Chiropractic Care

What to Expect on Your First Visit

Before arriving for your first visit, we will ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire regarding your contact information, health history, health concerns, and how we can best serve you. View new patient forms.

When meeting with Dr. Courtney, she will engage in an open conversation with you about your history and health concerns and provide a thorough chiropractic examination. If you have recent x-rays or MRIs (within the past two years), we ask that you please bring them in with you on your first visit. If necessary, she may refer out for x-rays or an MRI.

After your exam, Dr. Courtney will briefly discuss some of her initial findings with you and whether she thinks she can help with your case. Assuming there are no complicating or contraindicated factors, generally, you will be given a very gentle adjustment on that day. If she discovers that further x-rays or testing should be done before she treats you, you may be asked to return for your first adjustment.

On your second visit, Dr. Courtney will further explain why you may be struggling with this problem, how long it will take to resolve it, and what your pricing options and insurance coverage is for creating improved wellness for you.

You can expect to be with us on your first visit for 40 minutes to 60 minutes, and your second visit to be approximately 20 minutes.

All subsequent visits are generally 10-15 minutes long and include adjustments and some form of muscle therapy or cranial work, if necessary.

In efforts to support your journey to better health, Dr. Courtney is also happy to explore basic nutritional support needs at no extra cost during one of your follow up visits.
