Your First Visit

First Visit

After completing the necessary paperwork, your first visit will focus on identifying the underlying causes of your symptoms.To appropriately identify these causes, several exams and tests may be performed, including:

  • Visual Postural Analysis                       
  • Orthopedic Tests
  • Neurological Examination                     
  • Palpatory Examination
  • Radiographic Evaluation                      
  • Spinal Biomechanical Analysis


Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Timothy Joy to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Timothy Joy to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


After your consultation, Dr. Timothy Joy will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Timothy Joy will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Timothy Joy will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition requires care with other providers.  Dr. Timothy Joy  will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


At the conclusion of the Report of Findings, you will receive your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

Wellness Program

During your course of care, the doctor may suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a specialized plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
