Your First Visit

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 located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Jeff or Dr. April will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays 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. Jeff and Dr. April will give you a detailed 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, we will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Jeff and Dr. April will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment at any time.


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 or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you 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.

  • "I enjoy going to First Choice Family Chiropractic! They are very professional and are amazing at what they do! I came in with severe low back pain. Dr. Stratford got me in as soon as they could, got X-ray's taken and went over them with me in detail. They explained my diagnosis to me and got me feeling like myself again. I highly recommend them!"

  • "I couldn't make through a work week with out Dr April! I had a wreck 3 yrs ago that gives me terrible neck pain and migraines. She gets me in for an adjustment at last minute (she works around my schedule) I'm a hair stylist and after long days of working I can barely move. When I have a migraine she dims the lights, massages my head and neck and takes her time. I appreciate her so much!"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
