Your First Visit
Effectively treating your pain and dysfunction while helping you meet your wellness goals, is our commitment to you. In order to help you reach your goals, your initial Barker Chiropractic appointment will consist of a complete consultation, a thorough physical examination, and an assessment report along with a suggested treatment schedule.
Before you see the doctor, Barker Chiropractic requires you to complete a standard health history form that will ensure the doctor factors in all of the outlying causes for your condition. Our friendly receptionist is happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have during this process.
Once you complete your paperwork, you will meet with your doctor regarding your current condition and your future wellness goals. The more information Barker Chiropractic professionals have about your previous and present health conditions, the more efficient the prognosis and treatment. Knowledge of our patients’ health histories and goals enables us to create tailored solutions that will put them on the path to recovery.
After your consultation, your doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination which often times includes checking your reflexes, testing your range of motion as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical examinations. If necessary, Barker Chiropractic professionals may x-ray your spine in order to get a thorough evaluation of your condition.
Once the examination is complete, your doctor will discuss the recommended steps to take in an effort to reach your health goals. The assessment report will help you determine whether or not Dr. Barker’s chiropractic services are right for you.
With your consent, your doctor will often times end your initial appointment with a question/answer session and schedule your first adjustment for the next business day which allows for complete analysis of the radiographs and examination. The first chiropractic adjustment may include spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy and/or physical therapy. Barker Chiropractic fosters a healthy, interactive patient/doctor relationship. We encourage you to voice any questions or concerns you may have with your suggested treatment schedule so that we can ensure you have a pleasant chiropractic experience.
