What to expect
First you will fill out New Patient Forms to let us know your health history and general information about yourself and your condition
Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Philip Koch to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Koch to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care is right for you.
After your consultation, Dr. Koch will perform a complete chiropractic exam testing your reflexes, your range of motion and other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Your condition may require taking X-rays to get an accurate evaluation of your condition. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most patients will be amazed once they see their x-rays and will often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of findings
Once all the examinations have been performed, Dr. Koch will give you a report of finding and discuss his recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Koch believes we can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
