What To Expect On Your First Visit In Minnetonka MN

Chiropractic Minnetonka MN What To Expect

It’s completely normal to feel a little nervous about your first chiropractic experience, so we wanted to share more about how fun we made your first visit to our Minnetonka MN chiropractic clinic.

Arrival & Paperwork

Our team will welcome you and make sure that you are all set for your appointment. It’s a good idea to come a little early if you have not filled out your paperwork ahead of time. You will receive an email from our team to complete the intake paperwork as soon as you book your appointment. This can be done prior to your first visit to save yourself about 15 minutes in the office on your first visit. If you would like us to check on your insurance, please bring in your card and we will call over to them directly to verify your out of network chiropractic benefits.

Tour The Office In Minnetonka MN

Once your paperwork is complete, our team will show you the office! We have a family-friendly office, with an engaging front room filled with legos, coloring, and a hydration station. You will also see our “Healing Happens Here” wall which is full of amazing stories and transformations that people have experienced here.


During the consultation, you will sit down with one of the doctors and talk about your main health concerns, what may be causing your health concerns on a deeper and neurological level, and how it is affecting your life. This is where you can get all of your initial questions answered and have a better understanding of how Chiropractic care can benefit your health.

Initial Assessment

We use INSiGHT scans to assess the function of your nervous system. The technology comprises Heart Rate Variability, Surface EMG, and Thermography.

We also do a proprioceptive test to further examine how your brain is communicating with your body.

The tech is non-invasive and measures different aspects of your nervous system. It allows us to get a baseline of how your body is adapting to stress, and how well your nerves are communicating to your muscles, organs, glands, and tissue.

  1. The first test is surface electromyography which shows us exactly where your body is storing stress and if your nervous system is calm and organized or more disorganized and chaotic.
  2. Thermography shows us areas of inflammation in the body.
  3. Heart rate variability gives us a bird’s eye view of how your nervous system is functioning overall. We want to know if your body has been running with your foot on the gas (sympathetic = fight/flight), or if your body’s exhausted and trying to operate with the foot stuck on the brake.

The scans are used on all our practice members, even kids and babies to accurately detect dysfunction, beyond what you may be feeling or experiencing symptomatically.

We want to gather as much information about what is going on so we can give you the most effective recommendations to help your body heal.

This unique approach is why so many moms and dads seek out our care.

Doctor Report

Your next visit is where we break everything down! We want to give you an in-depth look into what the root cause of your health concerns is. Many of our patients find validation in these scans, which empower them by revealing areas for improvement. Next, we’ll discuss specific chiropractic recommendations tailored to your needs.

First Adjustment

The best part! Your first neurological chiropractic adjustment! The way we help and facilitate the healing process is by performing a gentle, neurological adjustment that allows the body and brain to communicate the way they should and allow the brain to shift out of a chronic fight or flight state and into the rest, digest, growth, and healing state.

With these adjustments, there is no twisting, popping, or cracking because we’re really working with the body and nervous system and not against it. We’re the only practice in the southwest metro area that utilizes this technique and really is why we see such great results.
