    Brief Paperwork

    Upon entering the office of Chiropractor in Charlotte, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. (Some insurance plans have their own paperwork which they require to be submitted; please bring your insurance card to your first visit.)

    Consultation

    Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

    History and Examination

    In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

    X-ray Studies

    Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

    Same Day Treatment
    Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

    Referrals
    If yours is not a problem that we believe will respond to Chiropractic Care, we will refer you to the specialist we believe will be the most help for your problems.

    Home Instructions

    Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instruction, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

    Schedule Your Next Appointment

    You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
