What to Expect

Welcome mat

You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door.

A Warm Welcome and Consultation

Our goal is to give you the help and relief you are looking for.  In order to do that, we’ll need some basic information that you will provide on the intake form and then you’ll get to visit with Dr. Adams personally.  This initial consultation will help Dr. Adams understand your problem and see if chiropractic is the right choice for you.  

A Comfortable Exam 

The doctor will then examine you thoroughly with a special emphasis on the spine and how it relates to the other functions of your body.  A heat reading instrument will be glided up and down your spine to detect temperature imbalances that might indicate a spinal problem or subluxation.  

The doctor will then carefully palpate your spine using his hands and fingers to feel for any areas of mild swelling and changes within the tissues or muscles. When the exam is completed the doctor will often wish to take any necessary x-rays of your spine. Meticulous placement of your body while in the standing position allows for a very accurate analysis of the alignment of your spine. X-rays also tell a “once upon a time story” that provides a clear look at old injuries, arthritic changes, and general wear and tear.

Treatments Tailored to You

You’ll then have some time to allow for the x-rays to be processed and examined before proceeding. Dr. Adams will then take a couple minutes to describe your problems and shine some light on the path of relief.  In many cases, Dr. Adams will begin some treatment right on the first visit so that some healing can begin right away. 

Subsequent visits are focused and thorough and tailored to you specifically.  There is no “one size fits all” approach and we work to stay on your healing path through and through.  Each and every visit will encompass a detailed analysis of your spine with a heat reading instrument and careful palpation.  This will help to keep track of your progress and allow you to get just the right amount of care–not too many adjustments, nor too few.
