First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. At that time, Dr. Baer is able to determine whether your condition may benefit from Chiropractic care and recommend further examination. All consultations are complimentary in our office.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, Dr. Baer will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

If your specific condition may require x-rays or other diagnostic imaging (MRI/CT) to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you, you will be refferred to one of many area radiology centers that Dr. Baer utilizes and is convenient to you.

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, physiotherapies (like ultrasound or electrical muscle stimulation), and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

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.
