Upon entering our office, our receptionist Donna 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. To save
yourself time, we encourage you to download and complete your paperwork before arriving at the office.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Murphy to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Murphy to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Murphy 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.
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.
Conclusion of Your First Visit
Once your consultation and exam is complete, we will schedule you for a Report of Findings. On this second visit, Dr. Murphy will explain what your exam findings are and what treatment options are available. After your
Report of Findings you will be able to receive your first
adjustment and other appropriate treatments.
