Patient Forms and Office Tour

Upon entering our office, our team will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our  patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. You will then be taken on a brief tour of our facility to help you understand our mission and see our practice in action.


Preliminary Consultation

Next, you will have a pre-consultation with your doctor to discuss your concerns. Will then perform a series of tests to determine if you are a candidate for our services. This initial visit is designed  to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine if we can help you. This inital evaluation is done at our expense. If it is determined that you may be a candidate for our services, we will discuss any fees necessary to move forward.


Examination

If you agree to move forward, will perform a complete chiropractic, orthopedic and neurologic examination to determine the source of your problem. Any other necessary infomation required to completely understand your condition will also be taken at this time.

 


 

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, determine levels of spinal decay 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

Shortly after your initial visit, our team will schedule a time for you to go over the details and recommendations for your care. Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed and results reviewed, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

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

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examination finding and X-rays, your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Drs. Brian & Kristina Shuffler will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Agreement to Care

 At the conclusion of your report of findings, if we have decided to accept you as a new patient, we will begin your care. This may include spinal adjustments, passive and active physical therapy, and specific wellness workshops chosen by the doctor specifically for you.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Additional Recommendations

The doctor will suggest recommendations 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.  This is an ongoing process throughout your care.  Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a  customized wellness plan.  The purpose  of our recommendations are for   you  to achieve optimal movement, have a  healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
