Brief Paperwork

Upon entering our Chiropractic office, we will have some brief paperwork for you to fill out called intake forms. The intake forms provide us with general information about yourself and specific information about your injury or condition. Auto accident or personal injury intake forms will be different from family wellness care intake forms.Consultation So please specify if you are coming in for a condition or were involved in an automobile accident or personal injury or and if your were referred to us by your attorney or another medical specialist.

Consultation

Once the intake forms have been completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Svastits to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Consultation is Free of Charge.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, Dr. Svastits will ask you various questions related to your injury or condition. Next, a number of specialized orthopedic and neurologic tests may be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-RayX-ray Studies

Your specific injury or condition may require Dr. Svastits to take or order x-rays in order to either rule out more serious conditions or assist him in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. At times, interim and after treatment x-rays may be required for comparison purposes.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided or scheduled for their first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, massage, and/or soft tissue therapies. Co-management with a medical specialist may also be an option if Dr. Svastits believes this will aid in the patients' speedy recovery.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, being taken off of work or school or work restrictions, avoidance of certain inflammatory drinks and foods, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
