is very important to us, we believe that it is foundational for you to understand why we do what we do while we serve you in this office. You can expect:

 

Chiropractic Education:

The visit will continue with an Educational video including:

  •     History of Chiropractic

  •     Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Specific, Scientific Chiropractic Assessment:

The next step is having your assessment completed. This assessment will include:

  •     Neurological and Postural Evaluation

  •     Spinal Health Assessment

  •     Range of Motion

 

Conclusion and Final Steps to the First Visit:

At the end of your visit, we will:

  •     Review our privacy policies

  •     Review and complete consent forms 

  •     Government issued ID is required to match payment method.  

Methods of payment: Any major Credit/Debit card or Cash.

AFTER THE FIRST VISIT

The chiropractor may request Chiropractic Postural Spinal X-rays. These help provide information such as:

  •     Position of spinal bones in relation to where the nerves sit

  •     Health of the spine


There are a number of reasons why X-rays won’t be requested. These are:

  •     Not necessary to complete treatment plan or diagnosis

  •     Pregnancy

  •     Age

  •     Recent usable spinal x-rays (in the last 2 years)

  •     Specific medical conditions


Should you require x-rays, we will refer you off sight to a Medical Imaging Clinic to get these done. 

*If you have already had x-rays done, or any other diagnostic tests (MRI, CT Scan, etc.), please bring the report or a digital copy on your first visit.  

SECOND VISIT

Your second visit is your First Adjustment, unlike most offices we do not adjust on the first visit. At Graceful Spinal Care we will never guess with your health, so in order to give you the best care possible, Dr. Michael goes over all your exams and X-rays (as needed) to create a unique care plan for your unique case.​

Doctors Report

Your Doctor’s Report Visit. This in person presentation is where our chiropractor will review:

  •     Chiropractic education from previous visits

  •     The results from your chiropractic assessment

  •     The results of your chiropractic postural X-rays (as needed)

  •     Discuss and Create your specific unique care plan, and give you specific instructions on how you can obtain the best possible results

At the end of the report, the Doctor will meet with each person individually to address any questions you may have.
