Your First Visit

Welcome

Dr. Val Prahl’s boutique-style practice is in her home. It is the easy-to-find red house on the corner. You can park in the driveway and come to the office entrance, through the screened porch in the back. Dr. Val will be there to welcome you. She will request that you complete the patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides your health history and information on your condition.

Consultation

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

After your consultation, Dr. Val Prahl will perform an examination. If for chiropractic, standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical
tests will be performed. If the visit is for functional health, nutrition, DNA evaluation, or weight management then different testing is utilized.
However, all is explained and nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, the doctor may send you out for X-rays as well. X-rays alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people who come to this office don’t require x-rays however, it is an extremely valuable tool if required.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Val Prahl 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 your examination findings, Dr. Val Prahl will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires additional testing or care with other providers. Dr. Prahl will provide the best treatment and functional health program for your needs.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, if you are here for chiropractic, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime. 

If you are here for other services, you may be instructed to complete a food diary and be sent home with some specific professional nutrients along with instructions on how to take them.

Dynamics of Healing Plans

Dr. Val discusses this with you after she understands your goals and concerns and after finding your body’s priorities. She develops an individualized program for you. In some cases, she reports to you on your first visit and in other cases she has you return for your report of
findings.

These are not one-size-fits-all programs. Every person is unique; therefore, everyone requires a customized treatment plan. One person may only need to be seen one time, or if the person has a problem that is long-standing or complicated the recommendations will extend over a period of time.
