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 Dr. Scott Misek to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Scott Misek to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Scott Misek 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 may take X-rays as well. 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.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Scott Misek 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. Scott Misek will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Scott Misek will provide the best treatment for your needs.
If Dr. Misek has determined that yours is a chiropractic case, your treatment may consist of spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or specific excerises tailored to your condition..
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. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized plan.
