Step 1: Paperwork
Upon entering our Chiropractic Associates of Alachua, we have some brief paperwork for you to complete. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Step 2: Consultation
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with either Dr. Powell or Dr. Richeson to discuss your health related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
Step 3: Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the chiropractor will ask you various questions related to your condition. A number of specialized tests may be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.  Your specific condition may require x-rays to rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Step 4: 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, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
