Welcome to The Tonal Spine
how to begin
We want to help make this process as easy and wonderful as it can be. If you are coming to the office for the first time, your first visit will last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. We will review your history, perform an evaluation, and if necessary, refer you for x-rays. On your second visit, we will discuss with you how we can help you and explain every process.
Please call 423-405-3330 to make your new patient appointment or click the link below to schedule online.
We ask that you bring any recent x-rays, MRIs, or CT Scans that are related to any spinal problems you may be suffering from. Please download the forms in the next section and fill them out to the best of your knowledge. All history is helpful in this assessment. Please arrive to the exam 15 minutes early so that we can process your paperwork. The care in our office is different than many doctor’s offices. One of the ways we are different is that we almost always run on time. So your early arrival can ensure that other patients stay on time as well. Thank you for your consideration.

First, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
We use state of the art technology to assess the state of your spine and nervous system. After your consultation, the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your spinal health. Some of the tests we utilize are:
Bilateral Scales: This measures if there is an imbalance in your balancing mechanisms and if either side of your brain is out of balance with the other side)
Computerized postural analysis
Infrared Thermography: This process in the exam indicates and measures levels of inflammation in the nerves and if the nerve is under insult, identifies areas with poor autonomic regulation, Measures spinal nerve control of organs and glands. Measures how stress patterns are changing.)
Neuro-Core Surface EMG: (Pinpoints overactive and exhausted neuromuscular areas)
HRV/Heart Rate Variability: Measures adaptability to stress Scans heart rate, temperature and anxiety simultaneously.
HRV testing is lead indicator for stress, heart disease, & stroke
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for x-rays. X-rays can help us develop the most effective care plan for you and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
We do not automatically x-ray every patient.
Follow Up Appointment
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit, usually within a week or as your schedule allows. During this follow-up visit, the doctor will give you a detailed report on your spine and answer questions like:
Can we help you?
How often do you need to come in?
What will my care cost?
Receiving Care In Our Office
