You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door

Your initial visits to Bright Futures Family Chiropractic are all about getting to know you and your concerns. We want to be your resource for overall health and wellness.

Your First Phone Call

You’ve found us! This is where you’ll figure out whether our office is the right place for you. Our friendly and professional team will collect some vital information and answer as many questions as they can. They will schedule your first two visits at this time and provide a brief financial synopsis. They will also direct you to our online patient forms. Please have these filled out and submitted prior to your first visit. This allows Dr. Spiers to have a clear picture and insight into your health. It also guides her clinical decision-making process, and provides a starting point for best answering your questions. If you are unable to complete the form and return it electronically, please plan to arrive about 20 minutes early to your appointment to fill it out at our office. In the long-run this will save you both time and energy and allow Dr. Spiers to provide the best care possible. We want to serve you the best we can and having ALL the information is key.

Your First Visit

Please consider bringing anyone involved in your health care decisions. At this visit, Dr. Spiers will review your health history, discuss your current concerns, and establish your goals for care. Next Dr. Spiers will explain how the nervous system works and how that may relate to your current health concern.

Next, she will perform a thorough chiropractic physical exam including posture, range of motion, and palpation of your spine and surrounding muscles and ligaments. After the physical exam, our trained technician will perform your neurological testing. This testing is composed of three tests, which generate your COREscore.  Dr. Spiers will determine which scans are needed based on the forms you completed. The COREscore and testss give a clear picture of how your nervous system is working and the status of your health. It will reveal if there’s stress on your spine and on the entire body.

Please do not drink coffee, workout, or take stimulants 3 hours prior to this test. This allows for more accurate results. You will also be gowned during this process, loose and comfortable clothing allows for a smooth transition in and out. After our technician verifies your scans are complete, you are on your way. Expect your first visit to take about 30-45 minutes.

Dr. Spiers will then take time to review your tests and identify a course of individualized care for you. This information will be given to you at your next visit – your Report of Findings.

 

Your Second Visit

Dr. Spiers will go over the findings from your neurological testing and relate it to your current health. At this time she will provide you with her recommended schedule of care.  We highly encourage anyone involved in your health care decisions to accompany you to this visit as well. This will allow everyone to fully understand the plan and support you during this course of care.

In addition to understanding the plan and supporting your care, quite often it is important to have someone join you if they are involved in the financial decision making for your household. You or your guest may have questions about your financial investment; our staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. The goal of our staff is to make care easy and affordable with several different payment options. At this point, upon choosing to continue care, you will schedule out your visits. We have convenient office hours and we will work very hard to accommodate your schedule.

Adjustments

Our adjustments are gentle, specific, efficient, and effective, and often frequent to fully address your health goals. Good health and achieving your health goals will be a process and to achieve your optimal potential requires a commitment on your part in addition to receiving chiropractic care. Please allow adequate hydration, nutrition, and exercise to accommodate and accelerate your response to care. We are here to assist you with recommendations for each of these factors so that you are getting the most out of your care and you see the best results!

Wellness Care

After your initial care plan is complete and you achieve or move closer to your health goals, you may choose to continue with wellness care so that you can maintain or keep progressing. Health is not about LUCK it is about intentional care and focus. An optimally functioning nervous system is the key to a solid health foundation. We would love to be a part of your on-going journey to living your best life full of health and vitality.

As a lifestyle, chiropractic is not about just getting adjusted but it’s about the foods we eat, the choices we make, and how we care for our children and our families. Our hope is to be a resource for the community. We want to help you keep your body at its optimum health and potential for a lifetime.

We empower our patients through an email newsletter, educational speaking engagements that are open to the public, brochures, videos and more.
