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; if you would like to, you can have this paperwork filled out beforehand by printing it off of the website here. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. 


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

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.

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Elise or Dr. Lara 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, We will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.   Rest assured that Our doctors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
