New Patients

Welcome to Andrews Chiropractic! We’re glad you’ve chosen us as the place to begin your journey to healing and health.

The First Visit

When you first come in, you’ll be given a small amount of paperwork to complete. Here’s what you can expect next:

    New Patients at Andrews Chiropractic
  • An in-depth history. We will determine whether your issue fits within a certain wheelhouse of conditions that include muscle, joint and nerve issues. To do that, we’ll take an accurate history; if your history sounds like you have a muscle, joint, or nerve issue then we move onto the physical exam.
  • A thorough physical exam. To make sure we’re ruling out anything we can’t see on the surface or get out of a history, an exam is performed to help to narrow down that cause. We make sure we accurately diagnosis each person who walks into the office.
  • Imaging or other tests. If further testing is still needed after the exam, we will always refer out for imaging or other tests that might be necessary before treatment. We want to make sure before treating anybody we know what the problem is and that you will benefit from care. Your time is valuable and we never want to waste it.
  • Passive conservative chiropractic management. If the exam goes well, we can possible move forward with a chiropractic adjustment that same day. Because we are committed to getting you the best care possible, we may need to refer you out to a specialist when necessary.



The Second Visit

During this appointment, which will be like a regular visit, we will find out how you’re doing after the last adjustment. You will be given a checkup to determine if any new issues have come up and then we will address those. Then we start with care, which could include many of the therapies that we can offer. We may perform muscle work or go right into an adjustment.

Do I Have to Go for the Rest of My Life?

No; you are in charge of your health care. We can make recommendations, but it’s ultimately your choice. You will be scheduled out on a week-by-week basis. We don’t do blind treatment plans of a set number of visits per week for several weeks, for example. Your care plan will be customized to your particular needs and goals.

Our Approach to Education

It’s our belief that you shouldn’t have to rely on anyone for health care. That’s why we equip our patients with tools they can use outside the office. These include exercise or stretching techniques and nutrition advice. We want you to grow, learn and achieve peak levels of health and wellness.
