What to Expect as a New Patient

Posture CheckOur new patient paperwork can be completed online or in person and should only take a couple minutes. Next Dr. Lane will give you a tour of the office before getting into the meat and potatoes of the appointment. Expect this appointment to take 45 minutes to an hour for adults.


You will have Dr. Lane’s undivided attention as you discuss any symptoms, concerns and goals you may have. This will give Dr. Lane a better understanding of what brought you in and how to help!


After the consultation, Dr. Lane will do his examinations. These exams will focus on finding areas of nerve interference with a variety of physical, postural, and neurological tests.


In most cases Dr. Lane will take full spine postural x-rays, unless special circumstances exist such as a pregnant woman, young children/infant. His reasoning behind it is best summed up by the following quote, “To see is to know, to not to see is to guess, and I’m not going to guess with your health!” If you have previous full spine x-rays taken within the past 12 months please inform our front desk.

First Adjustment

Depending on your condition, Dr. Lane may adjust you right away or wait until he gets clarification on any of your exam/x-ray findings.

Your Second Visit

On your second visit Dr. Lane will go through the exams and x-rays done at the first visit and give you his recommendations for care before getting you adjusted.

Ongoing Visits: What to Expect

With our approach, you won’t receive the same adjustments at every visit. Dr. Lane will assess your spine and nervous system at each appointment and apply only the adjustment(s) your body needs. There are no random adjustments or guesswork with our method.

Paying for Care

We are a cash practice. We accept cash, most major credit cards, HSAs and FSAs. If you would like to utilize your insurance benefits we can provide you with a superbill you may send in to get reimbursed directly from your insurance provider.
