Our Focus

More than symptom relief

Meet Your Chiropractor

Roswell Chiropractor Dr. Rana Slatton

Your first visit will include completing Patient Forms and your Complimentary Consultation with Dr. Rana Slatton. Following the consultation, most choose to begin right away with their Examination. X-rays may be recommended and completed at this time as well.

At your second visit, you will have your Patient Recommendation Consultation with the doctor and a care plan will be recommended to address your current health challenge and health goals. Your First Chiropractic Adjustment in our office will also be done at this time.

Patient Forms

At Wellspring Chiropractic, we want to make sure that we are able to thoroughly understand your health challenges, and our new patient forms help us in achieving this goal.

Complimentary Consultation

The purpose of your consultation is to help us understand why you are seeking chiropractic care and to determine if our office is right for you. We will discuss your health challenge(s) and your health and wellness goals as we strive to understand your unique needs prior to beginning care with us. Consultations typically last about 10 minutes.

Examination

The primary focus of our examination is to assess your musculoskeletal health and nervous system function. Palpation is an important method used in this office during the exam. This means that the doctor uses her hands to feel the spine and surrounding musculature to determine what areas are affected and to what degree. The doctor will also assess the range of motion of your spine and feel for areas of reduced motion. Your posture and nervous system function will also be evaluated at this time. Our examinations are quite thorough and may take an hour to an hour and a half, so please be sure to allow for enough time in your day when you schedule your appointment.

X-ray Studies

X-rays may be recommended for some of our patients. X-rays help us to better determine your current spinal health and allow us to see if any structural changes are present that could be contributing to your current health challenge. Although there are several reasons why we will not take x-rays, most of our patients do have some x-rays taken.

Patient Recommendation Conference

The Recommendation Conference is an important conversation with your doctor, where you will be able to review all of the results from your initial exam and receive a report to keep for your personal records. We love it when our patients get involved in their health and feel empowered to make educated health and wellness decisions, so we encourage you to ask any questions you may have. At this time, the doctor will recommend a course of action that will best address your current health challenge and meet your health and wellness goals. The report may take 20 – 30 minutes depending on how extensive your case is.

First Adjustment

Following your Recommendation Conference, you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment in our office. Even individuals that have been to a chiropractor before may not be familiar with some of the adjusting techniques that Dr. Slatton utilizes, so she will explain what to expect at this time.

3rd visit and beyond

At each subsequent visit to our office, you will be evaluated and adjusted when indicated. Because the care you receive in our office in only part of the picture when it comes to your health and reaching your health goals, the doctor may also recommend specific home care activities to enhance the care you receive in our office, like stretches and/or strengthening exercises.

Throughout your care with us, it is important to periodically assess your progress. Dr. Slatton will recommend these re-assessment visits based on your specific case.

If at any time during your care with us, you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to ask. We try to maintain an open dialogue with all of our patients, so that we are always on the same page in helping you reach your goals.

Are you ready to get on the road to health? It’s a great day to start, so please don’t wait!
