We require the usual paperwork which provides us with your health history and information on your condition. We've chosen to remain old school, utilizing pen and paper rather than electronic intake forms. We can email you the forms and you can print them and fill out by hand to bring with on your first visit if you'd like to save some time.
Next, you will have a consultation with Doctor Jeffrey Brunner to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Doctor Jeffrey Brunner to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Doctor Jeffrey Brunner will perform a chiropractic examination checking your spine for needed areas of treatment, this is primarily done with leg checks and palpation. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may need X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. If we determine X-rays are necessary before treatment, usually only if there's been a recent trauma or severe illness, we will recommend a walk in X-ray facility. If you have recent X-rays or reports we are happy to utilize those and won't require any additional X-rays if the existing studies provide the necessary information.
Treatment and Recommendations
We evaluate future care needs on a visit to visit basis. We are happy to answer your questions and give you a general idea of the course of care we recommend. Your progress depends on many factors, but if you follow our advice you will respond faster than if you just only show up for your visits. Our goal is to get each patient to their ideal wellness or maintenance schedule as soon as possible. If desired, you will get your first adjustment on your first visit, but if you'd rather sleep on it, you can tell us when to start.
