Your Initial Chiropractic Exam
At Functional Chiropractic Clinic we are committed to helping you and your family reach and maintain your health potential.
The procedures we use are specifically selected for your spine and nervous system. Our goal is not only to relieve any current pain you may be experiencing, but to also detect and eliminate root causes of health problems that you may be suffering from now and in the future.
Step 1 – Learn More About You
On your first visit to our office, you will be asked to fill out some New Patient forms. This paperwork provides us with basic contact information as well as your health history and information about your condition.

You will have a thorough consultation with Dr. Porter to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and current condition.
Step 2 – In Depth Examination
After your consultation, Dr. Porter will perform a complete chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be necessary during this time.
Based on the results of the consultation and examination, Dr. Porter will determine if you are a candidate for chiropractic care and recommend a plan of action. The initial consultation and examination will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 3 – Upper Cervical X-rays
Based on what we’ve learned about you up to this point, Dr. Porter will take Upper Cervical X-rays to improve the quality of your chiropractic care. These X-rays are three-dimensional X-rays using the Blair Analysis, to determine the exact misalignment of your upper cervical spine. The X-rays and precise measurements will help the doctor decide what form of treatment is necessary to restore proper function to your body.
Final Step – Understanding How We Can Help
After all tests and any necessary X-rays are complete, Dr. Porter will discuss with you a plan for care that meets your needs, and you will be ready for your first Chiropractic adjustment. The staff at Functional Chiropractic is here to help you through every phase of your treatment. Please feel free to ask questions regarding your care at any time.
