Your Consultation

This is when we want to hear all about you.

You’ll meet Dr. Myers and he’ll ask appropriate questions to better understand your perspective on the problem.

Tell us about your symptoms and what it was that caused you to seek chiropractic care.

Your Chiropractic Examination

Your explanation of symptoms is the subjective view on your condition. To develop a more objective understanding of what’s going on with your body, Dr. Myers will conduct an examination.

The examination includes some tests to determine your range of motion, posture, and neurological functioning.

X-rays are the final part of the examination. They enable Dr. Myers to see what’s going on internally.

Scheduling Your Next Appointment

Dr. Myers does not adjust on the first visit.

“I want to be sure I have all of the information I need first.”

He develops your X-rays himself, but not until the end of the day. By waiting until your second appointment to begin your care, Dr. Myers has time to look at the information from your consultation, examination and X-rays to determine the best course of action.

“We make sure we know everything we could possibly know about you and your condition in order to come up with the best plan to help you in the least amount of time.”

Your Second Visit

Your second visit is scheduled as soon after the first as possible. It usually lasts 60 to 90 minutes and involves the following:

  • Dr. Myers will go over your X-rays and examination findings to explain to you what he found.
  • Dr. Myers will make recommendations for your care. Based on the information he gathered. He’ll tell you whether or not he thinks he can help with your condition. If he can’t, he’ll refer you to someone else; if he can, he’ll recommend a treatment plan.
  • After he presents his findings and recommendations to you, Dr. Myers will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your treatment, including the financial aspects.
  • You’ll get your first adjustment.
  • Reassessment

End of Care Plan

At the end of your care plan, Dr. Myers will reexamine you. You get to see exactly how far you’ve come since your initial visit in regards to pain levels, range of motion, etc.

At that point you can choose to continue with chiropractic maintenance care or long-term wellness care.
