What to Expect

What Can I Expect?

By consulting our office, you're taking an exciting first step toward better health. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is different. It is this difference that offers new ways to get well and stay well. We've helped a wide variety of people. So the first thing we offer is hope. You'll receive plenty of that here!

We've prepared this information so you'll know what to expect on your first visits to our office.  Getting started is as easy as…

1.You'll meet Dr. Barrett after filling out some brief paperwork (click here for online forms to save you time on your first visit) describing you, your health history and your health goals. We offer this initial consultation at no charge so we can both get to know one another.

If you're a good candidate for chiropractic care and we think we can help you, an examination follows. We'll study the way you turn and bend. We may test your reflexes. These and other physical, orthopedic and chiropractic tests help us locate areas of your spinal problems that could be the cause of your problem. Finally we will take three films of the upper cervical spine and any other x-rays that are necessary.

Following the consultation and filming you will be asked to set up an appointment for your first spinal correction at the earliest possible time (preferably within 1-2 days).
Note:  For patients who travel from out-of-town, visits 1 and 2 can be combined for your convenience. When this is done, you will need to allow approximately 2.5 hours for this appointment.


2.On your second visit, Dr. Barrett will give you a complete review of all x-ray and exam findings.  We'll show you what we found and the conclusions we've reached. If we find that you'd benefit from consulting a different practitioner, we'll make the proper referral. Otherwise, we will begin your healing process with your first spinal correction!

3.We'll recommend a program of specific spinal corrections tailored just for you. With a plan in place to fulfill your health goals, future visits will take just minutes. The purpose of these frequent visits will be to locate and reduce your vertebral misalignments (click here to see the effects of spinal misalignment) and monitor the healing process.

4.You will join millions who have enjoyed better health--without drugs or surgery. Welcome to our office!
