Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our practice.  If you haven't already done so, we will request that you complete our patient forms. If you would like to complete our forms before your first appointment, you will find them on our website in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history main reasons for consulting our office.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Andrew Williamson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Andrew Williamson to learn more about you, your concerns and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Andrew Williamson will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. A computerized scan of your nervous system including thermography and electromyography, will also take place during the exam. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective care 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. Andrew Williamson will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my care cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays (if necessary), Dr. Andrew Williamson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.   Dr. Andrew Williamson  will provide the best care and wellness program for your needs.


Care

At the conclusion of the Report of Findings appointment, you can choose to  experience your first chiropractic alignment. 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 care at any time.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of the 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, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  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 excellent spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
