During the initial phone consultation with Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates we will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial consultation is designed for Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals. If you would like for us to check your insurance coverage at this time please have your card available.
Next, We will request that you complete our patient forms online. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Completing these forms prior to the doctor's arrival allow us the time to review your history before we arrive.
During your first visit, Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
The techniques our doctors utilize do not require that X-Rays be taken prior to treatment. Depending on your specific condition, X-rays may be required. If X-Rays are required we will refer you to a local facility.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to schedule?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays (if required), Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Taushlea Green or one of her qualified associates will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
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.
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.
