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. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition which may aid us in your treatment.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Martin will perform a chiropractic examination possibly testing your reflexes and range of motion flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Dr. Martin does not refer all patients out for x-rays. Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you out  for X-rays, an MRI or other imaging studies as well. X-rays may 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.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Martin will give you a brief 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, Dr. Martin will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   This clinic will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs. He wants you to feel better and be healthy so you can enjoy life and attain your goals.


Treatment

Dr Martin Adjusts with the state-of-the-art Impluse iQ Adjusting Instrument which has a high-tech sensor that provides information from your body's response to the  chiropractic adjustments. It feeds this information immediately to a micro-computer located inside the iQ instrument to give the doctor real time feedback about the results of the adjustment. Dr Martin also may utilize other methods of adjustment depending upon the nature of the problem or your condition. 

At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, referral to physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime. Dr. Martin attempts to refer to other health care providers that he would refer his own family members to or that he himself would go to.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the 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,  our wellness team will work with you also 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.
