Your First Visit
When you first walk into our office, our receptionist will warmly greet you and ask that you complete our patient form located in the Patient Forms section of this website. Furthermore, this form provides us with a history of your health and any other information on your current condition.
In addition, after filling out the patient forms, you will have a consultation with Dr. Travis Elliott. During this consultation, you and Dr. Travis Elliott will discuss your health, symptoms, concerns, and potential options for treatment. In fact, the purpose of the consultation is for Dr. Travis Elliott to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations in order to determine how chiropractic care can assist in helping you meet those goals.
In like manner, a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility will be performed after your consultation. Similarly, standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will also be performed. All testing will only be done at the patient's consent
Not only ... but also, specific conditions may require X-rays. X-Rays can assist in the development of the most beneficial treatment plan for your condition. In some cases, the X-rays alone can identify misalignments and degeneration that may be occurring. Please alert us first if you have any serious spinal conditions.
Report of Findings
Once all patient information has been collected and examinations finished, you will be provided with a detailed report of all findings. In addition, any questions you have about how we can help you, how often you should visit, and the expected cost of your treatment, will be answered. As a matter of fact, you will be notified if your condition requires treatment from any other providers and provided with the best treatment and wellness program we have to offer for your individual needs.
At this point of your initial visit, you will be given the option of receiving your first chiropractic treatment. Spinal adjustments, soft tissue massage, and/or physical therapy may be included as part of this treatment session. Feel free to express any concerns you may have about the different styles of treatment at any time. Chiropractic treatment should be an interactive experience.
Before you leave, you will be asked if you would like to incorporate a wellness plan to assist you outside of your treatment. Ice and Heat application may be recommended if you have been experiencing pain prior to your first visit. Certain stretches may be recommended and certain activities or positions to avoid will be identified. If you would like, we can also assist you with creating healthy habits and routines in your lifestyle to assist you with maintaining good spinal alignment, exercise, and diet, to help you maintain a positive mental state. Every person is unique, requiring a custom wellness plan specifically for you.
