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. John Falkenroth, to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. John Falkenroth, to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. John Falkenroth, will perform a complete chiropractic examination to determine what is causing your condition and the best way to treat your condition in order to bring relief as soon as possible. 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 refer you to another facility for X-rays or MRI studies. X-rays and MRIs help us determine the cause of your symptoms and to develop the most effective treatment approach for you. They also help alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays and MRIs up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
