Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This one sheet of paper (front and back) allows us to get to know you and it allows you time to think, in more detail, about your heal and the goals of your reasoning behind seeking help.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Seth Anderson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential options for care. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Seth Anderson to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Seth Anderson will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other specialized neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective care plan for you, and help alert us to just how serious your situation is. 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 (often on day 2)
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Seth Anderson will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- Can you help me?
- How much and with what?
- What is still fixable and what is only patchable?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my care cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Anderson will discuss recommendations and provide the best care for your needs. Receiving care is always your personal choice, because not all people want the same thing. If you are not interested in care or if Dr. Anderson does not feel he can help you, you will be referred to another specialist in the area.
Somewhere during your first visit or two, you can choose to experience your first adjustment. This will consist on specific, scientific, chiropractic adjustments. Questions and even concerns are very common, especially about this portion of your visit, please ask them. We may have heard the same questions a hundred times before, and that is okay, there are no stupid questions.
Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized plan to have a full life and express themselves wholly. The purpose living a wellness lifestyle is for you to achieve your potential. Here we will focus on your master system, the nerve system, and out there you can help by focusing on the food you eat, the movements and exercise you do, how you rest, and for how long and your outlook on life.
