What forms do I need to fill out?
When you schedule your initial evaluation, you will receive an email with a link to OnPatient, our online patient portal. Once you create an account you can click the “Check-in Now” button to fill out the initial paperwork online. This will save time during your first visit so we can focus more on treatment.
What should I bring?
For your initial visit we ask that you bring your insurance card (if applicable) and a credit card to put on file. Also, you may bring a change of clothes (see FAQ What should I wear?).
Where to park?
All of our office locations are located inside other gyms or businesses. You will not see a Team Elite Chiropractic sign on the buildings. When parking please follow the directions below:
Scripps Ranch: Located inside of the Fitness Quest 10 gym, on ground level. This is the southernmost business in the strip mall (not the upstairs location).
Downtown: Located inside of the Broadway Athletic and Swim Club. From Broadway turn South on Columbia Street into the parking structure. Use the elevator and hit the “AC” button to be brought up to the Athletic Club. Parking validation will be provided at the end of your appointment.
UTC: Located inside of the Campus Pointe Gym. From Campus Point Drive, follow the blue signs for “Water and Sports PT” all the way around the campus until you hit a dead end. Park in any of the available spots and then head down the large set of stairs to the gym. Please press the button by the main entrance to be let in.
La Jolla: Located inside of Livkraft (right next to The Cottage). It is street parking only. Please give yourself ample time to find a parking spot.
What to expect?
During your initial evaluation we will go over your previous health history, perform a thorough movement assessment and orthopedic examination, provide any chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and rehabilitative corrective exercises necessary based on your presentation, and develop a treatment plan to follow moving forward.
During follow-up visits we will dive into your treatment plan incorporating chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and rehabilitative corrective exercises.
What should I wear?
We recommend that you wear athletic, non-bulky clothing. If you have a specific area for treatment, please wear accommodating clothes (e.g., wear shorts for knee / hamstring issues). All facilities have locker rooms for changing. If possible, please change prior to your appointment in order to maximize treatment time.
Is chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness, or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise or massage, typically fading within 24 hours. We recommend staying well hydrated to minimize the potential muscle soreness.
Is it safe for children?
Yes, chiropractic is safe and beneficial for children. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness, or discomfort.
What is the popping sound when a joint is adjusted?
An adjustment of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved.
