Dr. Mulcahey evaluating an x-ray

Though nobody loves paperwork, it is essential that we get to know you and the history of your condition. There are a few essential pieces we will need from you. Click here to download and print the necessary forms. Our wonderful staff will ask for them upon your arrival so be sure to complete them prior.

Consultation

Here is where our new patient assistant will discuss you and the history of your condition. There are typically a few key questions that help guide the doctor to the cause of your health challenge.

Examination

Now the doctor will utilize the information provided so far to carefully guide the examination and pinpoint the cause of your health challenge.

X-ray Studies

“To see is to know and not to see is to guess”. We don’t want to guess when it comes to your health. We have in office state of the art digital x-ray and the doctor will order a special set of x-rays (unless you are pregnant of course) in order to identify the cause of your problem and so precise measurements can be taken in order to deliver the most accurate Chiropractic Adjustments possible. You will view your x-rays on a large 60" monitor alongside the Doctor.

Same Day Treatment

From the Examination/ X-ray room you will be guided to a treatment room where we will answer your questions and, using gentle methods, guide you through your initial adjustment.

Care Plan

Chiropractic Adjustments are small incremental changes to your spine. Each adjustment builds on the previous adjustment to eventually obtain a successful end result. The doctor will base your care recommendation on your history, mechanism of onset, examination and x-ray findings. Your recommended care plan in our office might include Chiropractic Care, Massage Care, Prescription Orthotics or Physical Rehabilitation procedures.

Home Instructions

Self care is important but we also recognize that everyone’s time is valuable and sometimes scarce. Our doctor has developed many time saving ways to administer self care and may review those that are applicable to your health challenge.
