New Patient Center

Welcome to Hanks Chiropractic Center.  We look forward to welcoming you to our practice.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance.

We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

If you have any questions, we would love the opportunity to answer them. Call us today!

Getting Started with Chiropractic

Welcome! Dr. Hanks and his staff are friendly, giving, and maintain a fun, family-friendly environment for his practice. “We are here to teach you about chiropractic and how it can help your body heal itself, bringing you to better health.”

If you are ready to move forward with chiropractic care, let’s talk about your first visit.


Your First Visit to Hanks Chiropractic Center

When you arrive on the first day, you will be greeted and asked to complete your new patient paperwork. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. We have also made the paperwork available here, so you can feel free to complete it at home if you prefer.

Upon completion of your paperwork, one of our chiropractic team will take your vital signs in preparation for the doctor’s examination.

The Initial Exam

The doctor will conduct an exam which will assess your chiropractic, neurological, and orthopedic health. He will check your posture to see how evenly your weight is distributed (which can reveal anything that is out of alignment.) He will check your range of motion, feel for anything that might be out of alignment, and listen carefully to your concerns and questions.

“We are very thorough, so we use all the information we can to tailor a care plan that is right for you and your health-related symptoms.”

Let’s Talk About You…

We listen to you, so we can help get you on the correct path to wellness. But, we also want to make sure we give you the information you need to make important decisions about your care.

“Through words and pictures, your symptoms will be reviewed in order to establish the cause of your pain. The doctor may also order X-rays to reveal more information needed to assess your condition.”

We will also discuss the cost of your care. We know no one likes to talk about money, but we want you to know up front how much your care will cost and what your options are for making it as affordable as possible.

Beginning Your Care Plan

During this first visit, the doctor will briefly review the X-rays with you and will describe the care plan they think will work best for your condition. At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.

You will leave your first appointment with a packet of care instructions and will return the following day so the doctor can confirm his report of findings in more detail, and you can begin your journey to health.

A Little Bit More About Us

We think you will find our office to be comfortable and welcoming. Our treatment areas are somewhat open, but our exam rooms are closed for your privacy.

Your first visit will last about 40-45 minutes if you complete your paperwork in advance, or about 45-60 minutes if you prefer to complete it here in our office.

We look forward to being a part of your care. Please call our Lake Highlands office at if you have any questions.
