Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you . She will have you enter your medical history, your family medical history, your surgical history and your complaints (where your pain is) into our electronic medical records. This information provides us with what we need to know you better and get the information on your condition that we need.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Christine Ingbretson, Dr. Jennifer Engesether, Dr. Erika Yancey, Dr. Dale Wohlrabe, or Dr. Tamara Caulter to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Christine, Dr. Jen, Dr. Erika, Dr. Dale, or Dr. Tamie 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.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you to have X-rays or an MRI. These will help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us to any serious spinal conditions.
At the conclusion of the initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment, if the doctor decides that is appropriate. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment at our office. 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, at home exercises and/or stretches, or supplements. 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.
If you have been referred for X-rays or an MRI, a Review of Findings appointment will be scheduled before you leave. At this appointment the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
Your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.
