- We strive to provide complete care for our patients. Learn more about all the services we provide.
Upon entering Interurban Chiropractic, our receptionist, Bailey, will warmly welcome you into our office. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our team to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can help meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
At our office, each new patient is required to get X-Rays. X-Rays are necessary for the doctors to see the curvature of the spine, pre-existing conditions and to determine the best plan of action for care. The only time X-Rays are not taken is if the individual is pregnant when becoming a new patient.
Report of Findings
For our office, this takes place the SECOND visit. The doctor reviews the results of the patient’s initial exam, x-rays, and insurance benefits. A Corrective Care Plan (AKA Plan of Action) is then established and tailored to address the patient's specific needs.
The first adjustment does not take place until after the Report of Findings on the Second Visit. This is to ensure the patient is well aware of their problem areas, insurance coverage, etc. The doctor will then walk the patient through the adjustment process step by step.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
