What to Expect

What To Expect On A First Visit

Vital Link Chiropractic offers a warm, friendly environment where your care and physical well being are just as important to us as they are to you. Our chiropractic office offers you professionalism and outstanding customer service and health care.

Upon your first visit to Vital Link Chiropractic you can expect a different environment compared to other doctor's offices. Unlike other offices where you may have to wait to see the doctor, here your personal time is valued and you will see the doctor at your scheduled time. At our office, you will be greeted by our office manager and receptionist Sarah, who will welcome you to our facility. She will introduce our new patient paperwork and explain how to fill it out in detail. After all the necessary personal and insurance information is gathered, you will meet with Dr. Matthew Kriewall for your new patient appointment.

During your first meeting with Dr. Matt, a detailed consultation will be performed. He will go over your paperwork and take a detailed health history. After your one on one meeting, Dr. Kriewall will perform a spinal examination, looking in detail at posture, gait, and curvatures. Spinal x-rays may also be performed to aid Dr. Kriewall in the exam and to rule out severe issues. X-rays can also help you the patient understand your exam findings and diagnosis more clearly. (X-rays are taken only if necessary. Necessity is determined by health history, traumas, age, etc.). Normally chiropractic treatment, or an adjustment, occurs on the second visit after Dr. Kriewall has had sufficient time to review your health history and x-rays. In acute cases, chiropractic treatment can be given on the first day. This is determined by the doctor and you.

After your exam you will be scheduled for a second NO CHARGE visit, or what we title "Review of Findings". During this review, you will be given a written narrative report that outlines your exam findings. Dr. Kriewall will go over your exam and x-ray findings and explain to you his recommendations for treatment. Several different levels of care will be introduced and explained. Though Dr. Kriewall will give his best recommendation for your care, you will be able to decide what type of care you would like to pursue whether it is relief care, corrective care or stabilization care. Within this treatment plan, payment options are also presented and discussed with any potential insurance coverage considered.

At this time, your chiropractic care is up to you. We look forward to meeting you and helping you back to health.
