When you first enter the office you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly and attentive receptionists.

Patient Forms

They will give you registration paperwork along with paperwork that will help us begin to understand your current condition. If you’d like, you can save some waiting room time by printing off the forms here and filling them out prior to your visit.

Insurance Card

If you have insurance we’ll take a copy of your insurance card and check your benefits for you.

Chiropractic Video

Once you’re registered up front, you’ll be escorted to our exam room where you’ll watch a short informational video on chiropractic.

Exam

After the video, Dr. Valente or Dr. Czapla will enter and begin a thorough examination to assess your condition; taking your vitals and performing a variety of tests, including range of motion, reflex, and orthopedic tests. The doctor may or may not take x-rays, depending on their necessity in evaluating your condition. If the doctor took X-rays he may go over them with you after your examination or may schedule a following appointment to discuss his findings with you.

refer

If chiropractic isn’t appropriate for your condition, one of our doctors will refer you to an outside specialist or other practitioner as necessary.

Percussion Massage

After your examination, it is likely that you’ll be able to receive an adjustment on the same day. If this is the case, you’ll be escorted to one of our treatment rooms, where one of our chiropractic assistants will run a percussion massager over your shoulders and back to relax your muscles prior to your adjustment.
