New Patient Center

If you’re visiting with us for the first time, we would like you to know exactly what to expect. We want to provide you with a great experience and will make sure that you feel welcome and supported from the moment you walk in the door.

Your First Visit

Please budget about 30 – 45 minutes for your first visit. You will be warmly greeted by one of our staff members, who will provide you with some initial paperwork and give you a brief tour of the office. Your vitals will be taken, and then you will be escorted to a private room to meet with Dr. Giddings, who will conduct a chiropractic assessment, including:

  • A consultation
  • An orthopedic and neurological examination
  • A surface-EMG scan
  • X-rays, if necessary

If Dr. Giddings does require X-ray evaluation to accept your case, you will not be adjusted on this first visit.

Your Second Visit

The second visit should take no more than 20 minutes. During this visit, Dr. Giddings will provide you with a report of findings, which is review of your examination results, including the X-ray analysis.

At this time, we’ll also discuss customized care options and a plan of action to get you out of pain as quickly as possible. This will be followed by passive physiotherapy treatment, which may take the form of one or more of the following:

  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Hot or cold packs
  • Inter-segmental traction
  • Massage therapy
  • Ultrasound

You will then receive your first gentle chiropractic adjustment.

Phases of Care

We offer three phases of evidence-based chiropractic care, accompanied by ancillary treatment protocols that help our patients to eliminate pain or dysfunction in a timely manner. Our mission and concern is to support each patient in the goal that they choose, whether the choice is to complete one, two or three phases of graduated treatment.

  • Phase 1: Relief

    This phase is designed to provide pain relief as quickly as possible. It includes customized adjustment protocols, accompanied by passive physiotherapy.

  • Phase 2: Stabilization

    The purpose of this phase is to provide stability and strength to the structures that support the spinal joints: the muscles and ligaments. Active physiotherapy is used, which includes core training and home exercises. This phase helps to ensure excellent spinal biomechanics.

  • Phase 3: Support

    This phase is also known as maintenance chiropractic treatment, which is designed to maintain the spinal correction that was achieved.

Our office is friendly and accommodating, and children and adults alike love our care. We provide convenient scheduling, same day appointments and late hours. If you are suffering from pain or a chronic condition, we may be able to help.
