New Patients

Welcome to Commonwealth Family Chiropractic! Our conveniently located practice in Elizabethtown is the ideal place to start living your healthiest, best life! We see patients of all ages and have an entertaining lobby featuring a motion sensing floor game that kids love. Please help us make your visit as efficient as possible by filling out these forms and bringing them along to your first visit.

The First Visit

This first appointment takes about 45 minutes. We will first ask you to provide information regarding your reasons for seeking treatment at our office. Here’s what you can expect next:

  • An examination and conversation to help determine if chiropractic will be helpful to you.
  • If Dr. Eriksen isn’t certain that he can help you, advice on other options will be given.
  • X-rays are typically taken and in most cases treatment will be performed that day.  In other cases, patients are asked to return the following day.

New patients should wear casual, loose clothing as we will not ask you to gown or disrobe.

The Second Visit

We will usually have you come back the next day for Dr. Eriksen to review X-rays if taken. This report of findings visit also includes his recommendations for your care. Please reserve approximately 30 minutes for this appointment.

Do I Have to Go for the Rest of My Life?

While some patients with chronic or permanent conditions such as arthritis and scoliosis will benefit from long-term chiropractic care, others may have a short-term condition that can be addressed in just a few visits. We have many patients who are interested in wellness or maintenance care because they know how much better they feel when they’re adjusted on a regular basis. Rest assured, however, that we never try to push any patient into long-term plans.


We look forward to helping you get on the path to exceptional health and wellness. Book a same-day appointment today!
