What To Expect the First Visit

What To Expect the First Visit

Starting a new journey

It is our goal to make your first visit to our office a pleasant experience.  Our office staff will answer any questions you may have prior to your visit.  We ask that you bring your completed New Patient Information, any recent lab work and any supplements and/or medications you are currently using.

During your consultation, the doctor will review your history and discuss with you our philosophical  approach to health. They will also ask you about your expectations and priorities for the work you will do together in restoring your health.

Depending on your needs, an adjustment may be needed during your visit. If this is necessary, the doctor will explain the technique as it is happening, so you are comfortable with the process.   Applied Kinesiology, also known as muscle testing, may be performed to help indicate where you need support and what diet/supplements may work best for you.

The doctor might find it necessary to order additional lab work, which may give us a better insight to your health needs. We have several labs we use and your options will be explained to you in detail.

Once we have gathered all of the necessary information, your doctor will discuss their thoughts on the development and progression of your health.  Your doctor will educate and instruct all wellness plans, so you may fully understand the philosophy of healing, and how the doctor intends to help you get back to the vibrant health you deserve.

We look forward to meeting and working with you on your path to healthful success.

"What our patients are saying"
  • I strongly recommend Lyss Chiropractic. The entire staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. The doctors are very committed to providing high quality care to all of their patients. My family is extremely grateful for everything we have learned about health and wellness from both Dr. Lyss and Dr. Irvine and for the great care they have provided to all of us.

  • Dr. Irvine is exceptionally compassionate and truly cares about the well-being of her patients. Dr. Irvine takes the time to really listen to her patients as they describe their symptoms. Dr. Irvine uses unique techniques to carefully adjust her patients who suffer from chronic pain or simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • After years of horseback riding, my body was screaming (neck and back). I finally went to a chiropractor and found the experience rough and the adjustments never holding. Then a friend recommended Dr. Jennifer Irvine. What a different experience! From the first adjustment everything was different. I felt like I had a new body and eight years later I’m still coming back a very happy patient.

  • I consider myself most privileged to have been under the watchful care of Dr. Jennifer Irvine and Dr. Roger Lyss since the spring of 2007. I had come to them at a critical time when I was experiencing what Dr. Jen so aptly referred to as “a healing crisis”. My weight was dangerously low and unable to eat most foods because of violent allergic reactions. I was literally wasting away. I know that without their intervention, I most likely would not have survived. Both have listened carefully, responded compassionately and guided me gently through critical years of recovery. I am most grateful for their commitment to even the most challenging patients. I believe Dr. Jen and Dr. Lyss to be God’s provision for me and I continue to be blessed by their practice, experiencing ever increasing strength and wellbeing and once again, I am able to enjoy being involved in life! Might I add that the Lyss Chiropractic support staff also graciously assists in making even the most difficult times most pleasant.

  • My name is Chris Whitcraft and I have been a patient of Dr. Lyss since 2006. I was a professional super cross athlete that relied on treatment from Dr. Lyss, due in part to the impact and injury my body experienced on a regular basis. I have endured many physical hardships through my career in which I firmly believe if it weren’t for Dr. Lyss, I would not be here walking in the condition I am. I have been taken care of for alignments, broken bones, concussions, and a temporary paralysis that I was not supposed to recover from. I firmly believe Lyss Chiropractic is a strong reason why I can walk today. There were ailments I endured that only Dr. Lyss was able to crack. I have an eight vertebra fusion that I only trust Dr. Lyss to alleviate the daily pain I endure. I even have a 5 month old baby girl who sees Dr. Lyss and he eases the tension and fussiness I see her experience. The knowledge from Dr. Lyss is unmatchable and when you combine the chiropractic adjustments with the supplemental assistance offered, I don’t think you will find this anywhere else. The entire staff treats you like family. There is no other doctor I would recommend aside from Lyss Chiropractic.
