First Visit

The New Patient Comprehensive Visit is separated into two days:

  • On day one (2 hours), a broad range of information is gathered using applied kinesiologic and chiropractic exams, body composition, posture analysis, biofeedback, and neurological testing.
    • Prior to your appointment please do not have any caffeine or alcohol 12 hours prior to your exam as well as refrain from exercising, saunaing, or taking any nutritional supplements on the day of your exam.
    • We have all patients remove their shoes in our office so please bring a clean pair of shoes, slippers, or socks if you are uncomfortable with being barefoot.

  • On day two (1.5 hours) you will meet with Dr.Schilling to go over our findings and be presented with a care plan to help you reach your health goals as promptly as possible! This will include your recommended treatments and a supplement list to get you in the right direction to a symptom-free, better quality life!

The whole new patient appointment is $195 plus tax, a value of over $600!

*The supplements are not included in the appointment cost*

New Patient Forms:

Please print out and complete your paperwork prior to your appointment.

The initial visit typically includes a structural exam; food and chemical sensitivity screening; organ stress screening; nutritional testing & recommendations; cellular and body mass analysis; and pulsed magnetic therapy.

If you would like your health information to be shared please print out and bring a release of information to your next visit. There is one for legal/healthcare means as well as one for personal use, for example, sharing information to anyone you wish to schedule appointments or have knowledge in regards to the supplements you are currently on. These forms can be found here.

What to expect at the initial appointment:

We typically schedule new patients for a two-day intake appointment. Day one is roughly an hour and a half, and day two is approximately one hour.
On Day One we do various tests and gather information to gain a complete understanding of your body. On Day Two, we go over your results, and we'll provide you an individualized program and supplement list to jump-start the healing process to reach your optimal health.

How does the doctor gather information?

We gather a broad range of information using many diagnostic tools such as; Orthopedic, Neurologic, Chiropractic, Kinesiology testing, a BIA (Bio Impedance Analysis) unit, and an EAV (Electro-Acupuncture by Voll) system.

Kinesiology/muscle testing is a system of biofeedback, using a series of reflex points to connect internal dysfunction with outward symptoms. Acting as a window to see the body through the nervous system. This testing allows us to ask your body what is and is not working for you. Helping us add and subtract variables based on the bodies stress responses.

What if I am healthy?

If you are, that's great! We want you to stay that way. Our clinic is based on preventive care so you avoid developing future problems. It's amazing how many healthy people come in and leave with a greater knowledge and understanding of their health. For example, what food/chemical/environmental sensitivities that may drain their systems in the course of a day, how to best avoid developing symptoms or diseases in your family history, what stretches or exercises will be best for your body and lifestyle, and which, if any, supplements would optimize your energy, youthfulness, and well-being.

My doctor says that I am fine but I just don't feel healthy. What can I do?

Functional illness is that grey area between optimal health and disease. Many people have some signs and symptoms of functional illness such as fatigue, headaches, indigestion, back pain, allergies, and dozens of other complaints which interfere with their quality of life. These signs and symptoms aren't really addressed by mainstream medicine which usually deals with disease. If your medical doctor has ruled out the presence of a disease-causing your symptoms, then you are left with a functional problem which may not have a name.

Why do you use vitamins, supplements, and herbs in your practice?

For most people, their health is very dependent on the food they eat and the nutrition they derive from that food. Unfortunately, as our soil becomes more and more depleted; environmental toxins attack our food supply; and genetic "solutions" mess with the original makeup of our food; we receive very little intended nutrients.

Supplement recommendation varies from person to person. Some people need ongoing maintenance or supportive supplements to help their cells function at optimum levels; while others may only need temporary supplementation while their body is healing.

What if I am scared of an adjustment?

The doctors utilize many different methods to alleviate structural problems. In fact, he uses several low force adjusting techniques which do not require forceful adjustments of the spine. Please be honest with us when it comes to your fears and expectations from our clinic and we will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable.

What type of insurance do you accept?

Because we provide "health care" not "disease care" we are unable to accept insurance. Traditional health insurance covers the treatment of a specific disease and only reimburses for that treatment if it falls within their narrow guidelines. As we explained above, most people with a complaint do not have a disease, but a functional health problem. You should not expect your insurance company to pay for this because it was not designed to do so.

Unlike the cost of treating a disease with western medicine, alternative care is very affordable and effective. Most people find that by staying healthy with alternative treatments they are able to avoid the expense and side effect of western care.

As an additional service, we do provide all of our patients with reimbursement forms to provide to their insurance company. Some insurance companies will reimburse you for the chiropractic portion of your treatment. We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
