First Visit

1. New Patient Forms

When you arrive to our chiropractic office in Delray Beach, you will fill out some simple paperwork that only takes a couple of minutes. This paperwork provides us basic information about you, as well as your medical history and a description of your condition. You can fill these forms out ahead of time by going here.

2. Chiropractor Consultation

Next, you’ll meet with Dr. Ryan Alter and have a chance to explain exactly what is bothering you that would like us to help you with.   If  Dr. Alter feels he can help you, and you are a candidate for chiropractic care in our office, he will explain any costs involved with moving forward to an examination and possibly digital x-rays. (Nothing is ever done in our office without you knowing exactly what it will cost first – no surprises ever)

3. Spinal Exam

After the consultation, Dr. Ryan Alter will perform a careful examination of your spine to determine which vertebrae are causing the problem. This is the most important part of your initial visit and Dr. Alter’s ability to find “IT’(your problem)  is why so many people are referred to our office.

4. Digital X-ray

Commonly Dr. Alter will take digital x-rays of the areas of the spine he will be working on.  This will allow him to see the underlying condition of the spine, the positioning of the bones,  as well as any permanent tissue damage and what we are up against.

5. Explanation of X-Rays

The digital x-rays come up instantly, which allows Dr. Alter to go over the findings with you on that first visit.
