Patient Forms

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.  Although our paperwork is extensive, it is necessary in oder for us to more fully understand your condition and to rule out the presence of any condition that might mean that you are not a candidate for chiropractic care or may need referral to a specialist.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Phillip Thompson DC will perform a complete thorough examination including chiropractic examination, evaluating your posture, spinal range of motion, aterations of joint position or mobility.  Addition testing includes orthopedic, neurologic evaluation and the detection of muscular imbalance or other factors that initially lead to your condition and that if uncorrected may perpetuate it or leave you prone to recurrence. 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 may help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Radiographic studies at our office are conducted in the event of significant injury or if there is something in your history that leads us to suspect that your spine make not be structurally souund.  Radiographic studies are not routine at our office.  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. Phillip Thompson DC will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. Can you help me? And if so, how?
  2. How often and how long do I need to be treated?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

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


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, massage or Active release Techniques, Graston Technique, Kinesio Taping and therapeutic exercise instruction.  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.
