What to Expect at Cactus Chiropractic

Your First Visit

New Patient Forms

Please download, print, and complete these forms so you can bring them with you to your first visit:

Patient Intake Form

Free AdobeReader®

Each form is a PDF document file. If you do not already have AdobeReader® installed on your computer, you can easily download it for free.

Once you’ve decided that chiropractic care is right for you, we’ll have you download and complete our new patient paperwork so we can get to know you a bit better. You’ll bring this paperwork to your first visit with Dr Brian (Chiropractor).

Your visit will begin with a spinal health assessment, where Dr Brian will be testing your range of motion, your grip and your core strength. He’ll also use his hands to identify any spinal misalignments (this is called palpation).

With the information from his assessment and the information from your completed questionnaire, Dr Brian can determine the appropriate care plan to help you feel your best. If needed, he’ll order additional studies, like X-rays.

Preparing for Your Appointments

Typically, patients receive their first adjustment at their first appointment. You can expect this visit to last about 45 minutes.

We ask that you wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch and bend; this might be the same thing you would wear to the gym. Flat, comfortable shoes are best.

Occasionally, some patients will not be adjusted until their second visit to Cactus Chiropractic in order to give Dr Brian time to review results of X-rays or other studies.

Your Second Visit

When we see you in the office for your second visit, Dr Brian will provide you with a detailed report regarding your assessment, including a spinal health score. He’ll also review your care plan and give you strategies to help improve your score.

You’ll have access to a special website,, that provides you with detailed information about improving your health. An individual patient login is required.

This visit will last approximately 20 minutes.

Your Ongoing Care

Any further visits after this are considerably shorter, requiring only about five minutes of your time.

A variety of educational resources are also available to you to help guide you on your journey toward better health.
