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. Remember, the more information we collect regarding your health the better equipped we will be to help you achieve your healthcare goals.
Next, you will have a consultation with either Dr. Rob or Dr. Marissa to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Rob or Dr. Marissa will perform a complete chiropractic examination. The exam will include standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical evaluations. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent. Based upon our initial findings further diagnositic testing may be warranted on your next visit and those recommendations will be made at this time. These tests may include: Computerized Postural Assessment, Computerized Range of Motion and Muscle Testing, or a Digital Foot Scan.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. Advanced Spinal Correction is equipped with the latest in Digital X-ray. 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. Rob Peck will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Peck will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Peck will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of your initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physiological therapeutics, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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.
