Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you and review your paperwork and copy your insurance card if applicable. 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. Rehl to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Rehl to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Michael Rehl will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, flexibility, range of motion and posture. Dr. Rehl will observe how you stand, bend, walk, and squat. The applied kinesiology segment of the exam will use muscle testing to reveal any imbalances in your body. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, and physical tests may 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 suggest you get X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, show us any limiting factors such as degeneration, 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. Rehl will give you a report of 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. Rehl will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Rehl 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 and/or extra-spinal adjustments, soft tissue massage, deep tissue work (on fascial restrictions and scar tissue), neuro-muscular reeducation, or other forms of therapy. Treatment is interactive, so you can express your preferences and concerns at anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, Dr. Rehl 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, we can also help 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.
