First Visit

First Visit

All patients receive a comprehensive, informative first visit to ensure accurate diagnosis and care plan from Dr. Mankey and Mankey Family Chiropractic.

Brief Paperwork

We have our forms online so that you can fill them out at the convenience of your home. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Please download, print, and fill out the following forms and bring them with you for your first visit:

1. Patient Intake

2. Health History

3. Review of Systems

4. Funtional Rating Index

5. Informed Consent

6. Financial Policy



Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to refer out for x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments and/or soft tissue therapies.

Home Instructions

At Mankey Family Chiropractic, we believe strongly in working as a team towards your optimal function and improving your overall quality of life. Prior to leaving, patients will often be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within the same day and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
