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. It is important that you fill out the information as completely as possible. We will be asking for a list of medications and any diagnostic imaging that you have had in the past. If you have had x-rays taken within the last year please bring them in with you. If you do not have a copy we can request a copy from your Doctor or the radiology center where the films where taken.

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Chris Cheatwood to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for your Doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

After this initial consultation with Dr. Cheatwood, you will meet with our business manager to discuss your insurance coverage or payment options so that you are aware of the cost of treatment before you proceed any further. Once all of your questions have been answered you proceed to the examination.

X-Ray Studies

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. You and your doctor will sit down and look at your x-rays together and any questions that you have will be answered.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Chris Cheatwood 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. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your Doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Then your Doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, your Doctor 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/or stretches. If you desire, we will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
