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.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Chappy Wood to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Chappy Wood to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Chappy Wood 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.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. 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 X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Chappy Wood 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. Chappy Wood will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition requires care with other providers.  Dr. Chappy Wood  will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness 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 wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had recently been experiencing loss of power and strength on my bike and was recommended to Chappy Wood, D.C. by other cyclists. I had been to other doctors but they were unable to fix my particular problem. He was able to target my problem areas using the cold laser treatment. After every visit I feel I have really addressed the problems I have come in for, and I would highly recommend him if you’re not getting results with other forms of treatment."

  • "Dr. Chappy Wood, D.C. has been an essential part of my training and recovery process as a professional cyclist. Training here in Marin is hard on my body, and he is able to fix all my nagging problems that cycling has caused on my body. Being a cyclist himself has really helped him to understand my specific needs. If you are a cyclist with any type of injury or any problem or pain associated with cycling then he is the man to see."
