"To see is to know. Not to see is to guess." Dr. Payne will NOT guess about your health!
STEP #1: COMPLETE AND SUBMIT NEW PATIENT MEMBER INTAKE FORMS
Complete the practice member new patient forms so we can get to know you better. Dr. Payne will use this information to create your customized care plan.
STEP #2: WELCOME AND OFFICE TOUR (FIRST VISIT)
When you arrive to our office, we want you to feel right at home. Dr. Payne will give you a brief tour of Salance Chiropractic Clinic (SCC) to introduce you to our staff and to also explain her treatment methods. During the tour, you will gain a better understanding of what our specific, precise postural and spinal corrective methods entail.
STEP #3: WELLNESS BREAKTHROUGH CONSULTATION AND ASSESSMENT (FIRST VISIT)
On your first visit, you will meet with Dr. Payne to review your health history to create YOUR VISION of ideal living. This consultation is complimentary.
If you wish to proceed with the examination to discover the CAUSE of your musculoskeletal health concerns, we will begin your health assessment process which will include a digital thermal scan of your spine, an EMG (electromyographic scan) of your neck and back, a digital 3D posture scan, and a digital foot scan (to see if your feet are also contributing to your musculoskeletal discomfort). No radiation is produced with these scans.
An EMG (electromyographic) scan is done to measure the body’s response to spinal misalignments, subluxations. It measures the structural patterns that you have adopted over the years. As we adjust the spine and remove pressure on the nerves, these patterns will change. The EMG measures the signal of the muscle. This allows us, as chiropractors, to objectively chart your progress and demonstrate that your body is improving through the elimination of nerve interference.
The other test, which this technology offers, is called Thermal Scanning. The thermal scanners are actually infrared cameras that measure the nerve signal controlling and coordinate the organs. If this signal is interfered with, there will be a gradual deterioration of function of the target tissue.
If applicable, you will receive a therapeutic treatment at the end of your first visit to begin reducing inflammation and pain in your chief area of complaint. This therapeutic treatment may consist of ultrasound therapy (to reduce inflammation and soften muscular scar tissue), cold laser therapy (to speed healing), spinal decompression (to reduce pressure in muscles, ligaments, discs), and/or moist heat therapy.
Plan to spend 1 hour at our office during this visit. Your total health investment for the entire assessment (plus the therapeutic treatment) is $80.
STEP #4: EXTENDED CONSULTATION, REPORT OF FINDINGS, AND PLAN OF CARE (SECOND VISIT)
During your second visit, the extended consultation, Dr. Payne will share what she discovered about your health based on your consultation, exams, scans, and x-rays (if they were taken). From there, she will provide your Customized Care Plan (with payment plan options), which is the route for regaining and keeping your health. During that time she will also share ways in which you can save money on your care. We find that it’s much easier to bring your spouse/significant other with you so that they can hear what Dr. Payne reports concerning your health. As well, it’s best when your spouse/significant other can ask questions if they so desire. Next, you will be introduced to and experience your first Activator Methods adjustment. It's as simple as that!
Plan to spend 30-45 minutes at our office during this visit. Your total health investment for your second visit is $45.
All other visits last about 15 minutes. We fully embrace that you do not live to get adjusted but rather get adjusted to FULLY LIVE!!
STEP #5: ATTEND OUR STRATEGIES FOR HEALTHY LIVING WORKSHOP
One of the main rules here at SCC is that the only dumb question is the one you don't ask, so....ASK AWAY! The best place to have your questions answered is at the Strategies for Healthy Living Workshop on Monday nights from 6-6:30. This is a live workshop and is also on Facebook Live during this time. You will learn how to regain the health you've lost, how to keep it once you find it, and how to know if you're a step or two away from a health break-through. Your understanding of the AMAZING healing power of your body will greatly improve your results.
STEP #6: PATH TO WELLNESS
We are honored to partner with you for optimum living! You’ve done the hardest thing already…got here! It’s smooth sailing for you, and you’re in the right place.
