Upon entering our office, you will be warmly greeted by a member of our staff. The Balanced Atlas strives to be a Green and Eco-friendly healthcare facility. We utilize Electronic Health Records and therefore provide our New Patients the ability to complete their intake forms online, and submit them to our database via our encrypted, HIPPA compliant online portal. This cuts down on wait times and allows you the freedom to complete your paperwork at your own pace. If you prefer to print out your forms or want to fill them out in the office, no problem. We can easily scan them into our system and recycle the paper.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Harrison to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Harrison to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine if NUCCA Chiropractic is the right option for you.
Your first visit is extremely important and we have set aside the proper time so that you will not feel rushed through the process. You will have plenty of one on one time with Dr. Harrison to discuss any health concerns and questions. We ask that you allow approximately 1 hour for your first visit at The Balanced Atlas.
After your consultation, Dr. Harrison will perform a complete NUCCA Chiropractic examination. This examination will evaluate your postural body alignment. You can have subluxations (misalignments) and not even know it. Like the early stages of tooth decay or cancer, subluxations can be present before warning signs appear. Body imbalance is determined by leg length disparity, postural measurements performed on an instrument called an Anatometer, bi-lateral weight difference and computerized Thermographic and EMG analysis. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
To not see is to guess, and we will not guess when it comes to your health. The work we do is very precise and we must measure what we have done to ensure it is effective, that is the key behind the success of NUCCA in patients holding adjustments for up to years at a time. Our clinic uses the latest technology in advanced digital X-ray. These digital images help us rule out more serious conditions and assist us in developing the most effective care plan for you. We only take those views which are necessary for quality care. Most people are amazed once they see their images and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Dr. Harrison will specifically design a treatment plan to get you the best results in the shortest amount of time and for the least amount of money depending on your specific circumstances and case. Our job is to offer you the very best care and we stand ready to help all patients, regardless of their health goals. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
In your Report of Findings, Dr. Harrison will answer the three most common and important questions that our patients have:
Can you help me?
What do you recommend that I do to get better?
How much is it going to cost?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, your doctor will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If we believe we can help you, we will recommend care and a wellness program.
The precise and gentle nature of the NUCCA spinal correction requires NO SNAPPING, POPPING OR TWISTING OF THE NECK OR BACK. The adjustment is safe and effective. NUCCA Chiropractic gently restores the skull, spine and hips back to its proper position. The NUCCA adjustment is designed to be gentle. Instead of forcefully manipulating joints, his takes pressure off the nerves and allows the body to return to its natural, healthy state
No. As you know, to open a lock you need the correct combination. It has been estimated that over 10,000 combinations exist in the misalignment between the head and upper cervical spine. Each combination requires a different, precise adjustment which is determined from the analysis of the patient’s x-rays. The foundation of the NUCCA technique is our precise x-ray analysis, using physics and mechanics is used to calculate a formula for each spinal correction. Each formula is calculated for that individual patient, no two spinal corrections are alike.
