New Chiropractic Patients: Your First Visit & Online Paperwork
On your first meeting with Dr. Brown-Ruegg, a thorough health history is obtained. This helps pinpoint the actual root cause of your problem and not just the symptoms with the end goal of helping protect the investment of time and money in your health and empowering you to make informed choices about treatment options.
Next Dr. Brown-Ruegg performs an examination of your spine, posture and body alignment. He takes you through a couple of specialized tests to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
He may also examine other areas depending on your specific complaints, such as shoulders, knees or feet. Your specific condition may require x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Upon completion of this initial exam, a follow-up appointment is made usually within 1-2 days to go over the complete results and discuss treatment options.
