What to expect at your first visit
At Life Chiropractic we make every effort to share our love and leadership in health so that you leave your visit with an elevated spiritual well-being.
Step 1. Help us understand your wellness history (First visit)
Upon entering our office, our friendly receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located below. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Please fill out thoroughly as this information can help us reach optimal results.
Step 2: Learn about the main stress triggers (First visit)
Next, you will have a consultation with our Wellness Coordinator or the Doctor to discuss your health-related concerns and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Wendt to learn more about you, your condition and expectations to determine how he can help you meet your goals and above all help you live a pain-free life, naturally.
Step 3: Get your first examination (First visit)
After your consultation, Dr. John Wendt will perform a complete chiropractic spinal, neurological and orthopedic examination. Further investigation must be done before an initial treatment to ensure you are given the best solutions for your specific needs.
Step 4: Advanced Studies and Secondary Evaluation (Relax and Wait)
Depending upon your needs, Dr. Wendt may order X-rays to evaluate the severity of injury or degeneration to the spine to give accurate treatment options. Dr. Wendt may also order blood chemistry to evaluate the severity of underlying organ distress, urinalysis to evaluate electrolyte usage and oxidative damage, or saliva panels to measure the hormonal imbalances causing many subclinical symptoms. If further studies are ordered, Dr. John will perform a secondary examination of the organ systems through Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing) and Chinese Acupuncture Meridians of the Five Elements.
Step 5: Report of Findings (Second visit)
Once all of the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Wendt will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- Can you help me?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
Step 6: Recommended Treatment Plan (Second visit)
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you may choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, soft tissue/myofascial, cold laser therapy, Neuro-Emotional Technique, and/or a nutritional or detoxification workup. Treatment is interactive, so you may express concerns about the different styles of treatment at any time. Find out more about Our Approach here.
Step 7: Scheduled Wellness Workshops (Drop in anytime)
Having a healthy spine whether through rehabilitative or preventive treatment requires ongoing care. Attend one of our workshops and you’ll learn more about the 4 main (universal) reasons people have symptoms and dysfunction. Dr. Wendt will share some of his great results, simple self-care techniques and more deeply explore how you too can enjoy a pain-free life. These workshops are a great way to bring friends and family into the practice to gain insight into healthy living. This workshop has the potential to change your life.
