On your first visit to our office you will then be asked to fill out our required forms which will help us understand your condition and health concerns. Dr. Alvey will then ask you specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care might benefit to you. If Dr. Alvey believes she can help you, she will tell you that. If Dr. Alvey cannot help you, you will be referred to another doctor in Lufkin that may be able to help you.
Nothing will be done in our office without your consent! If Dr. Alvey believes she can help you, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This includes testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. X-rays are sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. If necessary, the doctor may refer you for additional testing procedures.
An adjustment and/or pain relieving treatment may be received the first visit, unless further testing in indicated.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and recommendations for treatment.
