Patient Forms

Before you meet with our chiropractic team, we’ll need to get a good idea of your health history, including any previous treatments, specific details about your reason for visiting and any questions that you would like your chiropractor to answer during your visit. Our friendly and welcoming staff will make sure that you are comfortable upon entering our offices and provide you with all the materials needed to complete your new patient forms.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, our doctors will discuss your health-related issues, any concerns you have and potential treatment options. Your initial consultation is designed for you and your chiropractor to learn more about each other and for your doctor to get more information on your condition and expectations. From there, we can determine how to best meet your chiropractic needs.


After your consultation, we will perform a complete chiropractic examination to test your reflexes, flexibility and determine your pain levels. During this time, we will conduct several other neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical tests. Patients are encouraged to ask questions during this time.


Depending on the specific conditions you are seeking treatment for, we may need to take X-rays to help us determine the most effective treatment plan to fit your needs. X-rays are also a great tool for catching serious spinal conditions early on and can help our team to better identify spinal misalignment or degeneration.

All of the treatment options available at our office are interactive, so we encourage our patients to express any concerns and ask questions at any time during their adjustment.
