YOUR FIRST VISIT

Patient forms:

Patient forms can be downloaded from our website and filled out prior to your first visit. This will save you time in the office and also allow you unpressured time to do a good job completing the paperwork with your medical history records close at hand. The paperwork provides us with medical history information, the details of your current situation, and the other life factors that could be feeding into your health situation.

Consultation

Next you’ll have a consultation with Doctor Buckley to discuss your health-related concerns as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for the Doctor to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations and to determine whether this type of care will meet your needs and goals.

Examination

During the exam, there will be some initial testing done to determine your level of health. These results will be recorded and measured against to determine how your healing is progressing as we move forward. The doctor will then test your reflexes, as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent. It may be recommended that you get x-rays of certain areas based on the findings in the initial exam and the severity of the condition. These x-rays help us to rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of findings

Once all the information and examinations are performed the doctor will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions:

  1. Can you help me?
  2. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  3. How much is it going to cost?

After discussing with you your history and goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, the doctor will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Doctor Buckley believes he can help you he will recommend a treatment plan and the ways that you can maintain your forward progress through homecare, diet, and exercise.

Treatment

Doctor Buckley is well-versed and certified in many different chiropractic techniques. Some conventional adjusting, some low force techniques, and some no force techniques. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any preferences you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.

Homecare Program

We find that we get the best results when you are engaged in supportive care at home between visits.

If you’re in pain when you first come to our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions as well as home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle we will work with you to create helpful habits and routines that support your success. Everybody is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
