Your First Visit

Patient Forms

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. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.

Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Garth Aamodt to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Garth Aamodt to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Garth Aamodt will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent. The initial exam may take 30 to 45 minutes so we ask that you make arrangements for young children if possible. We also have a prominent toy and play area in our waiting room, with cable t.v. and children's movies, if that helps little ones while parents are being treated.

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.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Garth Aamodt 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, Garth Aamodt will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Garth Aamodt will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime. Treatment is gentle and not painful. We do not use pseudo-science techniques in our office, but stick to hand-directed techniques that are tested and tried. We do not use "activator" (clicker-gun) techniques in our office as we do not find them effective or scientifically valid for use on adults. An average treatment for an established patient in our office, takes between 20 and 30 minutes and includes pre-adjustment massage, trigger point release or other relaxing techniques so the adjustment can be more effective.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

Testimonials

  • "I felt that Dr. Aamodt was honest about giving care needed. He solved our daughter's back injury in two appointments. First appt included an x-ray, which he used to explain the injury, and a manipulation which brought some relief from the pain. Symptoms were almost gone by the time of the follow-up a week later, and then totally disappeared."

  • "Dr. Aamodt, Aamodt chiropractic is the best. I have had issues that my PCP has no clue how to treat. But when I go to Dr.Aamodt he is able to quickly and accurately diagnose the problem and treat it effectively the same day I see him. He is friendly, professional and caring. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Ginger Pentinga"
