Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our office manager, Tammy, will  welcome you as a member of our family.  You are invited to yourself to water, tea, or coffee.  All of our patient forms are available on-line so you are able to fill out the New Patient Health History form from the comfort of you home or office before your first visit.  This form provides us with your insurance information as well so we are able to verify your insurance benefits even before your visit.  If you do not have internet access, all forms can be filled out in our Exam Room.  This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.  Additional patient forms with a signature will be completed at your first visit.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. LynnMarie Leyder will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and range of motion. 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 request 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 many cases, x-rays can even identify spinal misalignments and degeneration as well.


Report of Findings

At the conclusion of your first visit, Dr. LynnMarie Leyder continues to evaluate your specific conditions and treatment expectations to better create a more customized treatment plan to match your desired treatment goals.  This information will be discussed at your second visit with Dr. LynnMarie Leyder when she will provide 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, postural analysis, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. LynnMarie Leyder will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. LynnMarie Leyder  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of your initial  examination, as long as there are no contraindications identified, you will experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, physical therapy, traction, electric stimulation of the muscles, decompression, and/or soft tissue medical massage performed by certified medical massage therapists.  All adjustments are very specific and gentle allowing Dr. LynnMarie Leyder to use very low force when adjusting.  There are many styles of adjusting but Dr. LynnMarie Leyder has devoted a significant amount of time to continuing education classes allowing her to have many different methods of treatment so that every patient is able to be treated comfortably.  Treatment is interactive, so you may express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


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 instructionsl, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches.  We also offer products at a reduced cost which will aid in your healing process such as Biofreeze and Spider tech kinesio tape.  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.
