Upon entering the office, we will have you fill out your contact and health information at our computer kiosk. Then we will have you sign in on the electronic signature pad. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the information is entered and completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. If chiropractic is the appropriate treatment, then an exam will be performed with your consent. If it requires a different medical specialty, you will promptly be referred to another professional to ensure you individual needs are addressed. Dr. Nunnally can write prescriptions for physical therapy, imaging, and lab work as needed to make a proper diagnosis and care reccomendation.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized orthopedic and neurological tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Dr. Nunnally has priviledges with all of the area hospital and private networks to order xrays, MRI's, and more to conveniently accomodate your insurance in-network benefits.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time. At the time of your report of findings, you will be given a full assessment of your condition and will have the option of selecting treatment options that best suit your personal needs and expectations.
