Our office is very thorough and will need to get a detailed history in order to start your treatments safely. We request that you complete our patient form before coming in to make sure you have your full appointment time for follow up. If you do not have access to a printer and want to fill out at the office, please come in early and we will be more than happy to give it to you when you arrive. Initial paperwork stating your health history and information about who you are and what you would like to discuss when coming into our office help us get you the care you need.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Amie Gregory to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Amie Gregory to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Amie Gregory 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.
Do we do X-Ray?
We use Thermograph, Electromyograph and heart rate variability to find out what is going on inside your body without putting your body through invasive measures. We do not take x-rays at our office but we may send you outside our facility to get them if we feel it is necessary.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Amie Gregory will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, nervous system and full body, Dr. Amie Gregory will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Amie Gregory will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your specific needs.
At the end of every session there is treatment the same day. This may include spinal adjustments, soft tissue work, cold laser, stretches or exercises. It all depends on what you need on a particular day. 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. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: certain activities or positions to avoid, at home exercises and/or stretches or other life style suggestions. 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.
