First Visit

Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Please contact our office at 206-542-7571 and we will gladly email the paperwork to complete before your first consultation.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. While Dr. Mack looks at specific concerns, he focuses on the body as a whole to work towards a synergistic balance of all systems within the body.

History and Examination

In order to determine where your primary concern stems from, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized techniques, including Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique and Applied Kinesiology, will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. These tests assist Dr. Mack in creating the best and most effective treatment plan to restore health and balance to your body.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. While some patients require X-Rays, not all do. If another provider has taken X-Rays we are happy to request those records on your behalf.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
