Your First Visit

A guide to what you can expect when you visit our offices for the first time. 

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. Next, you will need to fill out some brief paperwork including a basic background and health history. Note: If you are coming in with an online voucher like Groupon or AmazonLocal, please bring in your voucher code (not a printout of the e-mail). 

Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Jason Van Skyhock to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Jason Van Skyhock to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Jason Van Skyhock will perform a complete chiropractic examination looking for any spinal distortions, range of motion, vertebral subluxation complex. 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, Dr. Jason Van Skyhock will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Jason Van Skyhock will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Jason Van Skyhock will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you will be scheduled for your second visit which includes a report of findings. This may include an adjustment, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. 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.
