Your First Visit to Our Springfield Practice

Springfield Chiropractor Office

You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home at Carter Chiropractic

When you enter our clinic you will be greeted by a warm and friendly smile by the front desk, Donna. You will have received some forms to fill out via mail before arriving and there will be just a couple of more items.

You should have already written up your health history and be prepared with your most important questions and your goals for treatment.

Dr. Carter Welcomes You

Before your first examination, we will do a quick computerized neurological assessment and then you are ready to start! Dr. Carter will first chat with you and explain the examination procedure. You will be asked for your food inventory of the last few days and asked about your water consumption. Before this first visit you will want to be drinking at least 3 quarts of water per day for best results.

On your first visit, we will do a comprehensive evaluation of your functional physiology. It can be likened to a “tune up” on your computer. It will allow us to see what is actually going on to cause the symptoms you are experiencing.

Depending upon what your presenting complaints are, Dr. Carter will individualize the assessments and then talk to you about the initial findings.You will be given some instructions for home activities and encouraged to keep a daily log.

At the end of the session, Sharon will go over specific questions and instructions and help you to schedule for your first follow-up visit.

Expect to be in the office for over one hour.
