What to Expect on Your First Visit
Welcome! We’re excited you’re here and look forward to connecting.
At Evolve Chiropractic, you’ll discover a different paradigm in wellness care, a growing collection of free classes and resources, opportunities to connect with our growing tribe of seekers, and much more!
This video provides an introduction to the unique approach we take and how to get started.
Your Journey at Evolve Chiropractic Begins with a Conversation
Your journey at Evolve Chiropractic begins with a conversation. When you come in for your first visit, you will meet with Dr. Jason right away. We’ll review your health history and lifestyle, and discuss your health and wellness goals, and your goals for the future. If we decide together that it makes sense to continue, we can move right into a comprehensive exam of your spine and nervous system to discover how well you are adapting to life.
When you schedule your first visit, you will receive an emailed invitation to fill out our online intake questionnaire. You must complete the questionnaire at least 4 hours before your appointment so we can review your health history before you arrive. That way, we can use our time together to focus on your needs and goals.
Please understand we are unable to begin your initial visit if we do not receive your intake questionnaire and will need to reschedule your visit. If you have any difficulty accessing our questionnaire, please contact us as soon as possible.
Your Comprehensive Exam
Neural Efficiency Scans
Your comprehensive exam begins with cutting edge technology that measures your heart rate variability and performs a thermal scan and an sEMG scan of your spine.
- Heart Rate Variability tells us how well you’re adapting and how much energy you have in reserve.
- The thermal scan gives us insight into your spinal blood flow and autonomic nerve function.
- The Surface Electromyography (sEMG) scan tells us how your postural muscles in your spine are coordinating, which reveals imbalances in your spine’s behavior.
After your scans, we perform additional analyses and assessments to ensure we have a full picture of your current state of health, including:
- Digital Posture Analysis
- Dual Scale Weight Distribution Analysis
- Spinal Movement Analysis
- Manual Muscle Assessments
- Sensory and reflex testing
- Referral for x-rays or advanced imaging
Your Detailed Review of Findings
Dr. Jason personally reviews all of the information we gather about your health, your spine, your body, and your goals during your initial consultation and comprehensive exam and provides a detailed report bringing all the details together for a complete picture of where you are in your health, how it relates to your goals, and how care can help you achieve your goals, improve your health, and live the life of your dreams!
We review your findings immediately after your exam, answer any questions you have, and discuss your personalized care plan, together with payment options.

NetworkSpinal Care Plans, Financial Policy, and Cost of Care
Improving Your Spine and Nervous System is a Process
To help you optimize your health, experience extraordinary results, and claim more for yourself and others, we provide the unique service known as NetworkSpinal® Care. NetworkSpinal Care helps you develop unique and progressive strategies in your nervous system involving the development of Spinal Gateways and your signature Network Spinal Wave. This is a process that takes time. To realize the full benefits of NetworkSpinal Care requires frequent and consistent visits to develop the associated body-mind strategies. (Learn about these NetworkSpinal strategies at https://www.fortworthevolve.com/networkspinalcare)
We do not provide “once in a while” symptom relief care. This care approach does not involve diagnosing or treating conditions and is not intended to be a replacement for those services. Though many people receiving NetworkSpinal Care have experienced resolution of various symptoms, conditions, and pain, NetworkSpinal Care is not provided as a treatment for pain or any specific conditions.
Your body has its own unique timing and healing priorities that can only be discovered as you move forward in this (or any other) form of care. Instead of offering a care plan to treat specific symptoms or trying to guess exactly how long your body will take to create the unique strategies associated with NetworkSpinal Care, we offer plans for care with a focus of helping you achieve the greatest results possible during the time we work together. We will create and track goals for your care together, and if additional care approaches are needed to help you achieve them, we will gladly refer you to a trusted practitioner to support your specific needs.
At Evolve Chiropractic, NetworkSpinal Care begins with an Initial Immersion into Life Care complete with a course of 2-3 NetworkSpinal Entrainments (care sessions) per week, monthly evaluations with spinal scanning and heart rate variability technologies, manual muscle testing, digital posture analysis, palpation, and self-assessment surveys to create measurable outcomes and goals.
Research in NetworkSpinal Care has yet to establish a ceiling to the benefits of this unique form of care. The more often you receive care, the more momentum for change your body creates. The longer you receive care, the more your nervous system learns to adapt with these progressive strategies. We encourage practice members to include NetworkSpinal as a regular part of their healthy lifestyle.
With consistent practice of skills and activities of any kind, it takes around 6 months for the nervous system to develop sustainable neuroplastic changes*. For this reason, we recommend beginning with 6 months of care for long-lasting and profound results. Immersion Care Plans are available as 3- and 6-month plans. After your initial 6 months of care, we offer Life Care Plans to support you in creating and claiming the life of your dreams.
*Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning.

(See Life Care Plans in our online booking at https://evolve.intakeq.com/booking)
- Special Considerations
- We reserve the right to support those in need and offer hardship and/or charitable rates on an individual basis. Within this consideration we reserve the right to limit how many people we serve with hardship/charitable rates and/or to designate select services as eligible for these rates to ensure the financial health of our practice and maintain our ability to continue service to others.
CareCredit Financing Options
- You can use your CareCredit card as a standard time of service payment method with your standard card financing rates.
