What To Expect from your Louisville Chiropractor

Patient Forms

Upon entering our chiropractic office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family. We will request you fill our patient forms located on the Patient Papework page of our site. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.


Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Jones, your Louisville Chiropractor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Jones to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care is the right treatment for you.


After your consultation, Dr. Jones will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Each step in the process is explained so that you can have a better idea of what to expect.

X-Ray Studies

Your specific health condition may require us to take x-rays to to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they get their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Steve Jones will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions:

Can you help me as a chiropractor?
What do you recommend that I do to get better?
How much is it going to cost?

After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Jones will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the chiropractor will tell you. If Dr. Jones believes we can help you, we will recommend chiropractic treatment.

Chiropractic Treatment

Patients will generally be provided with their first chiropractic treatment once Dr. Jones has all the information necessary. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your success.

Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
