Your First Visit

It’s easy to feel apprehensive when starting chiropractic care, but you’re in good hands! We welcome you on your first visit with open arms, ready to provide the care and attention you need. From the moment you walk through the door, you’re a part of the Rutherford family, where everyone is a priority. Here’s what you can expect:


You’ll meet our receptionist and start the intake process prior to seeing the chiropractor. You can download and fill out the forms prior to the appointment through our Online Forms page. During the intake session, you will need to complete a series of forms and other paperwork to give us a general idea of your health history, present condition, reoccurring issues, and other information that will assist in creating your records. You will also complete your consent forms for examination and possible treatment.


After your intake, you’ll have a consultation with our chiropractor, Dr. Wesley Stewart. This is where you’ll discuss your symptoms, health history, and concerns. This is a one-on-one where you can become comfortable with the chiropractor, and he can learn more about you. You will discuss treatment alternatives and options, set a few goals, and relay your expectations.

Chiropractic Exam

The examination will follow, with a thorough assessment. A battery of tests will be performed to evaluate your flexibility, reflexes, orthopedic, postural and neurological conditions. Depending on the initial assessment, we may take X-rays to establish a baseline for treatment. This is standard protocol for certain conditions.


After the examination, our chiropractor will provide a detailed report of his findings. This will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, while getting the best recommendations from the doctor on how to proceed, the best treatment options, and what that may entail.

Treatment and Wellness

Based on the doctor’s recommendations, you may schedule your first treatment. Treatment options vary based on your condition, but may include variations of physical therapy, massages and adjustments to your spine. As this is a “whole person approach” centered facility, our doctor will also recommend a wellness program to incorporate into your treatment plan for enhanced results. We have an entire team of wellness specialists that will design a program that includes diet, exercise and maintenance. Having a customized plan to work in conjunction with your treatment will aid in getting back to your standard quality of life, or better.

The Rutherford Chiropractic Clinic has provided excellent service and care to patients in the Murfreesboro, Walterhill, Blackman, Almaville, Rockvale, Lascassas, Christiana, Kittrell and Smyrna, TN area for many years. Through innovative concepts and the “whole person approach,” patients have been able to improve their quality of life while maintaining healthy standards of living.
