  • Health History questionnaire
  • Basic Physical Exam
  • Vision, including color and acuity
  • Hearing Test, including audiometer
  • Blood pressure check
  • Urinalysis- same day pre-employment
    • 12-panel same day test offered on site, off site can be set up at your request

What do you need to bring with you?

  • Eyeglasses, contact lenses, and hearing aids if you have them
  • List of all medications
    • Documentation from the provider for the treatment recommendations while on the job and special instructions, along with their contact information
  • Medical records for pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, any possible neurological conditions, and others.


We can assure you that all the physicals conducted at ChiroFamily fully meet all Department of Transportation regulations. In order to prevent delays in your certification status, it is important for you to bring all required documents listed above. Once your appointment is finished and all documentation is reviewed, we can certify your fitness for duty in accordance with FMCSA requirements and issue your medical certification card. If you have any questions before your appointment, give us a call today. A perk of getting your physical at our office is that it establishes care with us for any additional chiropractic needs.

I was under Dr. Dani's care before and during my most recent pregnancy. I could feel the difference in my body's level of preparedness for labor and delivery in the pregnancy versus my two previous pregnancies. Dr. Dani was always explaining things as she went along and I felt as though she truly listened carefully to my concerns. When Dr. Dani adjusted my children, she always approached them at their comfort level and was very good at explaining to them what to do and what would happen. Excellent experience being under Dr. Dani's chiropractic care!

I have gone to Dr. Rylan several times for chiropractic adjustments. Most recently, I saw him for neck pain that was affecting me daily and limiting my ability to golf. Dr. Rylan listened to my concerns, assessed my neck, and adjusted me. I experienced relief immediately. I was able to leave the appointment pain-free and get back to the things I enjoy doing life golf! I highly recommend Dr. Rylan and Dr. Dani at ChiroFamily for all your chiropractic needs.

You won't find more honest and serving doctors that have made it their mission to help their patients and community be able to function better and live life to the fullest. Dr. Dani and Dr. Rylan have the head, heart, and hands I wish every patient could be treated by.

I recently visited Dr. Rylan for a neck adjustment.  While we were visiting during the appointment I mentioned a recent problem with my knee.  Dr. Rylan assessed my knee and was able to adjust it.  I didn't even know I could get my knee adjusted!!  My knee was better immediately!  Thankful for Dr. Rylan's knowledge and care he gave me!

There are no better chiropractors in town than the family over at ChiroFamily. Anytime I am in town I always make a stop for a quick adjustment. Last minute scheduling is never a problem, and I am always welcomed with open arms. By combining practical chiropractic training and knowledge with new and upcoming procedures and practices this is the perfect place for me!

Educational, accommodating, and trustworthy. I wrote chiropractors off for close to 10 years because of a bad experience. I called Rylan with severe back pain and neck pain with low hopes of relief. He spent an hour with me educating me on what is what in the chiro world and made me feel comfortable and informed on my treatment. Versus just adjusting me and saying the. Classic “I’ll see you twice a week for 8 weeks and go from there”. Thanks again Rylan for the treatment and reinstalling my trust in chiropractic care!
