(First Visit – We do not typically treat on the first visit. We do a thorough exam and xrays)
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete a few additional forms (including - consent, financial policies, arbitration, HIPPA, and an optional primary physician form).
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Barney to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine if chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Barney will perform a thorough 100 point examination, testing will including neurologic, orthopedic, postural, range of motion, strength and reflexes.
X-rays will be taken unless there is a specific condition that will prohibit (an example is pregnancy). The X-rays help us develop the most specific and effective treatment plan for you and also alerts us to any serious conditions not detected in the exam. Most people are amazed to see their X-rays up close (as they are able to see their misalignments and years of degeneration)

At the conclusion of this 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 ask any questions or express concerns about the different styles of treatment modalities at anytime.
