What to Expect

Welcome mat

You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door.

As a wellness practice, our hope is to help the families of Hainesport get well and stay well. Our husband and wife team has created a caring, serene atmosphere and place of healing. You’ll often work with Dr. Kirk’s wife, Barbara, who handles scheduling, insurance and some therapies in the office.

We welcome you to enjoy a cup of tea or a refreshing glass of water when you arrive. Our television features inspirational quotes and tips and techniques as food for thought. When you’re ready, we’ll get started.

Your First Visit

Our friendly staff will greet you when you arrive and walk you through your visit. They’ll review your paperwork with you, which we’ll email to you to complete in the convenience of your home before your visit. They’ll answer any questions you may have now and along the way.

Dr. Kirk will review your paperwork before sitting down with you for a consultation. This thorough consultation will review your current healthy history to get a broad-based understanding of your current health.

Next, he’ll go through chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological examination to determine the cause of your problem and if any other tests are necessary. If X-rays or other advanced testing are needed, we will refer out for them. Depending on your situation, we may treat you on this visit or wait until we get additional testing results back.

Your Second Visit

We’ll review a thorough report of findings where we’ll teach you about your health and review your examination. We’ll also discuss how we can assist you in accomplishing your goals.

At this point, we’ll provide you with a care plan keeping your goals in mind. We’ll also begin care on this visit.

Regular Visits

A typical visit to our office includes a positive greeting and light-hearted catch-up as we believe it’s important to focus on the positive in life. We’ll talk about any changes in your health that may have occurred since we last saw you. We’ll complete an evaluation to recheck your musculoskeletal health and get you started with appropriate rehabilitative therapies before an adjustment. After your treatment, we’ll provide or review some at-home exercises for you to do.

We’ll also review your lifestyle and discuss some activities that might benefit your health. Dr. Kirk will go over sleep postures and proper bending and lifting. Spend a lot of time in a chair while working? We’ll discuss ways to help set up your computer workstation to reduce the amount of repetitive stress you’re experiencing from sitting for long periods of time. We want to give you as many tips, tools and techniques to care for yourself to help you stay healthy longer.

We’ll help you revitalize your health naturally! Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
