Welcome to Elite Family Chiropractic!

Elite Family Chiropractic is full of positive, healing energy! When you’re here, you’re among friends.

Your First Visit

The first time you visit Elite Family Chiropractic, you’ll be greeted by a member of our friendly staff. Since you’ve completed your new patient paperwork at home, just a few signatures will be required when you arrive. While you take care of those important first-day introductions, your children will enjoy our kids’ play area!

Our staff will escort you to the exam room where the doctor will review yours or your child’s health history and perform an in-depth chiropractic exam.  We are determined to find the cause of your health challenges.  Once the exam is completed, our chiropractic assistant will perform three essential tests with our state-of-the-art INSiGHT™ neuroTECH.  We utilize this cutting-edge technology to determine the functional state of your nervous system.  The tests that will be performed are as follows:
1. Surface Electromyograph (SEMG)

The SEMG measures neural efficiency.  This test determines how much energy is going into the brain from the proprioceptor muscles on the spine.  Two sensors are used that lightly touch the skin along the back and neck so that the nerve signals, which measure muscle function, can be assessed.

The data banks know exactly how much energy the muscles along the spine should “spend” to maintain proper posture and alignment. If these signals are too strong or even too weak, the computerized program will detect and score the results. Proper function of these muscles is important for more than just posture.  It is critical for organizing sensory input to the brain.

2. Thermal Scan

The Thermal Scan measures the temperature along each side of the spine.  The scanner will trace the base of your spine to the top of your neck.  The body’s temperature controls are affected by pressure and tension in the spinal nerves. Researchers have found that changes in temperature along the spine are directly related to how well organs work. Measuring the subtle changes in temperature control allows us to gain an inside view of how body systems are responding to stress and if you are achieving brain balance.

3. Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

The HRV measures the balance between your sympathetic (fight/flight) and parasympathetic (rest/digest & growth/development) nervous systems.  When there is sympathetic dominance, it can result in a person having significant health challenges.  Your hand is placed on a sensing platform that monitors your heart rate for five minutes while you sit quietly.  This test is widely used in cardiology, exercise physiology, psychology and now chiropractic. It is a reliable and valid procedure that measures the beat-to-beat timings of your heart. This data is collected and run through computer programs to look at the way that your body handles lifestyle stress. Everything from pregnancy stress, birth process, early traumas, as well as chemical, physical and emotional stressors, can leave a strain on the body’s stress management systems. HRV gives an accurate reading on the amount of “reserve” you have available for keeping up with daily demands and your body’s ability to adapt to stress.

Your second visit is where you get to the heart of your health. You will be greeted by a member of our friendly staff and escorted to the consultation room where you will watch a short video before your Report of Findings.

Your chiropractor will discuss your examination findings with you. The doctor will educate you about your results so that you understand the impact your nervous system function is having on your health and explain the role that chiropractic plays in your health and healing. Your personalized care plan will also be discussed.

Starting Care

A member of our staff will meet with you after your Report of Findings to discuss financial responsibility, payment options and appointment scheduling.

You will then start your care plan, receiving your first adjustment by the doctor.  At the end of your appointment you will have your care plan scheduled and your financial arrangements in place.  It’s our goal to make your healing the focus of your visits!

With your plan in place, you begin the Repair and Restoration (R&R) phase of care.  Your family will receive their adjustments from one of the doctors each time you come in and then have a chance to hang out and have some play time in our kids’ area. You will also have periodic progress evaluations so that we can measure how your nervous system is changing.  These scans will allow us to see objective progress, in addition to the subjective updates we receive from you as we review your goals together.

Patient for Life?

Some patients come to our practice having heard that once you begin chiropractic care, you’ll need to continue it for the rest of your life. Rest assured, how long you receive care is entirely up to you. Doctors will recommend a care plan, but the decision whether to follow their recommendation is entirely yours.

We ask our patients to consider this — your teeth and your spine are both crucial to your daily living. You wouldn’t stop brushing your teeth, so why would you stop maintaining your spine? Regular chiropractic care is one of the most important things you can do to preserve your health and improve the quality of your life. Once you understand the power of chiropractic and what it can do for you, you’ll want to consider a wellness plan so you can minimize nervous system interference and help your body achieve optimal potential.
