1st Chiropractic Visit

On your first visit to our office

You can expect to spend approximately 45 min. to 1 hour with the doctor. Prior to your first visit, Glendive, MT chiropractors ask that you fill out our “initial visit forms” online with details regarding your health history. This saves valuable time when you have these forms filled out in advance.

COURSE OF CARE

We will discuss all your health concerns with you to help determine the best course of care. Next, we will perform a skin temperature test using an instrument called a “Temp-o-scope/Nervo-scope”. This instrument records temperature readings on both sides of the spine. We're is looking for asymmetries that show up as specific patterns along the spine demonstrating nerve irritation. The scope pinpoints the particular area/areas that likely indicate where the nerve is being irritated. The instrument is non-invasive and glides gently down the length of your back like two fingers sliding down each side of your spine.

BEGINNING CHIROPRACTIC CARE IN Glendive

Next, your chiropractor will feel for the presence of swelling, tenderness, and any abnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back (static palpation). They are also feeling for motion in the spine while moving and bending you (motion palpation) to determine how easily/difficult each segment in your spine is moving in different directions. They're also visually looking for subtle changes in your posture or gait that may indicate a problem as well.

NEXT STEPS

We’ll take an x-ray (if appropriate). The X-rays help us complete a thorough analysis of your spine.

THE X-RAYS IN THE “GONSTEAD SYSTEM”

Aside from pathology, x-rays are used to determine the best way to adjust a segment SPECIFICALLY e.g., which side of the joint to contact and thrust on and which side to stabilize, the best line-of-drive and thrust mechanism to make a specific correction. The goal is to restore FUNCTION, not necessarily straighten misalignments that may be normal for that individual.

FIRST ADJUSTMENT

After taking the necessary time to analyze your X-rays, Gonstead doctors are ready to deliver your first specific spinal adjustment. The Gonstead system was designed to be as specific and precise as possible! Great care is taken to adjust only that which is needed with the most accuracy and finesse possible.

Lastly, we will schedule your second visit to discuss our findings regarding your condition and determine a course of care.

What They Say About Us
Chiropractic Testimonial Glendive
Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for our family. We have all grown to love coming in for adjustments because we believe you truly care about us. It’s hard to find caregivers who really care about those in their care. But we know that you go the extra mile for us.
Brendan
Chiropractic Testimonial Five Glendive
I will forever be grateful to Dr. Tracy for taking me on as a patient and providing health care which is otherwise inaccessible to me in my town of Glendive, Montana. My life and health have been extended and enriched because of his care.

Chiropractic Testimonial One Glendive
BACK PAIN – I could not walk for more than half a block without sitting down and resting. I probably will never be completely healed, but most of the time, thanks to Dr. Gabbert, I am pain free.
C. P.
Chiropractic Testimonial Three Glendive
I started coming to Dr. Tracy over 20 years ago due to neck problems, headaches, back, hip, leg, and feet problems. I faithfully had my treatments on a regular basis throughout the years. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a headache. He has healed my back, hips, and leg pain, and has improved the pain in my feet.
