Patient Forms

Upon your arrival at our office, Dr. Mortenson will welcome you to the clinic. He will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center on this website. Please download and complete the New Patient Health History Form prior to your visit. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Brett Mortenson will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your body's movement patterns to uncover any asymmetries or imbalances. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may request X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Brett Mortenson will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays (if ordered), Dr. Mortenson will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Mortenson will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue therapy. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, Dr. Mortenson will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.

  • "I couldn't be happier with my experience with Brett. He is very personable and will work with you to find the perfect level of care that you need. After years of back, neck, and shoulder pain, I feel much better and I am able to do the things I love comfortably. Brett worked with my schedule and budget to get me the care that I needed. I would recommend Motion Lab to anyone and everyone."

  • "I am a marathon runner and running coach. When I began having problems with my hips and feet, I knew it was an alignment issue. I went to Motion Lab Chiropractic and got an adjustment done by Brett Mortenson. He was very thorough and made the necessary adjustments. The results were immediate. No.more.pain. at. all! It was so dramatic, I referred one of my students to him for a consultation and adjustment. Her results were also dramatic- No more pain while running. 5 stars"

He takes his time and ensures that I have a complete experience starting from muscle stim, tissue manipulation, adjustment, and guidance on how to strengthen my body with specific exercises to return me to optimum health. After 20 years of pain, I'm finally able to self manage flare ups and the confidence in my lower back has returned."
