Upon entering our office, we will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. It is highly suggested, but not required, that you fill out the forms prior to your appointment. You can find these forms located in the New Patients tab.
You will have a consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Owens to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
Dr. Owens will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as needed.
After the examination, Dr. Owens will start treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, Dr. Owens will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. This may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
