Upon entering our office, our receptionist will greet you and make you feel welcome. We will request that you complete our patient forms. Sorry, there's no way out of this one, this is healthcare in America there is no way out of at least a little paperwork, but we will try to make it as painless as possible.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Mattern to discuss what brought you into our office. He will learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how and if chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Mattern typically performs an embarrassment free examination, testing your reflexes and flexibility, range of motion and the like. Other standard neurologic, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Mattern will probably to do a low key "knee to knee" chat, explain his impression of your situation and address any of your concerns or questions. The most notable being:
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, how you move, stand and possibly any X-rays, Dr. Mattern will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Above all we want to make sure you are in the right office. A medical emergency like severely elevated blood pressure, a suspicious lump or a red flag that may come up in your history and review may prompt Dr. Mattern to run your condition past your primary or other health care specialist before we start any care in this office.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment to speed up your recovery. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Every person is unique, therefore everyone typically benefits. Ideally, as with all our patients we want you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, proper exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

"Observational study found that low back pain patients receiving chiropractic care, which typically includes spinal manipulation, are more satisfied than those receiving medical care." -New England Journal of Medicine Dr. James Mattern West Lafayette Chiropractor | Mattern Chiropractic | (765) 463-7337 1231 Cumberland Ave West Lafayette, IN 47906 Share Us With Your Friends & Family! Testimonial I've suffered from migraines my entire life. As I've gotten older they have increased in frequency to about 3 times a week. No pain killers, either over- the-counter or prescribed have ever been able to take away one of my migraines in the same day. But if I visit Dr. Mattern, and he adjust me, my headaches are usually gone within a few hours and they stay gone for quite awhile. Unbelieveable! I would recommend at least trying chiropractic care if you suffer from migraines too.
