Welcome to Big Country Family Chiropractic!
We are honored that you are considering a visit to us. By reading below you can learn what to expect in your upcoming visits. Then, contact us when you're ready. We're excited to meet you!
Before your first visit, after you've scheduled, we will email you our digital New Patient Paperwork specific for your needs. We ask that you take the time to fill this out with as much detail as asked for, so Dr. Cory can get the best look at your history.
Your First Visit
When you arrive you will be warmly greeted by our amazing team. They may give you some additional paperwork to sign and review with you what to expect at your visit. After a quick tour of the office you will settle in the consultation room, which is where you will first meet with Dr. Cory.
First, Dr. Cory will review with you the extensive health history you provided digitally, discuss any current or past health challenges, if any, and explore health goals and expectations you have. Second, we will spend time discussing what to expect moving forward at this visit based on the previous discussion.
We do not want you to move forward without knowing what we expect of you, just as you want to know what to expect of us. Remember, our primary goal is to help you, so the more we know, the more we can help!
Moving forward, we will head to the exam room, where Dr. Cory will complete a comprehensive chiropractic examination. This is very thorough, but allows us to see exactly where your challenges come from. We perform x-rays (if needed) and a computerized 3-part neurological exam which measures the amount of stress on the central nervous system. It includes Thermography, Surface EMG, and Heart Rate Variability. To read more about this state of the art technology, click here.
The goal of your first visit is to evaluate your spine and nervous system, determine how well your body is functioning, and find where the stress is that will need to be addressed.
Dr. Cory will then go over all the information collected and put together a specific care plan for you.
Report of Findings
At your second visit, you will again be greeted by our team and checked in. They will lead you to the adjusting room where Dr. Cory will go over the results of your examination and he will present the care plan he put together for you. This is also a time where you can ask any questions you have.
Reviewing Your Scans Together
Dr. Cory will review the results of the scans that were performed. The scans have 2-3 components depending on what was done, and each will be thoroughly explained and discussed how they may relate to your specific challenge. This is the most important piece as you will be re-scanned on a very specific schedule in order to track and document your functional improvements. You will be able to SEE changes as we progress!
It is very important to us that you have a good understanding of what is going on with your spine and central nervous system, so please ask questions as we go. There is always time for us to answer questions.
When questions are complete, you will move back to the consultation room, where our Care Coordinator will go over financial and scheduling logistics. Should you choose that we are a team that you would like to work with, you will move right back in to the adjusting room with Dr. Cory and receive your very first adjustment!
