You can expect to be greeted as a member of our family with respect and courtesy by our friendly and helpful staff. You will be asked to complete a few forms so that you can accurately share your current state of health. Our new patient paperwork can be downloaded from our website in New Patient Center. If you are able to print out the new patient paperwork and email, fax, or bring it with you to your appointment, we will be able to consult with you more quickly and reduce your waiting time. If you have any questions please call our office.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Blair Copp to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Copp to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to which type of evaluation and examination procedures will benefit your specific needs.
After your consultation, Dr. Copp will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Dr. Copp may test your flexibility and range of motion and other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take 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
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Copp 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 thoroughly reviewing your past and present health histories, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Copp will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Copp will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Treatment recommendations will be made and all finances will be discussed before starting care. We will work with you to make it affordable. We also accept most insurance plans and Care Credit.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical medicine, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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
