What to Expect at Congruent Life Chiropractic

Communicate and Connect

At Congruent Life Chiropractic your chiropractic care isn’t just a visit; it’s an experience. Dr. Mike will take the time to get to know you and your beliefs so that he can better understand why your body is acting the way it is. The body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism. The function of the spine goes way beyond providing protection for your nervous system. It is a neurospinal organ that is used to perceive body and position sense in order to properly coordinate every cell and function in the body. Your care plan will be designed to fit your specific needs.

Day One

Each visit with Dr. Mike builds on the next.

Before your first visit there will be intake paperwork available online to fill out and bring with you. Your history will be thoroughly reviewed, and you will be educated on the great benefits that chiropractic care has to offer. You will receive a Subluxation Station scan that will tell Dr. Mike exactly how your nervous system is functioning.

Dr. Mike utilizes three different assessment technologies:


Measures temperature and balances from side to side . The temperatures will be equal if the nervous system is functioning properly. If the sides are uneven then there is something wrong in that area of the spine.

Electromyography (EMG)

Measures how much energy is running through the muscles and will let Dr. Mike know how much noise the brain is experiencing. He will be able to assess the stressed state of the person overall.

Heart Rate Variability

Measures the general adaptive potential of the patient so Dr. Mike can assess how well they are adapting to all the different stressors in their environment.

These three assessments will give him a COREscore™ that will predict how well your body is functioning and how healthy you are. The score gives us a measureable outcome for assessing health. You will receive the scans every 12 visits until you reach vitality and wellness care. At that point, you will receive the scan series every 12 weeks or every 12 months depending if anything new has come up in your life.

Please allow 45-60 minutes for your first appointment.

Day Two

Your second visit will begin with a review of findings where Dr. Mike will explain in detail the results of your assessments. It is essential that you play an active role in your health, and this is a great time to ask questions and get details about what is best for your body based on Dr. Mike’s findings.

He will explain to you the way our bodies react to stressors and will show you the areas of your spine that are affected and how that relates to the symptoms you are having. Once you commit to care, you will receive your first adjustment. Allow 30 minutes for your second visit.
