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. Bortz to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Bortz to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, during your initial visit, Dr. Bortz will perform a complete spinal health 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. Dr. Bortz will explain to you how the science of spinal decompression works, and give you a full evaluation to see if this treatment is right for you. If there is a good fit, we can develop a treatment plan that is specific to your condition and health goals.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
