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. Erick Peterson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Erick Peterson to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Erick Peterson 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. Erick Peterson 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, Dr. Erick Peterson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Erick Peterson 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 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 instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also 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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
