First Visit

We are often asked what to expect the first time someone comes to Matz Family Chiropractic for care. Here is a summary of what typically occurs on a first visit for chiropractic care.

New Patient Forms

Upon entering the office at Matz Family Chiropractic, we have some brief new patient forms for you to fill out. These forms provide us with general information about you and your condition. (If possible, you can save time in our office by downloading your form, completing it, and bringing it in to your first appointment.


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with a doctor to discuss your health-related problems and concerns, as well as potential treatment options. We only accept those patients who we feel we can help.

History and Examination

In order to determine where your condition originates, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your symptoms. 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 take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time and your first treatment will be provided.