- For transactions over $200, you may choose to use a 6-month financing plan and for transactions over $400, you may choose to use a 12-month financing plan where you will not be charged any interest if you take care of the monthly payments on time and pay the entire balance before the end of the term. If you are unable to take care of the entire amount prior to the end of your financing term, 26.9% APR is applied to the entire transaction amount.
- Only 90-days’ worth of services can be applied at a time to a CareCredit card, so you cannot use your CareCredit card for one-time payment of care plans lasting longer than 90 days.
- Evolve Chiropractic is charged a financing fee for use of CareCredit, so you will not receive any additional savings for monthly care plan payments on Life Care plans when using CareCredit.
- To learn more about CareCredit, see the brochure in our office or visit: (https://www.carecredit.com/go/484DGM/) to learn more online.
Informed Consent for Care at Evolve Chiropractic
We encourage and support a shared decision-making process between us regarding your health needs. As a part of that process you have a right to be informed about the condition of your health and the recommended care to be provided to you so that you can make the decision whether to undergo such care with full knowledge of the known risks and intended benefits. This information is intended to make you better informed so you can knowledgably give or withhold your consent.
At Evolve Chiropractic, we provide a specific form of spinal care known as NetworkSpinal ®. NetworkSpinal Care is an evidence-based approach to wellness and body awareness. This approach is only taught to chiropractors and includes a unique application in spinal care.
Many practice members who have been under NetworkSpinal Care in our office have reported significant changes in their lives. Many have reported strong emotional experiences that have been associated with discovering and releasing long standing stress and tension in their bodies and lives. There is no guarantee that you will have these experiences though it is not recommended that you begin this form of care if you are not open to experiencing your body in a new way and improving your lifestyle.
I hereby request and consent to receiving spinal care, including wellness education in this office by Jason Dixon, DC, who provides NetworkSpinal (NS) Care, a low force approach which has unique outcomes and clinical results. Dr. Jason chooses to practice NS, as he is professionally and personally confident regarding the safety and effectiveness of this form of care.
This office provides care in accordance with the Council on Chiropractic Practice Guidelines and the Canon of Ethics of the Association for NetworkSpinal Care. Dr. Jason has been trained in traditional chiropractic care and is continuously training in the latest procedures of NetworkSpinal Care.
The purpose of this consent form is to help me better understand the nature of the services offered in this office and our mutual responsibilities. This fosters a more effective relationship and avoids misunderstandings regarding expectations. Having well understood expectations is anticipated to promote a greater sense of safety and healing.
NS Care does not attempt to manually, or by instrument, manipulate spinal fixations structurally (often associated with a snapping or popping sound), nor does it directly treat painful areas of the spine and body. Instead, by enhancing my body’s awareness of itself and specifically my spine, I understand I can develop new strategies for healing, adapting to stress, and experiencing wellness. These strategies promote spontaneous self-correction and self-regulation of spinal tension patterns and supports my natural ability to heal.
NS Care consists of gentle touch contacts along the neck and back to achieve greater communication between the brain and body, and new sensory and motor strategies. NS Care adopts an approach associated with somatic (body/spinal awareness) training. There is a body of research characterizing NS Care and documenting its unique and significant wellness benefits. I understand I may obtain copies of published research articles and/or abstracts in this office. I can learn more about this process of care at https://www.fortworthevolve.com/networkspinalcare. I can also learn more about NetworkSpinal care from the developer of the care at https://epienergetics.com/welcome-networkspinal
I am aware that I will be receiving gentle touch NetworkSpinal adjustments, also called Entrainments. Assessments of my progress will include monitoring of my spine and body awareness, responsiveness to inner rhythms, tension, and ease patterns. At regular intervals, following commencement of care, reassessments will be performed. These will include my personal perception of my wellness and my awareness of my spine and body-mind changes. Dr. Jason will report to me the improvement in my spinal and nervous system integrity and my ability to self-regulate tension and to re-organize my spine through his observations and objective instrumentation.
NS Care is advanced through a series of levels of care. Each Level of Care involves the development of new and unique spontaneous spinal wave motions, other body movements, and oscillations. These waves, which are suggested to be associated with the greater spinal stability, the redistribution of energy, and the transfer of internal information are also associated with greater wellness, improved quality of life, and increased life enjoyment.
I also understand that, in addition to NS Care and wellness education, Dr. Jason may perform additional examinations or assessments and offer health/spinal care or advice that is consistent with my individual needs.
It has been explained to my satisfaction, and I understand that the care offered at Evolve Chiropractic is not a form of, or replacement for, the diagnosis or treatment of any symptom, disease, or malady. Instead, it is a form of wellness care and self-education that empowers my connection with my body-mind and develops new strategies for spinal and nervous system integrity and wellness. It develops new capacities in my body for the identification of, spontaneous release of, and redirection of tension, including those that are unique to NS Care.
It is common for people receiving NS Care to breathe more deeply and more fully, engaging the spine with their respiration, to spontaneously adapt postures that release or redistribute tension, to bust stress, and to experience more of their inner life energy.
I understand it is common to experience a wider range of motion and emotion during care. It is common, as care progresses, to find new options in the body and in life, which often lead to significant life changes.
This form of care is NOT suggested for those individuals who wish to remove a symptom or condition without the occurrence of other fundamental changes in their lives. The care at Evolve Chiropractic often promotes significant changes in health choices, lifestyle, experience of the body-mind, emotion, and consciousness.
Rather than attempting to simply return me to my previous state minus a symptom, Dr. Jason instead chooses to help me achieve new levels of wellness and life potential that I may never have had before.
