New Patients

Columbia Basin Chiropractic provides non-invasive medical treatment throughout Washington and Alaska, in order to alleviate pain and promote wellness. Our patients receive non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, physical therapy, trigger point therapy, nutritional counseling, and migraine treatment.  Based out of both Kennewick Washington, Columbia Basin Chiropractic offers residents of Washington and Alaska chronic pain management, among other non-invasive medical solutions.

In order to create a safe and effective treatment plan that addresses the root of the problem instead of simply treating symptoms, we provide each patient with a thorough examination and accurate diagnostic assessment. If you are among our new patients in Kennewick Washington, it’s a good idea to  print the appropriate forms from our website, in order to fill them out ahead of time, and save you time during the initial appointment.

At Columbia Basin Chiropractic, insurance coverage is something on which we work together with you, because we want to make sure your treatment is covered. PMC works with a number of insurance providers, and strives to make the process as easy as possible for our patients. For those without insurance, we’ll still help you reach your wellness goals. We offer reasonable financial arrangements, and your initial consultation is free, so come and talk with us, to see how we can help you get the treatment you need.

How to Prepare

Please wear comfortable clothes that you can bend and move in. Feel free to arrive 10-15 minutes earlier than your appointment so there’s time to fill out paperwork about your medical history, insurance coverage and what brought you in.

Usually, we use a one-visit process where our doctors may adjust you on your first visit. However, in severe cases, we may need to gather additional information such as outside MRIs, etc. to determine the best care plan for you.

New to chiropractic care?

No problem. We have interactive TVs with PowerPoint presentations to explain how chiropractic care works. We also send out periodic emails, newsletters and update our blog to educate and share information with you. We even have talks in local libraries, too.

Your First Visit

After doing paperwork, we’ll carry out a general assessment, taking your vital information such as blood pressure, weight and height. This gives us a better idea of where your health stands today and is a great reference point to compare to later on.

Then it’s time to meet your chiropractor. They’ll sit down with you and review your case through a brief consultation for about 15 minutes. If you decide to do an examination, we’ll carry out a spinal exam focusing on the area of your discomfort. (Your consultation is complementary if you decide not to proceed with care.)

If you think chiropractic care is right for you, it’s time for an adjustment.

Depending on your situation, we’ll explain to you what’s going on and proceed with an examination if needed. You’ll be treated or examined in a private room to ensure your comfort and privacy. After the examination, if X-rays are needed we’ll discuss why and where we would take the X-rays. We’ll then discuss what we found and what we can do to help.

Routine Visits

Regular visits last around 30 to 45 minutes. Once you sign in, you’ll be taken back to the private adjusting room and relax for a few minutes before your doctor comes in for a review.

Then they’ll give you an adjustment and discuss your progress to make sure you’re on track.

Doing rehab with us? If you needed a therapy, you’ll be taken to the rehabilitation therapy room, usually before seeing your doctor. The therapies help relieve your pain using Decompression Traction Therapy, Braincore Therapy, Massage Therapy or even strengthening exercises.
