Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. 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 Dr. Lindy Johnson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Lindy Johnson to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Lindy Johnson will perform a complete chiropractic examination. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer out for X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Lindy Johnson will give you a 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 and X-rays (if needed), Dr. Lindy Johnson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Lindy Johnson will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue modalities. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Throughout your treatment, 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.
