Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Pilsner to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Pilsner to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


After your consultation, Dr. Pilsner will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.

X-Ray Studies

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 mis-alignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Pilsner will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including: How can you help me? How often do I need to come in? What will my treatment cost?


If treatment is required it 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.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. 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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve ideal spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
