Your First Visit in Our Office

Plan to be in the office approximately one hour.

Step 1: WELCOME! We are expecting you.

Step 2: Please give us your completed forms. If you need any assistance, no problem, we’re here to help.

Step 3: Next, you will be shown to the consultation/exam room, where you will see a short 7 minute video to help introduce you to chiropractic.

Step 4: After the video, Sara, Angela or Terri (the technical assistants) will ask you to change into the exam clothing (which keeps you covered except for your spine).

Step 5: The exam consists of three essential parts:

  1. Insight Millenniumtm — a totally non-invasive, computerized evaluation of your spinal nerves using a surface EMG and a Thermal Scan.
  2. Standard range of motion and neurological testing.
  3. Radiographs (x-ray pictures). The technical assistants will show Dr. Johnson the initial results of your examination and Dr. Johnson will determine If radiographs are necessary and for what area of the spine. The technical assistants will then make the radiographs at this point.

Step 6: Dr. Johnson will join you for your consultation. During this time , you talk and Dr. Johnson listens. He’ll ask you questions about your current health status and health history, explain a bit about chiropractic and take notes as necessary.

Step 7: Motion Palpation. Dr. Johnson will feel your spine to assess the position and motion of your vertebrae.

Step 8: If you both agree, Dr. Johnson will continue with your adjustment. Dr. Johnson will administer your first adjustment and reassess the position and motion of your vertebrae after your adjustments with motion palpation.

Step 9: Return to the reception desk to settle your account for today’s visit and schedule your next appointment.
