You will have to arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out paperwork prior to your first visit (we are able to email you these forms or you can download them from our website to fill out and bring with you). Once the paper work is complete you will be greeted by your practitioner who will bring you to a treatment room. Here they will first talk to you briefly about your health history and then about your reason for attending the appointment. Once this is complete they will do an objective/physical exam that will help to determine diagnosis and/or treatment plan. Following this assessment you will discuss with your practitioner your goals, their recommended treatment plan and follow up appointments. You will also receive treatment at this first visit and generally you will be given some things you can do at home to supplement treatments.
