Carson City Chiropractor What to Expect

Brief Paperwork

In order to provide the highest quality care and insure that we have all of the information that your insurance company may require, your first visit will include completing health questionnaires and history forms. The “paperfun” also provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. For each of your following visits, you will complete a quick and simple “computer kiosk” questionnaire to provide the doctor with your current health needs. If you are not familiar with touch screen computers, our staff will assist you with everything you need to fill out.

Once the “paperfun” has been completed, either by hand or on the computer, you will have a complimentary consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential and /or available 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. This examination process may also include some high tech studies called EMG tests or Surface Electronic Myleogragh studies. Much like how an EKG measures the condition of your heart muscle, this will measure the activity in your muscles at injured areas and give the doctor and staff a clearer picture of how encompassing your problems are

Same Day Treatment

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

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 written report of findings. If you are married, your spouse or partner is always welcome to attend and ask questions. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
