WHAT TO EXPECT
Your first visit is all about determining if you are in the right place. Upon arriving to our office, you will be warmly greeted. Once your paperwork is taken you will be given a tour so that you know where things are and feel comfortable. Then you will be taken to the exam room where the doctor will begin the consultation and exam.
During your consultation, we will have the chance to connect and thoroughly discuss your history regarding your current and past health challenges, concerns, needs, and goals for your health, family, and life. Then we will spend time explaining how chiropractic wellness care works and how our office works. We feel that the more you understand us, the more we can help you.
The next part of your visit is the exam. The exam done at our office is very through allowing us to determine what exactly how your spine and central nervous system is functioning. To do this we will perform a computerized state of the art exam that allows up to measure the amount of stress on your central nervous system. This test is the foundation of our exam. Once this exam is complete you will have a comprehensive structural analysis done. This allows us to see what compensation your body might be making to adapt to stress on your nervous system.
Please plan to spend 45 minutes at your first visits to allow ample time for us to connect with you. Our office understands the needs of their pediatric patients, especially with Neuro-developmental and Sensory Processing Disorders. Special time considerations are made for infants or children with special needs (ie. splitting the appointment time into 2 separate times: phone consultation and then an in-office examination). Our staff is trained on knowing if this is needed for you and your child.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT PROVIDE AN ADJUSTMENT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT TO OUR OFFICE
Your First Visit Includes: your consultation, chiropractic evaluation and examination
A vertebral subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body. sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
A vertebral subluxation is a stress response. Muscles go into spasm. Spinal bones lock up. And adjacent nerves are choked or chafed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This garbles communications between the brain and parts of your body.
Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches and back pain. For example. Interfere with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach: stomach problems.
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine. So having a spine free of vertebral subluxations is essential for optimal health.
Only a chiropractic examination can detect vertebral subluxations. And only chiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect to your nervous system, naturally.
Find out if you have vertebral subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.
Chiropractic adjustments add motion to subluxated joints. When spinal joints aren’t moving right and are subluxated, they can irritate the nervous system.
There are several ways to be adjusted, depending on what your body needs. It can be a gentle adjustment by hand, an focused instrument adjustment, or even a slow constant pressure. Dr. Ashley is highly trained in assessing what adjustment is needed for your specific health goals.
Our State of the Art Exams
What is the Subluxation Station?
A computerized and painless test consisting of 3 components: neuroCore, neuroPulse, and neuroTHermal.
The NeuroCore measures the part of the nervous system that controls your muscles. This test will allow use to objectively measure, monitor, and pinpoint overactive and exhausted neuromuscular areas.
The Neuropulse allows us to see how your body is handling the stress that is put upon it. The exam scans heart rate, temperature and anxiety to measure balance and activity levels of the autonomic nervous system.
The NeuroThermal allows us to determine what organs may be affected by stress.
