What to Expect

Care begins before you arrive. Our patient concierge walks you through scheduling and helps you by providing patient care forms prior to your appointment.

Consultation

Dr. Borges sits down with you to discuss your health problems, concerns and potential treatment options. Our initial visit is designed to help Dr. Borges learn more about you, your condition, and expectations. Together, we determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals for improved health and lasting wellness.

Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Borges typically preforms a complete chiropractic examination to test your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical tests are performed as well. Nothing is done in our office without your consent.

Imaging

Depending on your specific condition, Dr. Borges may request diagnostic imaging as well. These images help us develop the most effective plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most patients are amazed once they see their images up close.

Report of Findings

After reviewing your health history, goals, and completing his examination, Dr. Borges discusses his recommendations with you. If your diagnosis requires care with additional providers, Dr. Borges will talk with you about your treatment plan and how your circle of care can best serve you. Dr. Borges is dedicated to designing and providing the best treatment protocol and wellness programs to fit your needs.

At the conclusion of this initial visit, most patients are eager to begin care and choose to experience their first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physiotherapy, and/or myofascial release.

Prior to leaving, Dr. Borges may suggest incorporating ice or heat application, certain activities or positions to avoid and at-home exercises or stretches.
