NEW Patients start Your Journey

Is creating a great first chiropractic visit possible? We think so.

On your first chiropractic visit you can expect us to listen. You can expect us to conduct a thorough diagnosis. And before any treatments ever begin, you can expect Dr. Dave and Dr. Kate to help you understand where you are and the path that lay ahead of you.

Many times our patients’ experience with medical care has left them with the experience that their experience, their story, and even what they feel in their own body has nothing to do with their diagnosis and the treatment that they need. At Draeger Chiropractic, we understand that nothing could be farther from the truth. We have built our process around understanding your experience.

First chiropractic visit

Your First Chiropractic Visit


On your first visit to our office in Eagle River you will be welcomed as a member of our family and our receptionist will greet you with a warm smile. You will then be asked to fill out our required forms which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition.

Dr. David Draeger will then talk with you and ask you some specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If we can help you, we will let you know. If we cannot help you, you will be referred to the appropriate specialist who can. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


After a thorough consultation in our Eagle River office with the doctor, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition to better help you. If necessary, the doctor may take X-rays or refer you for additional testing procedures.

X-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. The need for X-ray is considered on a case-by-case basis. Our equipment is state of the art for imaging.

Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and make recommendations for treatment.


Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our special, gentle yet effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.

We offer everyone a free no obligation consultation. For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, flexible payment programs can be arranged.
