What to Expect on Your First Visit
Upon entering the office, you will be asked to fill out brief paperwork. This paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.
Once the paperwork is completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Banker to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing
your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so he may have a better understanding of how he will be able to help you. If necessary, the doctor may refer you for x-rays or additional testing procedures.
Same Day Treatment
If we have accepted your case for care, we will begin your first treatment during this same visit. This treatment may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy modalities, and/or soft tissue therapies to begin the healing process as quickly as possible.
