WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
At Vibrant Life Chiropractic, our new patient examination practices are geared towards educating our patients on the importance of detecting and correcting vertebral subluxations and the importance of regulating the nervous system.
After being greeted by one of our staff, you will be asked to complete a health history form for yourself or your child, if you haven’t already filled it out online. Our exam specialist will then take you on a tour of the clinic and then your personal examination will begin. Please allow up to one hour for this visit.
The exam may include:
Initial Consultation & Health History
Neuro-Spinal Assessment & Palpation
Digital Spinal X-Rays
The importance of each of these tests will be explained to you at your follow-up visit. It's important to understand that this initial examination helps us to scientifically understand any of the subluxation processes occurring in your spine. It gives us a baseline for any of your future progress exams so we can accurately measure your progress and how your spine corrects itself, as well as your nervous system's function. With this information, we can accurately determine the type of adjustments and care your spine will need, as well as the frequency.
Once the doctor has had a chance to sit down and study your test results, he will have you back for your Report of Findings. This is where you will receive a detailed description of your current health situation. If after going over the findings you decide that you would like to begin care, you will receive your first adjustment on this visit.
This visit includes your specific findings. You will see your test results, including x-rays, and CLA scanner results. You will understand these results based on what you learned in the first half of your visit. It is at this point that the doctor will give you more details about your case, what can be done to correct it, how long it will take, and how much your treatment will cost. We answer all of your questions before starting your adjustment schedule as well.
