What to Expect
- Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled new patient evaluation.
- Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in (workout clothes) and allows our clinician to see your area of chief complaint.
- Expect to spend approximately one hour in the clinic on the day of your first evaluation. This will allow our doctors to review your history, perform a thorough examination, formulate a differential diagnosis, and answer any questions you may have. Following your exam, we will schedule your report of findings and first treatment, often on the following day.
- On your second visit to the clinic, please allow 30-45 minutes for your report of findings. Your doctor will review your case, render your diagnosis, explain your treatment plan, and talk about the benefits, risks, and alternatives to your treatments. You will then be escorted to a treatment room for your first treatment.
Follow up visits are typically 10-20 minutes in the office: we will perform planned re-evaluations, provide you with home exercises and activity modifications, as well as other therapies that my warrant more time.
Active care aims to treat acute or chronic conditions that cause pain, discomfort, lack of range of motion, numbness, tingling, and weakness. Active care includes an evaluation (with planned re-evaluations), chiropractic care, manual therapy, functional rehabilitation, and other supportive modalities to correct the underlying reason you are experiencing pain in the first place.
Goals of Active Care:
- Pain relief - reduce symptoms
- Prevention - maintain reduction of symptoms
- Performance - return our patients to pre-condition function and beyond

Due to the daily stressors of life, work, hobbies, etc, inevitably we all gravitate to our poor posture and movement tendencies.
The insurance industry considers maintenance care to be non-medically necessary and typically is not a covered service. The determination of medical necessity includes but is not limited to:
- you have pain, but no longer make improvements or sustain therapeutic benefit between your treatments as demonstrated by clinical guidelines
- you have no pain or limiting functional problems to move
- you want to prevent relapses of past conditions
- you want to receive care and information regarding how to actively stay healthy
We believe maintenance care is vital to the preservation of movement throughout life. Since most insurance companies do not pay for maintenance or “non-medically necessary” services, our clinic has
