Preparing for Your First Visit

We will email you intake forms with instructions on how to use our online platform. For your first appointment, we ask that you don’t wear metal belts or jewelry except rings.

Your First Appointment

Our first goal is to get to know you—your history, accidents or injuries, and current health problems. We do a detailed evaluation, testing, and extremely precise X-rays. As NUCCA practitioners, we calculate our measurements to a fraction of a degree for peak accuracy.

Your first appointment should take 60-75 minutes (90 minutes if there’s a lot to discuss). We perform a thorough assessment, because our care is tailored to the individual, with no details left aside.

Your Second Appointment

At your second appointment, we’ll go over our findings and your personalized plan of care, which usually includes chiropractic visits. Depending on your needs, we may also recommend laser sessions, supplementation, thermography, the MedX rehabilitation machine, or spinal decompression.

Next, a gentle adjustment is done to bring back normal alignment. A posture check follows to confirm changes have taken place. Afterwards you will rest for one hour; maximizing the stability of your new alignment. Finally, X-rays are repeated to have absolute certainty that the spine is aligned and stable. If necessary, we repeat the process of an adjustment, a posture test, rest, and X-rays until we see maximum spine stability.

This usually takes 3-4 hours, so it’s important to clear your schedule completely.

You wouldn’t expect a 30-minute surgery. This process also takes time. Your body needs precision and rest to repair and regenerate.

This lengthy process affords our patient a significant reduction in the frequency of visits as their spine holds its alignment much faster and longer than with other types of chiropractic.

Ongoing Care

If you need regular adjustments, each session should take 5-10 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of rest. We’ll see you more frequently at first, then space out visits as you start feeling better.

We accept all major credit cards and HSAs. We offer a 10% discount if you pay in full, and a free consultation for new patients.
