The first part of the process is filling out a new member application with thorough information. To serve new practice members best, we must learn about your health history and any past traumas or injuries that could contribute to your health problems.

One-on-One Consultation

Next, you will sit down with a one-on-one consultation with the Cardinal Chiropractic staff. We will discuss your current health issues, goals for recovery, past health concerns, and we’ll review other questions and concerns you have. We want you to be confident in the care we provide and to expect exceptional healthcare that is customized for your needs.

Chiropractic Assessment

Once we’ve gotten information about your health and you’ve toured the office, Dr. Jon Budihas and his staff will perform a complete and scientific physical evaluation, evaluating the nervous system and muscles. Cardinal Chiropractic always uses the most advanced technology and proven methods to ensure we get to the root of any problems. In this stage, we learn what area of the spine needs to be adjusted and where the pressure on the spine is, and then we determine the most effective technique to correct the issue.

Diagnostic Imaging

After the assessment, we may take any necessary diagnostic imaging and postural x-rays to get an even more in-depth look at your skeletal system and confirm the preliminary diagnosis. Gaining access to the most detailed health information refines the chiropractic care you receive so that it is tailored to you and your individual goals.
