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.
You will have a consultation with Dr. Roquemore to discuss your health-related problems and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you and your condition. Dr. Roquemore will address any concerns you may have regarding your personal health care issues. He will determine how chiropractic care can meet your physical goals and personal expectations.
After your consultation and with your consent, Dr. Roquemore will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays. X-rays help the doctor develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert him to any additional spinal conditions not found in the exam portion of your evaluation. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their own misalignments and degeneration.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations have been performed, Dr. Roquemore 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 the results of the examination, Dr. Roquemore will discuss his recommendations. He will explain if your condition requires care with other health care providers. Dr. Roquemore will provide the best treatment and wellness program to meet your individual needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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.
