Unfortunately, Dr. Clemons/ your insurance company/ state and federal law requires that we collect some information from you before treatment. You may complete your questionnaires in the office, or download from this website and complete it before your appointment. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition and basic demographics.
Next, you will have a consultation/ history with Dr. Clemons to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Clemons to learn more about you, your condition and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Clemons will perform a complete chiropractic examination. 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, Dr. Clemons may take X-rays as well ( about 30% of the time ). X-rays often 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. Clemons 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, Dr. Clemons will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Clemons will provide the best treatment and advise for your specific condition.
At the conclusion of this initial evaluation, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical medicine procedures and ergonomic advice. Treatment is interactive, so you can ask questions about treatment anytime. Also, most patients do not require more than a handful of treatments to get where they want to be health wise. We have no problem with patients only coming in for treatment when they feel like they have an issue.
