Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. You will complete our new patient information form located in the link below. This provides us with your health history and information on your condition. If you prefer to wait for your appointment, we also have new patient information forms at the office.New Patient Information
New Patient Information
You will have a consultation with Dr. Matthew Drake or Dr. Sarah Drake to discuss your health related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Drake or Dr. Sarah to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Drake or Dr. Sarah will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. 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 rule out or alert Dr. Drake and Dr. Sarah of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-ray up close. Most patients do not require an X-ray, however, occasionally it is necessary.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Drake or Dr. Sarah will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including: 1.How can you help me? 2. How often do I need to come in? 3. How much will my treatment cost?
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, soft tissue and muscle techniques, or corrective, relief exercises. Treatment is interactive, so you can ask questions about the different styles of treatment.
Dr. Drake and Dr. Sarah 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 stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique; therefore each requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet and nutrition, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
