Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Your first visit will begin with a warm smile and personal greeting! Our front desk and chiropractic assistants will greet you by first name unless otherwise requested. We have provided our new patient forms in the New Patient Center for your convenience.

This paperwork is our first insight to your overall health and spinal conditions and is vital to initiating your care. Please provide us with the best phone numbers and contact information so we may reach you to discuss your care. We ask that you plan to be in our office a total of two hours for your first in office visit.

If for some reason you will not be able to make your appointment, we request you notify us 12 hours in advance, so that another person in need of the doctor's time may be seen.

Consultation and Examination

The doctor will meet with you for a one-on-one consultation and examination of your spine and health status. We allot one hour for a face-to-face consultation and evaluation with Dr. Carmen Johanning or Dr. Cally Parks. The doctors schedules this time to focus entirely on you and your concerns. During this hour, she will take a thorough history and perform orthopedic, neurological, chiropractic and radiographic evaluations. The goal of this visit is to gather the needed information to determine the best care for your healthcare goals.

Radiographic Evaluation

Depending on your specific complaints and health history, we may evaluate your spine radiographically. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you and allow us to see early changes in your spinal condition that have not yet created a painful condition. Often times we are able to locate the cause of your complaint AND identify spinal locations that have the potential to create more serious health concerns in the future. We will explain to you how the spine works and how the results of your examinations relate to your health. Most people are amazed once they see the condition of their spine on X-rays. Usually after the initial examination, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
On your initial visit, the doctors will briefly review their findings with you. After the doctors have had time to study and evaluate the information gathered on your first visit, they will schedule a more in depth explanation with you (Report of Findings).

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I can't believe how professional, efficient, and effective the entire staff is at CHAWC. I am out and on my way to work in a short time, while achieving maximum results."
    Jodie Richmond, VA
  • "I have suffered from lower back and sciatica pain for over two years now. Prior to my visit to this practice, I have been x-rayed, tested, MRI, countless specialists visits and not to mention the costs associated with all of that. I have been in chiropractors' offices before and they usually adjust my back and the pain decrease for a day or two but never goes away. Dr. Cally was thorough, knowledgeable in her specialty, and kind. Although, I was skeptical at first but, Dr. Cally's knowledge put me at ease. Needless to say, now I am pain free. Not only she is good with her patients but once you walk-in that office you will feel the good vibe from her staff (happy employee means happy customer), which tells me she is treating her staff good as well. Thank you, Dr. Cally for all you do. You and your practice are hard to find these days. Keep up the good work."
    Dr. Beygatt, PhD
  • "Dr. Jo has been such a blessing and resource for my health and my back. I have been doing chiropractic for about 15 years, and Dr. Jo's treatments and home therapies have seriously changed my life and my back and neck in the past year. I am in awe of how much better I feel overall and so appreciate their dedication to my health and well-being!"
  • "Dr. Cally Parks has so greatly impacted my overall well being! Her thorough and compassionate care has lead me to feeling my best. I highly recommend her to anyone with any back or hip pain."
  • "I can't say enough good things about Dr. Jo and the rest of the staff. I've never enjoyed a medical treatment so much. Every time I come in, I feel like I'm seeing good friends. Chiropractic Care has changed my life for the better, and I believe the philosophy at CHAWC has been key to my success. I have recommended CHAWC to many and will continue to do so!"
  • "I am very impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of Drs. in this clinic. My quality of life has improved drastically and I am able to do things now that I have not in a few years. Dr. Cally and Dr. Jo have made a difference for me. Laura and Julie are so welcoming, as well as willing to work with your schedule so you can reach your health goals. Thank you Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center!!!"
