What to expect on your first visit to Catalyst Chiropractic and Rehabilitation

Your first visit at Catalyst Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Beaverton will consist of three parts: History, Examination, and Treatment.

We ask that you download your intake paperwork here and have it completed prior to your appointment time. Alternatively you can arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete your paperwork. It seems like a hassle, but this paperwork is a vital part of Dr. Thompson’s evaluation of your condition. You’ll answer questions about your current complaint as well as your past health history. Once the paperwork is complete Dr. Thompson will sit down with you in the treatment room, review your chart, and ask some more questions about your current complaint and past history.

After collecting all of the necessary information, Dr. Thompson will perform a chiropractic exam. This can include any/all of the following: Vital signs, range of motion testing, a movement assessment, orthopedic testing, neurological testing and an assessment of the alignment and quality of motion of the joints involved. Once finished with your exam, your diagnosis will be explained to you and a treatment plan will be laid out and any questions you have will be answered prior to beginning treatment.

Lastly, if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, you will receive your first treatment the same day as your examination. This will be tailored to your individual needs and can include chiropractic adjustments/spinal manipulation, soft tissue massage, traction, therapeutic exercises and stretches, cold laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, or electrical muscle stimulation.

You will NOT be asked to pay up front for an extended number office visits nor will you be asked to enter into any sort of long term contract. A typical treatment plan consists of 2 office visits a week for 2-4 weeks. If significant improvement is not made during that time period, then additional treatment options, imaging, and/or a referral to another specialist will be considered.
