Health History Forms
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Print them off our on-line forms area, fill them out and save 20.00 on your first visit!
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with one of our Doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is and make sure chiropractic care is appropriate for you concerns, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues and nerves are affected and to what extent.
A surface electromyograph is a painless procedure which is crucial to determining if your concerns are treatable with chiropractic care. These scans can also uncover hidden health problems that are not yet symptomatic. The scans give us some insight into the underlying cause of your condition.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. In this office a second opinion is provided by a medical radiologist. This perspective is quite valuable as they are specialists at detecting pathology. If they do, we will refer you for appropriate care.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. Exceptions to this occur when x-rays are required to determine if care is safe or if they are required to determine exactly what to do.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time. You can choose the type of treatment plan you want. Care can range from simple pain care to comprehensive wellness care.
