Our receptionist will request that you complete our patient form, this is a simple two-page form, which is designed for you to provides us with your contact information, health history and information on your condition.
Your medical and health history is critical to your treatment. Please include auto accidents that you may have been in, past and current treatment options that have been explored, past surgeries and any medications that you have been on or are currently taking.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Shane S. Bryan to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options.
This consultation is necessary for Dr. Bryan to learn more about you and your condition, and for him to develop the best Care Plan suited for your condition.
A complete evaluation which includes an assessment of patient history, family history, dietary habits, other treatments you have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical and other), your job, and other questions, designed to help determine the nature of your illness and the state of your health.
What follows is a spinal adjustment. This is a careful spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities and to determine if it is appropriate to begin chiropractic care.
Patients have many questions about what an adjustment is. We have answered some of the more frequently asked questions about the process here.
After receiving a careful examination and adjustments, if needed, to remove nerve irritation, some patients feel significant improvement rather quickly.
It is often natural for such patients to think they are already well. There is, however, much more to illness than pain. Patients should ask these questions:
- “Why did I get sick in the first place?”
- “What caused this problem to develop?”
- “Is it possible that this problem has been developing for a long time?”
- “How can I avoid these problems in the future?”
Doctors of Chiropractic teach that we should try to determine the underlying cause of the problem and attempt to correct it, rather than trying to remove the symptoms and have you “think” you are well.
