Your First Visit

Waiting_Room_Feathered.JPG

Upon Arrival

Upon entering our office, the first thing you will notice is that the surroundings are very inviting and comfortable.  We feel like even though you are in a doctor's office, you should not have to be made to feel like you are in "doctor's office".  You will be given two to three short forms to fill out which will take no more than 5 -10 minutes.


ConsultationConsultation

Dr. Hardy will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as treatment options. The consultation is designed for Dr. Hardy to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care will meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Hardy will perform a chiropractic examination which may include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of you.  X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Hardy Chiropractic Consultation

Report of Findings

   Dr. Hardy will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: 

  1. Can you help me?
  2. What do you recommend that I do to get better?
  3. How much is it going to cost?

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Hardy will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Hardy believes we can help you, we will recommend treatment.


Dr. Hardy adjusting a patient

Treatment

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment on the first visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.  Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
