Brief Paperwork and Consultation
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.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition.
X-rays are taken on every new patient to determine the actual misalignment. This provides the doctor with proper information on how to adjust each patient.
Are X-Rays necessary?. It is important that certain X-rays are taken. To see is to know, to not see is to guess. An Atlas Orthogonist will never guess about your health. He has had extensive X-ray training and will never require X-ray studies which are not vital to the diagnosis and treatment of your condition.
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. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
How is the Treatment Determined?
The treatment is decided upon after a thorough evaluation of the patient’s symptoms and prior health history. Combining that information with the results of any orthopedic, neurological chiropractic examination, leg measurements, temperature differential studies, and X-ray studies, the doctor is able to pinpoint accurately the source of the problem and decide upon the best plan of health care.
