Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Amanda Keates to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Amanda Keates to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Amanda Keates will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Amanda Keates will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Amanda Keates will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition requires care with other providers.  Dr. Amanda Keates  will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "After suffering with back pain that caused me to be out of work for weeks and going to other doctors who were not able to help me, I decided to give Quintessential Wellness a try. Dr. Hammond and Dr Keates took great care of me, got my back straightened out, and enabled me to go back to work. Everyone in this office from the doctors to the office staff to the massage therapist is very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend this practice!"
