What to Expect

Spinal RehabilitationInitial Paperwork

You will be required to fill out our new patient application form. This provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. This paperwork is required by law, and serves to protect you and your health information.

Initial Consultation

A consultation with our front desk team is to make sure that you understand our office policies, HIPPA information policies, and to answer any remaining questions you may have before seeing your doctor. You will be given an office tour by one of our rehab coordinator so that you are comfortable with how to navigate the office, and your vital sign will be documented before you meet the doctor.

History and Exam

To determine your actual diagnosis, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Clinical examination includes: medical history, a review of previous exams and imaging (if you have prior imaging such as x-ray, CT, MRI), postural exam, functional and dynamic examination including: measured range of motion, cranial nerve tests, manual muscle testing, palpation of joints and soft tissue, and lastly, functional orthopedic and neurological tests will be performed. Your doctor obtains vital information from the history and examination; therefore it must be taken seriously.


Your history and exam may require us to take x-rays to further evaluate your condition, aid in our decision that you are a candidate for chiropractic care, and assist us in developing an effective treatment plan for you. If anything is found on the films to contraindicate chiropractic care, you will be referred to the appropriate medical professional.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given a written pre-report of the initial exam findings by the doctor on certain procedures to be conducted at home. This may include instructions for ice or heat application, as well as activities that may need to be modified or restricted.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

Patients will be given a convenient appointment time their follow-up visit. Generally, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete report of findings including x-ray analysis. Treatment options for your condition will be discussed during this time as well as any referral options or advanced imaging that may be needed.

Treatment Plan

All patients are different and so are their treatment plans. Depending on the acute or chronic nature of the problem the initial program will start by addressing primary pain generators and key dysfunctional links. Treatment plans are often formed with a combination of the following treatment options:

  • Soft tissue techniques for trigger point referral pain
  • Myofascial and active release for shortened/tightened over-active muscles
  • Spinal and extremity adjustments for joint driven pain and neurological reorganization
  • Stabilization and movement therapy for disc and/or instability driven pain
  • Nutritional consultation and direction
  • Functional re-activation and/or performance enhancement
  • Structural rehabilitation to correct distorted spinal alignment
  • At home and work activities to alleviate problems, stabilize tissue, and prevent re-injury

Audits of change and improvement are documented on a per visit basis. Re-examinations to track progress are conducted at 12 visits or every 30 days, whichever comes first.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a meeting or presentation please feel free to contact us. We hope this helps you in making your referral choice with Integrity Chiropractic.
