What to Expect: Visit Schedule
- 1st Visit: Consultation, Exam and your first Adjustment
- 2nd Visit: Report of Findings, Problem and Solution, Care Plan Recommendation & Adjustment
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. Kip Mayo to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Kip Mayo to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Kip Mayo 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. This will conclude your initial visit.
Depending on your specific condition, we may send you for 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
During your next appointments, we will review your information previously collected and examinations we performed. Dr. Kip Mayo 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. Kip Mayo will provide his best recommendation and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Kip Mayo will provide the best Chiropractic wellness program for your specific needs.
At the conclusion of your report of findings, you can choose to experience your first chiropractic adjustment. The adjustments performed will be based on your specific condition and anything found in your X-rays. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns and ask questions about the different styles of adjustment at anytime.
Over the course of your care, 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.
