What to Expect on Your First Visit

 

At Reach, our focus is our patients.

We want you to know what to expect at our office.

On your initial visit, or New Patient Consultation, you will fill out a new patient form. This is available on our website prior to the visit or you can fill it out in the office on one of our tablets.

Our office will also do a complimentary insurance benefits check for you.

One-on-One Consultation.

After that information is provided, you will sit down with the doctor for a one-on-one consultation.

During this time, you will be able to discuss any health concerns you have and Dr. Ryan may also ask about any pertinent information from your health assessment section that is on our new patient form.

Next, you will move into a thorough spinal exam.

This is where the doctor will check your range of motion, muscle tone and strength, possible subluxations, disc bulges, or herniations of the discs in your spine.

If you have never been to a chiropractor and want to know more about what to expect, check out our article on: “Chiropractic Care: 101.”

If necessary, we will take digital-motion X-Rays.

For standard procedure, we use X-Rays to rule out fractures or possible tumors before adjustments.

If you are pregnant, nursing, or have another condition that puts you at high risk, we will skip this and move onto scheduling you for your Report of Findings.

Report of Findings

After Dr. Ryan has reviewed the patient history notes and the results of the spinal exam and X-Rays, he will carefully explain the chiropractic treatment plan that is needed based on your condition.

You can expect on-going education about adjustments and the improvement your body is making.
