Getting Started with Care

At WestEnd Spine and Rehab, we do our best to make getting started with care as convenient and streamlined as possible. When you book your first appointment, we will send you a link so you can complete your intake forms online and submit them directly to our office. There are no forms for you to print out or bring with you.

We ask that you wear comfortable clothes that you can move around in, and bring your ID and insurance card. We are in-network with most insurance, and are a participating provider with Medicare. We will work with your insurance company to help you verify coverage and your claims process.

Your First Visit

Before you come in, Dr. Hagen will review the forms that you submitted online. Then he’ll chat with you about your health history and your current concerns or complaints. He’s a very good listener, and he’ll take the time to get as much information as needed to help him understand your condition.

Next, he’ll conduct a very thorough exam, which will consist of the following:

  • Range of motion evaluation
  • Muscle-strength testing
  • Orthopedic exam
  • Neurological exam
  • Functional movement assessment

If Dr. Hagen feels X-rays are necessary, he will refer you out for those.

Then Dr. Hagen will explain what he finds in these exams, letting you know what the problem is and what’s causing it, as well as what we need to do to correct it. If you feel ready (and we don’t need X-rays), we can begin your first treatment. The treatment will be tailored to your individual needs and will include some combination of chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue work and exercise. This visit will take about 45 minutes to an hour.

Giving You the Tools You Need

Part of our approach to care is to provide exercises for you to do at home to support your healing. Our goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible, while educating you about how you can help maintain proper range of motion and function on your own. Contact us today to learn more.
