At your first visit to our office, we will request that you complete our new patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. For your convenience, these forms are available on this website in the New Patient Center where you can download them, print them, fill them out at home and bring them with you to your appointment.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Mike Spearman to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Spearman to learn more about you, your condition, and to help you and determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
Examination and Treatment
After your consultation, Dr. Spearman you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue release. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests can be performed as well.Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment at any time.
Depending on your specific condition, we may suggest that you have X-rays taken. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their mis-alignments and degeneration themselves. We will refer you for x-rays, if needed. If you already have them, please bring them to your first appointment.
