Upon arrival you will be greeted by our friendly staff. We request that you print out our new patient forms online and bring them with you to your initial visit. These forms provide us with general information about you and your condition, as well as, inform you of our office policies.
A consultation can determine if chiropractic care may be beneficial to you. If your condition is not musculoskeletal in origin we are trained to find, diagnose, and make the proper referral to the specialist you need which can often times be determined in this step. Consultations are by appointment only.
You will receive a thorough examination of the area of complaint which includes orthopedic, neurologic, postural , and physical examinations, as well as testing your reflexes and range of motion. Your treatment plan may vary based on test results. Re-exams are performed at regular intervals to further evaluate patient progress.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-Rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Following your second visit the doctor will discuss his X-Ray findings with you; addressing any questions or concerns you may have regarding your diagnosis, or treatment plan to follow.
Treatment & Manipulation
Treatments offered at Stine Chiropractic Clinic can consist of moist heat, interferential muscle stimulation, muscle spasm reduction, muscle strengthening, bone healing, ulrasound, mechanical and manual traction. You will find that our therapies help to relax the muscles which make your spinal adjustment easier and more effective.
A chiropractic adjustment is when gentle pressure is applied to an area of the spine having joint dysfunction. The effective adjustment of the body is interative with the patient, gentle enough for kids, yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete or senior. Most of our patients begin to see results in the first week of treatment.

Prior to leaving, patients will be given home care instructions to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. These instructions will aid the process of chiropractic treatment, when performed routinely.
