First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Patients are able to visit our website to download the paperwork. Patient must go to Schedule An Appointment, double click and patient will find New Patient paperwork to the left in orange lettering.

Patient may also arrive 15 minutes earlier to their scheduled appointment for paperwork. Upon entering the office, patient will have some brief paperwork to fill out. The paperwork provides Dr. Hastings with general information about the patient and their individual condition.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor 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, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which structural areas and/or soft tissue areas are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to complete x-ray examination 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 and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
