First Visit

The first thing we will ask you to do is complete brief questionnaires designed to gather information about the health complaints which are your primary concern. We will also ask about your health history, other care you may have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.), your job, and questions that will help us determine the nature of your illness and the best way to go about helping you. Once information is gathered, Dr. Luxon will sit down with you and discuss your individual concerns in more detail.

A physical examination will be performed along with tests that Dr. Luxon feels are appropriate for your particular case. Testing may include x-rays, electromyography, thermography, range-of-motion analysis, strength testing, sensory testing, laboratory analysis and other diagnostic procedures. In addition, a spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition.

After fully evaluating the results of your exam and any additional tests that are performed, Dr. Luxon will review the results of his findings with you. If it is determined that chiropractic care is the best course of action for your problem, treatment will be explained in detail before you receive care. If it appears that your case would be better treated elsewhere, you will be referred to the appropriate specialist.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
