Your First Visit
Our providers frequently work together to best address a patient’s needs. A good place to start is to see one of our Doctors who may recommend Dana for Massage or Christine for Acupuncture. Alternatively, if you are strictly looking for acupuncture, you may book directly with Christine (or Dana for massage). If you are unsure of who to see contact us and and we will point you in the right direction.

New Upright Health patients begin their first visit with a complete health history review, a comprehensive examination of the issue that brought you in, as well as exploration for any underlying joint restrictions or muscular imbalances you may not be aware of. x-rays are not typical, but may be necessary.
Your provider will keep an open dialog with you about his findings, your past care experiences and what treatments are recommended for your current condition(s). With your consensus, your provider will likely administer your first treatment; this could be a spinal or extremity manipulation, more commonly known as an “adjustment” and/or some type of soft tissue technique indicated to your care needs. At-home therapies may be recommended to speed up recovery, such as kinesiology taping, stretching, foam rolling and micro-exercises.
You and your provider will mutually agree on the next steps in your treatment plan, with the expectation that changes will be made based on how your body responds – or doesn’t respond. Our ultimate goal is to develop a routine that gets – and keeps – you out of pain and in overall good health. You can expect your first visit to take approximately 45 minutes and to cost $105.
What to Wear
For your initial visit, it is best to wear lose-fitting clothes that do not restrict your body’s natural range of motion. We encourage females to wear a sports bra and tank top, rather than under-wire support. Sweat pants or shorts and a t-shirt work well for males. Unless your provider instructs you otherwise, your normal attire should be sufficient for future visits.
All new patients must complete a New Patient Intake form. When scheduling online for the first time, this intake form will be emailed to you. If scheduling by phone, you can download the intake below to fill out ahead of time, or come to your appointment a 10 minutes early do complete it in office.
If you have any additional questions or concerns about your visit, please don’t hesitate to call our office and speak directly to an Upright Health provider. You can also read what some of our patients are saying about us here.
