Your First Visit

At Colopy Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Arlington, Texas, Dr. Joe Colopy and his staff are dedicated to making every part of your experience, including your very first visit, as comfortable and seamless as possible.
Here’s what you can expect during your first visit:

Patient Forms

When you come in, the receptionist welcomes you and asks you to complete the forms found online in the New Patient Center, if you haven’t already done so. This paperwork includes your health history and information about your condition.


Next, you have a consultation with Dr. Colopy to discuss your health-related problems, your concerns, and your treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Colopy to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations so that he can determine how chiropractic care can help you meet your goals.


After your consultation, Dr. Colopy performs a complete chiropractic examination. In addition to the standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations, he tests your reflexes and flexibility. Dr. Colopy never does anything without your consent, and you can ask questions at any time during the examination.


Depending on your condition, X-rays may be taken as well. These help Dr. Colopy develop the most effective treatment plan and alert him of any serious spinal conditions.

Report of Findings

After reviewing your health history and goals and after examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Colopy gives you a detailed report of all his findings and answers any questions you may have, including:

  • How can you help me?
  • How often do I need to come in?
  • What will my treatment cost?

Dr. Colopy discusses recommendations and lets you know if your condition requires care from other providers.


At the end of the visit, you can choose whether to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or soft tissue massage. Our treatment style emphasizes interaction, and you’re welcome to express concerns about the different treatment modalities at any time.

Wellness Program

Before you leave, Dr. Colopy suggests a customized wellness program. If you’re in pain when you first come in, this program may include applying ice or heat, avoiding certain activities or positions, and at-home exercises. The wellness team can also work with you to create diet and exercise routines to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a positive mental state.
