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. JON PINKSTON TO DISCUSS YOUR HEALTH-RELATED PROBLEMS, CONCERNS, AND POTENTIAL TREATMENT OPTIONS.  THIS INITIAL VISIT IS DESIGNED FOR DR. JON PINKSTON TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU, YOUR CONDITION, AND  EXPECTATIONS TO DETERMINE HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN MEET YOUR GOALS.

Examination

AFTER YOUR CONSULTATION, DR. JON PINKSTON 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.

MYOVISION Studies

DEPENDING ON YOUR SPECIFIC CONDITION, WE MAY TAKE USE A THERMOGRAPHY OR SURFACE EMG AS WELL. THIS CAN 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 SPINAL SCAN 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. JON PINKSTON WILL GIVE YOU A DETAILED REPOST 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 Spinal Scan, Dr. Jon Pinkston will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.  Dr. Jon Pinkston will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

Treatment and Wellness Program

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.
