Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you.  We will request you fill our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. The paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.


Consultation

Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Carrie Welch to discuss your current condition, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Carrie Welch to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations, and to determine whether chiropractic care is appropriate for you.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Carrie Welch 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

We do not take X-rays.  Most of the time X-rays are completely unnecessary and there are very specific guidelines to regulate their use.  If it is determined that X-rays are needed, you will be referred to a board certified radiologist.  We work closely with several located in this area.  We believe that you deserve the very best care possible, and that means using a specialist in every field: adjustments by a doctor of chiropractic, acupuncture by a doctor of oriental medicine, and X-rays by a board certified radiologist.


Report of Findings

After discussing your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Carrie Welch will discuss her recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Carrie Welch believes we can help you, she will recommend a treatment plan.


Adjustments and Physical Therapy

Patients will generally be given their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.  Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.


Treatment Plan

Prior to leaving, patients will be given a treatment plan.  This plan usually includes instructions on what to do at home.  You may be given ice or heat application instructions, home exercise or stretches, as well as advice to avoid certain activities or positions.  Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized treatment plan.  The foundation for feeling good is maintaining spinal flexibility, managing stress, eating a healthy diet and keeping your weight under control.

  • "Dr. Welch is the only chiropractor I will ever see because all the ones I saw before her pale in comparison. She has a 100% success rate in fixing my issues for several years. Katya, the ComfortWorks esthetician is exceptionally talented and knowledgeable. The Micropeel Plus Facial I received from Katya was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I can't wait to get a lymphatic massage with Julie at ComfortWorks, because I know that anyone who works with Dr. Welch will be phenomenal!"
