Welcome to Vitality Family Chiropractic!
At Vitality Family Chiropractic, we want you to feel like part of the family and as comfortable as possible throughout every step of the way. We'll answer any and all questions you may have and make sure you have everything you need.
We are here to help you on your journey towards health. This journey can take time, with every visit being a step in the right direction. The more you know about what we do and why we do it, the better results you will achieve!
It can be daunting and nerve racking going to the doctor without knowing much beforehand, so this site serves as an information center for you. Feel free to look around and get some questions answered. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to email us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!
Your First Visit
Before you arrive for your first visit, we encourage you to download our new patient forms (located on the column to the right). The more information you provide, the more we will be able to assist you in reaching your goals, so don't be shy. Once you arrive, you will meet with Dr. Cristina for a Consultation and Complete Chiropractic Examination.
This is our time to get to know you more. Dr Cristina will conduct a thorough history of your current and past health challenges to determine is Chiropractic care is right for you. You will also learn about Chiropractic and how it is done in our office.
Complete Chiropractic Examination
If Dr Cristina determines that you are a candidate for Chiropractic care, you will move on to our examination.
First Dr Cristina will perform a spinal exam, which uses a series of movements and orthopedic tests to detect areas of concern and stress.
The next step is our computerized nervous system scans which allows us to determine levels of stress affecting the central nervous system.
For our adult patients, x-rays may be requested to gain even greater understanding of your past health history and current health challenges. Most of our pediatric cases do not require x-rays to be taken.
Your Second Visit
Your second appointment will take about 30 minutes. During your visit, Dr. Cristina will evaluate your examination and computerized scan findings to help you understand the source of your problem. He’ll also propose a customized care plan to help you meet your stated goals, and will present affordable financial options for your consideration. You’ll then be able to receive your first gentle Chiropractic adjustment.
Once our initial diagnostic work is completed, and we know what direction we’ll be heading in, regular visits should only take about 5-7 minutes. Most of our practice members are aware that regular chiropractic adjustments are an investment in both their present and future well-being and not a chore. The rumor that “once you go to a chiropractor, you have to go for the rest of your life” is just that: a rumor. Those who receive wellness care adjustments come in because they want to — it feels good to feel good! We respect your decision to choose, however, what you think is optimal for your health and happiness. Contact us today; we’re open late!
