Your First Visit

Patient Forms
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 Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.

Consultation
Next, you will have a consultation with the doctor 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.

Examination
After your consultation, the doctor 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.

X-Ray Studies
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings
Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, the doctor 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 and X-rays, the doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   The doctor will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.   There are three general phases of chiropractic care:

Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

During your visits to Skyline Wellness Center, our physicians will create a custom plan for you that will include three different components:  


Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. The doctors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.


Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the exercise area of the clinic, or in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
