Your First Visit

Patient Forms

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.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Our Procedures

At our chiropractic center our examination procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.


Examination

After your consultation, your doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, ranges of motion, standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests.


X-Ray Studies

Spinal X-rays may be taken depending on your age, and situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations.

X-rays are a common part of the examination process when looking for vertebral subluxations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. Weldon Spring Chiropractic Clinic (also called Missouri Spine Institute) developed a computer aided spinal analysis system that assesses over 500 measurements of the spine and pelvis. It measures the shape of each vertebra, how they are aligned one to another and how they are working together.  When we finish our examination, we can tell you about old injuries, abnormal curves and abnormal function. We produce a clinical blueprint that shows us what needs to be fixed, what can be fixed and what limitations might exist.

Using ordinary x-rays,  we produce a graphical map of your spine. We compare the position of each of your vertebra to the position of a fully organized spinal system and determine the vertebra that need to be repositioned.  We also measure the lateral bends in the spine and compare it to a well balanced functional spine. With this blueprint of where your spine is and where it should be, our doctors can determine the chiropractic/scoliosis rehabilitation program you need as well as the ongoing frequency of your care. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail at your Report of Findings.


Report of Findings

The Report of Findings visit is your most important visit and we recommend that you bring a family member with you. It is at your Report of Findings that we will give you a care plan and go over any special instructions you will need to obtain the best and fastest possible results. We have set aside specific times for these visits so as not to interfere with regular patient care hours. Our staff will schedule your Report of Findings with you after your first visit.


Treatment

Our Chiropractic Care utilizes the most modern chiropractic analytical, and adjustive procedures and equipment available. We consider subluxations to be a serious threat to the quality and quantity of your health and that of your family. It is therefore imperative that we utilize the most modern, and the well established time-proven procedures to help you. We feel you're worth it!
