New Patients at Carlisle Family Chiropractic Clinic

If you’re visiting with us for the first time, we’d like you to know exactly what to expect. We want to provide you with a great experience and will make sure that you feel welcome and supported every step of the way. Don’t be surprised if you see other families also visiting, as our patients often comment on how they get a chance to “catch up with the neighbors” in our comfortable atmosphere. Our home-based office has been described as warm and inviting — we hope you think so, too!

Your First Visit

Your first visit will take approximately 30 minutes. Upon entering Carlisle Family Chiropractic Clinic, you’ll immediately be warmly greeted by one of our friendly team members, who will escort you to our reception area and give you a brief tour of the office. If you filled out the new patient online forms before your visit, you can look around and relax before meeting with Dr. Dave.


Dr. Dave believes it is critical to get to know you and your health goals to ensure that we can not only provide you with a great experience in our office, but to ensure that you get amazing results as well!

Next, Dr. Dave will invite you back to the exam room where you will sit down and go over a detailed discussion of your health-related concerns. Next, we will use state of the art technology to deliver a computerized scan image of the stress and tension held in your nervous system. This advanced technology determines whether we can help you and allows us to accurately measure your progress during your journey towards optimal healing. Once the computerized assessment is complete, Dr. Dave will complete a physical examination of your area of complaint to correlate with the previous tests. Three different technologies help to give us an accurate and objective assessment:

  • Surface EMG (a measurement of the electrical energy in spinal muscles)
  • Thermal Scan (a bilateral temperature measurement to detect inflammation)
  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV) testing (a measurement of your adaptability to stress)

Your second visit will also be about 30 minutes in length. During this appointment, Dr. Dave will deliver a report of findings, which is a thorough review of your examination and scan results. The data from your testing is also analyzed, and computerized calculations made to create your CORE Score™.

Your CORE Score™ is based on a scale of 0-100. The higher the number, the better the communication within your nervous system. Your score is invaluable in helping us to know how to begin to help you. Customized care options will be discussed & a plan of action reviewed to help you get out of pain and optimize your health.

A typical office visit is 5-10 minutes in length. With the groundwork completed, we can quickly evaluate the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you, and get you on your way. We also recognize that your time is valuable. We promise to do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.

We encourage you to bring your children in while you’re having a chiropractic adjustment. We love kids and we’re trained to keep an eye on them for you while you’re receiving your treatment. Feel relaxed in knowing that we’ll not only take good care of you but your family as well.
