Patient Forms

Upon entering our office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request you fill out patient forms provided to you, or have them prepared ahead of time by downloading forms from the New Patient Center tab on this website prior to your visit.  The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.


Consultation

Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Brian D. Goelz to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Goelz to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care can help you achieve your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Goelz will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Goelz will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: 

  1. What is the cause of my symptoms?
  2. Can you help me?
  3. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  4. How long will treatment take?
  5. Will it hurt?
  6. How much is it going to cost?

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Goelz will discuss recommendations with you.  If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you.  If Dr. Goelz believes we can help you, we will recommend a treatment and wellness program customized to your needs.


Treatment

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.  Your first treatment is very interactive so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment and treatment you will be most comfortable with.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come intor our office, this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.  If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your progress and success.  Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan.  The foundation of a successful wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
