Your First Visit
Upon entering our clinics, our receptionists will welcome you. We will request that you complete our patient forms which will be given to you by our reciptionists. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with one of our Doctors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our Doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, one of our Doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we can refer you for taking X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your Doctor 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 (if needed), your Doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Your Doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, your 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.
Every patient’s care plan and results will be different, just as a person’s history of injuries, health problems and lifestyles are different. But one thing always holds true, those that keep their appointments, follow the doctor’s recommendations and get more educated and involved in their health, achieve better and longer lasting results in less time. Restoring and maintaining your health and your family’s health is a team effort. We at Plato Chiropractic Health Clinic are here to guide you in taking better care of yourself and your family so you can have a longer, healthier life – enjoying life more fully. Ongoing chiropractic spinal maintenance care keeps your spine and nervous system functioning optimally – resulting in the healthier body and life you and your family desire and deserve.
