Upon entering our office, our office manager 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 comprehensive consultation with Dr. Brenna Werme to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Brenna Werme to learn more about you, what your experiencing, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Brenna will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as needed. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Brenna will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- How much does care cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, Dr. Brenna will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Brenna will provide the best care and wellness program for your needs.
Your 1st Adjustment
Your first adjustment occurs at your first visit after the comprehensive history and personalized examination. This is where we begin the healing process with a few gentle contacts. Understand that this IS a PROCESS and that it usually takes time to get to the root. Adjustments generally last 15-20 minutes and are experienced in an open room. You may receive your adjustment at the same time that someone else is receiving theirs. Adjustments are interactive, and you can express whatever you need at any time.
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.
