GBC Chiropractic will walk you through the steps of your first visit so you know what to expect from our staff and doctors during your time with us.
PATIENT INTAKE FORM:
Upon your arrival at our office, we have an intake form for you to fill out. The form provides our staff and doctors with general information about you and your condition.To save time please complete the form prior to your visit.
The first part of your visit is a consultation with your doctor to discuss your condition, relevant medical history and any questions you may have.
In order to properly evaluate you one of our doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination. The examination may include such things as testing your reflexes and flexibility, postural and physical tests, as well as neurological and orthopedic tests. The need for specific tests including x-rays and MRI are determined on a case by case basis.
REPORT OF FINDINGS:
After your initial examination, the doctor will give youa detailed report of what was found in rgards to your condition. During this time, the doctor will explain what was found during your initial visit and make recommendations for your treament. Any questions that you may have for the doctor are welcome at this time. Common questions include, "What can you do to help me? How often will I need to come in for treatment? How long will it take for me to feel better? What will my treatment cost?"
After all of your questions are answered, the doctor will go over his/her recommendations and inform you on whether your condition will need the care of another medical provider. Our goal is to get each patient out of pain as quickly as possible.
TREATMENT ON 1ST DAY:
Upon finishing the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical medicine, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment at any time so we can adjust your care to fit you best. Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first treatment. Our alignment methods are gentle and effective for anyone from children to elderly to athletes.
POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS AND WELLNESS PROGRAM:
Each of our patients is treated individually and will have a customized treatment plan. Patients will often be given instructions on activities and stretches to follow post-treatment in order to prolong and enhance the benefits of Chiropractic care. You may also be given application instructions on using ice or heat, a list of certain positions or activities to limit or avoid during and after recovery. Our office and staff are available to create a healthy quick recovery plan for you.
Our office participates in many insurance programs. To find out if your insurance covers chiropractic care, you can call the office or fill out the insurance information form on this web site and we will get back to you with information regarding your coverage. For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, there are still opportunities to receive the care you need.
