Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our  patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Dereck Armin to discuss your low back/spinal problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Dereck Armin to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how spinal decompression can meet your goals.


After your consultation, Dr. Dereck Armin will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.

MRI/X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may do MRI scans/X-rays as well. MRI/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 MRI/X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their spinal disc/stenosis/degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Dereck Armin will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Dereck Armin will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Dereck Armin  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Typically your treatments begin on the second visit. This may include spinal decompression, cold laser, spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue work.

Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a  home based 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 home based plan to get you better in the shortest possible time.
