First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, if you didn't register on-line with the "New Patient Registration" button you will be given some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself. Our office utilizes a state of the art Electronic Medical Records system. All of the records pertaining to your care are securely stored and encrypted electronically. After completion of the initial paperwork you will be asked to answer questions on your health and current condition on a very simple touch screen computer

Consultation

Once the paperwork and initial computer work has been completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Iehl to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.


History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, Dr. Iehl will review the information you provided on the computer and ask you various questions related to your condition to clarify and expand on your total health picture. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days.
