First Visit

1. New Patient Forms

First, when you arrive to our chiropractic office in West Fargo, we’ll ask you to fill out our new patient intake forms. This paperwork provides us basic information about you, as well as your medical history and a description of your condition. You can fill these forms out ahead of time by going here.

2. Chiropractor Consultation

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

3. Chiropractic Exam

After your consultation, Dr. Andrew & Dr. Barney 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.

4. X-Rays (if needed)

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.

5. Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Andrew & Dr. Barney will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions. After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Andrew & Dr. Barney will discuss recommendations for your treatment in order to help get you to optimal health.

6. Chiropractic Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first chiropractic treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, intersegmental traction, and/or spinal decompression. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

7. Customized Care Plan

Prior to leaving, the doctors will have you schedule a second appointment with our friendly staff. On this second visit, the doctors will go over a customized care plan that includes any recommended treatment and lifestyle recommendations to help you achieve optimal health. Every person is unique; therefore, everyone requires a customized plan. The purpose of our care plans is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, exercise, maintain a positive mental state, and increase function in your daily life.
