WHAT TO EXPECT
STEP 1: New Practice Member Paperwork
On the first visit, each of our New Practice Members will be asked to fill out paperwork regarding their past health issues, traumas, and other concerns that may have lead to current health conditions. We ask our New Practice Members to fill this out as completely as possible. For your convenience, we have our forms downloadable online so you can fill them out in the comfort of your home. You will find our pediatric forms HERE and our adult forms HERE.
STEP 2: Office Tour
As a new part of our family here at Apex Chiropractic, we want you to feel as welcome as possible. We will bring you on a brief, but informative tour to understand not only where everything is in the office, but what to expect each time you come in to receive your adjustments.
STEP 3: Consultation and Review of Health History
Following your office tour, we will do a complete consultation to gather information about the state of your health. It is crucial to better understand not only what health issues you are dealing with, but how we can set health goals to make sure that you achieve the progress you are looking for!
STEP 4: Chiropractic Evaluation/Examination
After your consultation, we will perform a neurological Chiropractic Examination. This involves our SPACE Certified Technology to assess your nervous system, as well as a neurological and physical examination from Dr. Kamen to assess the health of your spine. We will perform re-exams throughout your care to help track your progress, and to make sure we are reaching your health goals.
STEP 5: Digital Quality X-Rays
If necessary, Dr. Kamen will order digital X-Rays that we have available on-site. These will give a clear picture of the spine to better understand what your spine has been through. This part of the exam can help detect where there is degeneration in the spine as well as a loss of disc space between the spinal bones.
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

STEP 6: Dr's Report/Customized Care Recommendations
On your second visit, Dr. Kamen will have taken extensive time to evaluate your health history, examination and potential X-Ray's to give you his best recommendations for care that will help you to reach your health goals. At this visit, we highly encourage you to bring your loved ones with you, as they will be an integral part of helping you to get the most out of their Chiropractic care.
STEP 7: Chiropractic Care
If you elect to undergo care, you will be getting adjusted at this second visit! This is a huge step towards your health and healing, and we are excited to be a part of it! We will explain what will happen during each adjustment visit, so you feel completely comfortable with the process. That being said, everyone's healing process will be different. Some Practice Members will feel better immediately, and for others it will take time to experience the changes that they are looking for. We will be with you every step of the way! Some Practice Members may initially feel sore or stiffness after their first adjustment, but this is completely normal. As we are making structural changes to the spine, the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body will need to change as well.
