First Visit

First Visit

Many patients are a bit nervous about their first visit to a new doctor; especially if that new doctor is a chiropractor & they’ve never visited a chiropractor before. They may have quite a few unanswered questions & concerns. Rest assured, Dr. Beel will answer every last one of them. You can expect a friendly welcome from the receptionist and if necessary, assistance with signing in.

Patient Forms

Next you’ll be presented with a few new patient forms to complete; the answers you provide on the forms will help to:

  • Allow our chiropractic assistants to quickly setup your account accurately and completely
  • Allow our staff to verify/confirm chiropractic benefits with your insurance company
  • Help your Doctor of Chiropractic completely understand your current health issues
  • Determine the direction and course of treatment

If you need any assistance at all with completing the documentation, do not hesitate to ask our staff.

It is helpful to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete your new patient forms. If you prefer completing the new patient forms in the privacy of your own home, you can download them here.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is were Dr. Beel will discuss with you your specific health issues, problems and concerns. Your first visit is primarily for Dr. Beel to get to know you & help you become comfortable with chiropractic, get to know Dr. Beel & understand your current health condition. Remember those new patient questions you have? This is where they are all answered.

Examination

After a thorough health history consultation, Dr. Beel will then perform a complete chiropractic examination. This includes checking range of motion, reflexes, as well as other standard physical, postural, orthopedic and neurological tests.

X-Rays

Each patient has health issues that are unique to his/her situation; as such, x-rays are the best way to:

  • Obtain baseline reference images of your current spinal condition.
  • Discover if any abnormalities exist that may need to be treated before chiropractic care can begin.
  • Discover simple misalignments, more serious subluxations and even degenerative conditions of vertebrae, discs and nerves

Closing Consultation

Once Dr. Beel has compiled, reviewed and analyzed your exam data and x-rays, he’ll then explain his findings to you in easy to understand terms. If Dr. Beel finds a condition that should be treated by another specialist before chiropractic care can begin, he will let you know at this time & may even recommend a good specialist. If Dr. Beel finds that chiropractic is the proper care to help your condition, he will explain what the course of treatment will involve, what it will cost and what your time and energy commitment will need to be. Certainly, if you have thought of other questions since the initial consultation, this is a great time to ask them.

Treatment

After the closing consultation, and with your consent, Dr. Beel will then begin your chiropractic care. This may include spinal adjustments & a number of other physical therapies. The type of adjustment and technique will vary according to your particular need.

To adjust the affected area, Dr. Beel applies a gentle and specific guided force to the misaligned area restoring function and movement. Removal of nerve interference helps your body to repair itself, healing naturally, ultimately returning to optimal function.

You may find immediate relief from some or all symptoms with your first treatment, but then again, you may not. The condition(s) that caused you to seek chiropractic care to begin with took quite some time to develop & it usually takes some time to recover, even after misalignments & subluxations are removed. You will find that the first few or several adjustments give a significant level of relief. Further treatments may be recommended on a less frequent basis, to stay ahead of ongoing stress, strain, wear and tear that modern daily life imparts.

Beel Chiropractic Center is committed to your health and comfort. Our highest calling is to see you happy, healthy and whole & we look forward to serving you and contributing to your renewed well being!
