What to Expect in Our Office

day 1: new patient consultation & exam

Dr. Ashton will review your intake paperwork that you have filled out prior to your examination. A thorough consultation and examination will be performed including orthopedic, neurological, and musculoskeletal assessments to determine the specific cause of your complaint. Our state of the art, CLA INSIGHT scanning system, may be used during your examination to provide an in depth look at how well your nervous system is functioning. Dr. Ashton will gather the first visit's information and create an individualized treatment plan for you that will best fit your personal health needs and functional goals. Dr. Ashton typically does not adjust on Day 1. 

day 2: report of findings 

At your follow up appointment, we will go through a full report of findings from all testing and scans from your examination. You will receive a detailed explanation of how we can help you and what the plan of action is to get you feeling and functioning better. We will discuss what it will take to help maintain optimal health even after your primary treatment plan. Financial information will also be provided to you at this visit. You will receive your first adjustment after any questions or concerns are addressed. 

treatment modalities

Dr. Ashton utilizes a variety of low force adjusting techniques based on doctor recommendations. Chiropractic adjustments help to optimize communication between the brain and body, decrease nervous system interference, improve mobility in the spine and/or extremities, and decreases tension in muscles. 

 

Intersegmental traction may be utilized as a therapy service if indicated in a patient's treatment plan. Intersegmental traction helps to mobilize both the spine and the soft tissues surrounding the spine. Traction also helps stimulate important acupressure points along the spine to help aid in the healing process. A variety of other soft tissue techniques may be used to help decrease muscular tightness and adhesions, promoting better treatment outcomes.

 

Needle-free or needle acupuncture may also be utilized to complement the adjustment. Needle-free acupuncture is used with a special electrical instrument and works just like traditional acupuncture needles in a fraction of the time. Important acupuncture points are stimulated to help improve the healing process.
