Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.

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

After your consultation, Dr. Sophronia Stidwell will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. 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 take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Sophronia Stidwell 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, Dr. Sophronia Stidwell will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Sophronia Stidwell will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

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 massage. 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, our wellness team will work with you also 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.

  • "My original problem was lower back pain which affected my ability to complete normal daily task. I often experienced difficulty walking and bending. Although, I visited other chiropractic offices in previous years, Dr. Stidwell was able to provide more information regarding my condition. This has given me very good reason to continue coming to Copiah Family Wellness and Chiropractic Center. My life has changed now with more information regarding my condition. I have now been able to be more active without limitation or fear of hurting my back or being in terrible pain. I have hope for only having to have minimal or less frequent visits but also become more knowledgeable and continue to come to Copiah Family Wellness for spinal adjustments."

  • "My right arm, upper and lower back were in constant pain. I could not
    reach behind me or lift an objects of minimum weight without it hurting. My
    grip in my right hand was weak. It was hard to hold even a broom without
    hurting. I could not bend down to pick up anything or even get down on both
    knees to pray. I had to go down on my left knee only. After being in so
    much pain even after going to physical therapy at another facility, I
    decided to go in and talk with Dr. Stidwell and she informed me of the
    differences between the two processes of therapy and now my body has
    experienced the difference. I’m better!! I had spoken with Dr. Stidwell
    months before actually going in. I am now able to go down on both knees. I
    can lift objects much better with my right hand now. I’m able to move the
    arm back and forward with minimum pain. I’ve learned how to properly bend
    and lift and how to use all the muscles to aid me in day to day activities."

  • "When I first started coming, I had neck stiffness where I could only turn my neck to the left and hardly none to the right. I decided to come to the office after initially talking with Dr. Stidwell prior and her prompting me to schedule a visit, therefore, I did. My experience here has been life changing because it made a difference instantly. My hope for my health with ongoing chiropractic care is remaining pain free."
    Veronica Eason
  • "My original problem was concerns about my back and having muscle spasms. I also have had a pulsating sound in my ear. The problem was affecting me by causing discomfort. I came to this office when I had a consultation done and wanted to further discuss my issues. I think that my life is changing because I am getting good results from my experiences her at this office. My hope for health with ongoing chiropractic care is to have a healthier and happier life knowing that I can feel great."

  • "I originally came into Dr. Stidwell office because my back, hip, and shoulders hurt when I try to do housework. I haven’t had a day without pain in ten years. I had a talk with Dr. Stidwell and I decided to come and get checked out. Chiropractic has changed my life for the better. I had my first day without pain in a long time and it felt good. My hope for my health with ongoing chiropractic care is to have a life without pain."
    Dorothy Lofton
  • "I came to Dr. Stidwell's office because I was having shoulder pain while recovering from rotator cuff surgery. I was unable to move my arm up above my head or behind my back without being in extreme pain. Dr. Stidwell did a laser treatment on my shoulder and immediately I was able to lift my arm without pain. Since being treated I have been able to do daily activities, I felt calm and at ease with dealing with the pain, recovery, and overall wellness. Eventually I hope to be off of existing medications and learn how to achieve a healthy lifestyle."
