Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a conversation with Dr. Derek J. Nelson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Nelson will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Derek J. Nelson will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, Dr. Nelson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Nelson will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and/or exercises. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
