New Practice Members

You’ll find that Discover Chiropractic is a relaxed, friendly and practice member-oriented place. We keep a calming, soothing environment that helps you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. Your needs are different than anyone else’s, and your care will be unique to you.

The paperwork we ask our new practice members to fill out can be found on our website and brought in with you completed.


Your First Visit

You’ll sit down with Dr. Kawa to discuss your concerns. If we think chiropractic can help you, we’ll get started with an examination. If not, we’ll refer you to the appropriate health care professional.

The thorough examination process involves state-of-the-art technology such as the Insight™ Subluxation Station and the ProAdjuster™ spine scanner to locate the cause of your problem. Further testing will reveal posture imbalances and misalignments in your spine. You’ll be given a chiropractic adjustment and be scheduled back for a second appointment.

Your Second Visit

When you return, Dr. Kawa will give you a heart wave variability test, a second adjustment and offer you some advice. You’ll learn how to properly perform the activities of daily living such as sitting, standing, bending and sleeping, complete with videos so that you can follow along with them. We want you to have all the information you need to make sure you don’t further aggravate your condition and speed your healing.

If decompression is needed, we’ll start it at this appointment.

Your Third Visit

You’ll be adjusted, and we’ll go over any questions you had about the videos showing activities of daily living. We’ll do posture exercises with you and teach you how to stabilize your neck, bringing your head and shoulders into the proper position. You’ll also receive an adjustment.

Following Up

At each appointment, Dr. Kawa will check for misalignments and tension in the spine and give another of your chiropractic adjustments. Nearly every practice member will receive an exercise and rehabilitation program based on posture correction and core stabilization. You’ll do these exercises for the first 10-12 visits.

Though pain may diminish quickly, it doesn’t mean your body has corrected the unhealthy patterns it’s used to. We’ll use objective tests to show your improvement as you progress with care. Once we’ve reached maximum correction, we’ll talk to you about wellness care that can help ensure your body stays healthy.

Same-day appointments are available. Contact us to book your time!
