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. Michael McKelvey to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Michael McKelvey to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Michael McKelvey 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.


X-Ray Studies

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.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Michael McKelvey will give you a detailed report 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 X-rays, Dr. Michael McKelvey will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Michael McKelvey  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 adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Wellness Program

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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. McKelvey has been great throughout my entire time going to his practice. Very informative, no sugar coating and has provided me with a great wellness plan. I've NEVER been to a chiropractor who is this thorough and genuine. Front desk staff is just amazing! The ladies are super friendly and helpful. So far I am very happy with my experience, and I am feeling 10x better after several visits, which is great since I spent months trying alternative options for back pain and experienced no relief. I look forward to continuing my health wellness plan with Dr. McKelvey to improve and maintain my overall well-being!"
