Preparing for Your Visit

We want your first visit to Structure Integrative Healthcare to be relaxed and easy. Keeping these helpful tips in mind will help you get the most out of your appointment:

  • Please set aside 45-60 minutes for this first visit
  • Dress in comfortable clothing
  • Bring any old X-rays, MRI reports or reports from physicians which might help us care for you
  • You can save time, if you like, by filling out your paperwork at home and bringing it with you

If you prefer to fill out your new patient paperwork once you arrive, that’s perfectly fine as well. We look forward to meeting you!

Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first appointment, Linda at the front desk will warmly greet you. She will collect the paperwork you filled out at home or assist you with filling out paperwork in the office as well as make copies of your health insurance cards; and discuss your insurance benefits with you.

Once Linda has answered your questions, Dr. Cortney will:

  • Greet you and show you to her office
  • Talk with you about your condition and concerns
  • Listen to your goals in seeking chiropractic care
  • Perform an examination and explain what she finds
  • Possibly refer you to have X-rays or an MRI taken on the same day
  • Provide gentle relief that same day, unless your condition precludes it

At the end of your visit, you’ll return to the front desk. Linda will help you check out, and she will discuss payment options, set up your treatment plan dates and schedule follow-up visits.

Your Second Visit

Occasionally patients have been referred out for X-rays or MRIs. If that’s the case for you, your second visit will be an opportunity for Dr. Cortney to share what she learned from the diagnostic report, and for you to ask questions. This will help her determine if she should go ahead with the treatment plan discussed in your first visit, or if modifications are necessary.

In any case, all patients are adjusted and receive soft-tissue modalities at each visit. The specific techniques and therapies Dr. Cortney will use depend upon your unique combination of condition(s), needs, tolerance and preferences.

Dr. Cortney herself gets adjusted regularly, even without pain or injuries, because she sees good results in her overall health and performance, and because she views it as maintenance for her well-being.

We’re here to answer all of your questions about chiropractic! Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your first visit.
