Your First Visit:
Our office administrator, Carrie, will welcome you into our practice and help with any information required. Please feel free to ask for any clarification regarding the recommendations that we will be sharing with you.
Please try to have our initial paperwork filled out prior to your initial consultation. Dr. Valliant will go over your health background with you to determine what may be contributing to any discomfort you are experiencing.
During your spinal evaluation a Neuro-Spinal scan will be taken that will accurately report on the efficiency of your central nervous system. The scans consist of three parts: the heart rate variability, the thermal (skin temperature) and the surface EMG (muscles). The scans are non-invasive and take about 15 minutes to complete. This technology is certified by the Space Foundation and was originally created to measure the gravitational effect on the spines of space shuttle astronauts.
This validated and evidence-based technology allows us to objectively identify unmanaged stress patterns in the muscles, joints, and nerves. Just like your medical doctor depends on technology to perform tests (blood, urine, mammograms), we as Chiropractors, depend on the Insight to be able to confidently determine if your nervous system is functioning optimally.
If necessary, x-rays may be taken. We have the capacity of being able to take x-rays within our office.
At the end of the first visit you may receive a Chiropractic adjustment. This is determined by Dr. Valliant.
Our new patient assessment takes about 45 minutes to complete. We pride ourselves in being thorough and making sure we find out exactly what is causing your current problems.
