New Patients

Before Your First Visit

Before your initial consultation, you will complete the new patient form which includes your:

  • Patient Information and History Form,

  • An Informed Consent Form,

  • HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, and

  • The Financial Policy Agreement. 

Depending on your chiropractic needs, you may also be asked to complete the Pediatric History Form, Neck Questionnaire, Back Questionnaire, Headache Questionnaire, and Spinal Decompression Informed Consent

Your First Visit

During your new patient consultation, Dr. Nicole and you:

  1. Review your medical and family history,  She will focus on current condition, ailments, pain, and limitations.

  2. Assess your areas of concern through a full neurological and orthopedic exam with emphasis on area of concern.

  3. Discuss the results of the exam and evaluate appropriate chiropractic techniques, and

  4. Ultimately determine whether or not you are a good candidate for chiropractic care.

Finally, if agreed, Dr. Knapp will perform the first chiropractic adjustment.

Adjustment Styles

Depending on your history, conditions, and preferences, the following techniques and services may be appropriate

  • Low Force Activator – Ideal for children, osteoporotic patients, elderly, and more timid patients

  • Thompson Technique (Drop Table) – Ideal for children, osteoporotic, elderly, and more timid patients

  • Gonstead Diversified (Manual Adjusting) – Ideal for all patients

  • Spinal Decompression (Traction) – Ideal for low back pain, non-surgical alternative to disc herniation/disc bulges, sciatica

  • Webster Technique – A specific chiropractic analysis and accompanying adjustment to reduce the effects of pelvic misalignment. Webster Technique is a certification I have received and now ALL chiropractors have this.

What to Expect Afterwards

After the first adjustment you may experience one of these scenarios:

  1. No change at all

  2. Immediate feeling of relief and relaxation

  3. Increase in symptoms/discomfort or a change of the way you were feeling prior to the adjustment.

What you are feeling is much the same as the muscle soreness you experience after exercising. This is NOT a reason for concern! It is merely the result of your spine moving and becoming correctly aligned. With time and each subsequent adjustment your body will become accustomed to the new change.

Before Your Second Visit

Dr. Knapp will create a customized schedule and optimal health plan with you.


You will review the health plan and choose what works best for you. Continual wellness visits ensure optimal health.


Dr. Knapp will continue to work with her patients focusing on other areas of discomfort and pain.

“Dr. Knapp was wonderful. Very informative and professional. Went in not being able to stand up straight and can now walk better. Still some work to do, but I'm excited to go back now for further improvements on my back.”
