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.
While you are filling in the paperwork, the doctor will be studying and marking the X-rays you may have brought with you, to rule out any serious conditions and assist him in developing the most effective treatment possibilities for you.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your specific health-related problems, your concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
In order to determine the extent of your actual problem, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition and its timeline. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which structural areas are affected and to what extent.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, you will be shown your marked X-rays to further visualize and inform you of the nature of your problem. A spinal model and charts will also be used to further your understanding of chiropractic’s approach.
Once you give your consent to begin the chiropractic spinal corrective care, you will be shown to doctor’s state-of-the-art (gentle-drop) adjusting table for an easy ride from the vertical to the horizontal position. Spinal adjustments may include some physical therapy and/or soft tissue applications to further enhance the treatment outcome.
Prior to leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, home exercises and/or stretches, and avoidance of certain activities or positions at home or on the job.
To start your treatment on the right foot you will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 2-3 days. Multiple follow-up visits can be scheduled also at this time. Our health team are only too happy to assist you with any questions you still may have.
