Your First Visit at Painless Chiropractic
Your First Visit
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.
Next, you will have a consultation with James Ide to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for James Ide to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, James Ide 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.
Dr. Ide is very thural and particular about doing an excellent job. Many times, regardless of how an area of the body such as the spine may feel to the touch, X-rays show exactly what is going on and which direction a misalignment is going, allowing the chiropractor to adjust accordingly. This is why depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays to 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, James Ide 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, James Ide will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. James Ide 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 the chiropractic office, Dr. Ide 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. Painless Chiropractic isn’t simply a chiropractic office, we are member of your community and our goal is to help as many people as possible in Fenton and the surrounding area get out of pain and reach their health goals. We strive to look at you as you are, a full circle, living, breathing individual that lives a busy life with many different focuses and challenges.
