The First Visit

As a new patient, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive health history form. This form is designed to give Dr. Meyer all of the necessary information about past health problems, injuries, diet, exercise, occupation and other information needed to make informed and accurate decisions in your case. You’ll be asked what type of care you’re looking for (e.g., relief or wellness) and what your goals are.

Dr. Meyer will then examine you which may include the following:

  • Range of motion studies
  • Careful palpation (examination by touch) of your spinal column
  • Important neurological, orthopedic and muscle testing
  • A computer spinal analysis
  • Digital x-rays if indicated

After all the information is gathered, and testing procedures completed, Dr. Meyer will take time to analyze your x-rays, study the clinical findings and develop a plan of care designed to effectively address the cause of your presenting health concerns. You’ll also receive your first chiropractic adjustment. Please allow about 1 hour for this initial appointment.

The Second Visit-Report of Findings

Dr. Meyer will show you your x-rays and explain your other test results. He’ll let you know if yours is a chiropractic case, where you’re misaligned or subluxated, provide a diagnosis and a chiropractic care plan. He’ll tell you what he anticipates it will take to resolve your issue and how long it will take. You’ll be given your findings to take home and review. Dr. Meyer will adjust you, and that’s it. This appointment takes about 30 minutes.

Regular Visits

These shorter visits involve a chiropractic analysis with leg, range of motion and a few orthopedic checks with palpation. Dr. Meyer will let you know how you’re progressing at each visit. Lastly, you will get adjusted.
