New Patients - What to Expect

Initial Consultation

On your first visit we will perform a consultation, neurological & orthopedic exam and motion x-rays to find the source of your problem. A relief treatment may be provided on your initial visit depending on your condition. The vertebra move in 14 different directions around 300,000 nerve fibers so we need to be careful in what we do.

Please take a minute to complete the new patient paperwork to the right and bring it to your first appointment. 

Treatment Plan

On the second visit Dr. Craig will review your chief complaint, exam findings, x-rays and answer any questions you may have concerning your condition. The report answers the 4 basic questions:

  • What is wrong with me?
  • Can you fix it?
  • How long will it take?
  • How much will it cost?

After all your questions have been answered your treatment will begin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my first visit cost?

There is no charge for your first or second visit, we want to find the problem on your first visit using motion x=rays and discuss treatment options on your second visit (treatment not included). 

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on how long you've had the problem, condition of your spine, overall health, age, weight, occupation, history of trauma, diet and exercise habits.

What if I only want to do a few treatments instead of a treatment plan?

It's your body and your choice, you can do as many or as few as you want. I will give you my "Perfect World Recommendations", after we review you x-rays.

How much will my insurance cover?

Some plans cover everything while others only cover the initial stage of care. We will discuss the lovely world of insurance after we check your benefits.
