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.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Richard Hanley to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Richard Hanley to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Richard Hanley 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.
Report of Findings
After the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Richard Hanley will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions
1. What's wrong with me?
2. Can you help me?
3. How often do I need to come in?
4. What will my treatment cost?
This visit usually takes place on the same day of your examination, or may be scheduled for another day. Also, after reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, Dr. Richard Hanley will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Richard Hanley will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
After the consultation, examination, and your report of findings, 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.
