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 New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Hilbert to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Hilbert 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.
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. Hilbert will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- Can we help you?
- How long will it take?
- What will the treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Hilbert will discuss recommendations for care and notify you if your condition requires care with other healthcare providers. We will provide the best treatment options to get you feeling better quickly.
During this first visit, you will experience your first chiropractic treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, traction or even acupuncture. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the treatment at anytime. You can also request certain types of treatment that may have worked for you in the past.
