What to Expect at Our Office

New Patient Forms

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance.

We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Your First Chiropractic Visit

receptionDuring your first visit we will gather the necessary information to see if chiropractic is right for you. You will meet with Dr. Sheaffer after filling out some brief paperwork describing your health history and your health goals.

The initial consultation and health screening is free, so that we can get to know one another and decide if you are in the right place to get the kind of help you need.


If you are a good candidate for chiropractic care and we think chiropractic can help you, the next step is an examination.

In the examination we will be checking for a condition that happens in the spine called a vertebral subluxation.

Your examination will also include a computerized examination called the Insight Millennium Subluxation Examination.


X-Rays may also be ordered, at an outside facility, depending on your condition. If x-rays are ordered, we will go over them with you in detail and your questions will be answered before beginning wellness chiropractic care. X-Rays help us to determine how long your subluxations have been affecting your health.

Before you leave we will collect your first visit fees, if applicable, and schedule you for your Report of Findings.

The first visit is approximately 45-60 minutes.

Your Second Visit

If you decide to begin your wellness journey, you’ll get your first wellness chiropractic adjustment.

This may be the most important day of your life!

If you have a 3rd party insurance, we try to have your insurance verification done by this visit so everything about finances are as clear as possible. Many patients do not have insurance and can still afford wellness chiropractic care in our office.

Appointments will be scheduled as far into the future as your schedule permits.

A Typical Office Visit

Dr. Sheaffer adjusts a pregnant patientOnce we begin your care, a typical office visit takes only a few moments. You will be greeted at the front desk and go back to one of our large open family adjusting areas.

You will be asked to lay down on the adjusting table, relax, and breathe deeply. While you are lying down, you’ll want to think of something calming to you and relax your muscles and more importantly, your brain!

During your office visit you will always be given the opportunity to ask Dr. Sheaffer any questions about your current condition or any other health concerns you have.

You will receive a re-exam on the Millennium Subluxation scanner approx. every 12 visits to monitor your nerve system.

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that. So, check us out here. Get to know us. Call Sheaffer Family Chiropractic now to schedule an appointment and let’s see how chiropractic care can help you!
