Your First Visit

YOUR FIRST VISIT TO DECRESCENZO CHIROPRACTIC

first visitYour first visit will begin with a consultation. Your doctor will take a full medical history and ask you about your present condition. Next, the doctor will perform an examination to evaluate the nature of your problem. This examination generally includes a series of basic physical tests, as well as a specialized chiropractic evaluation of spinal movements and posture. Your first visit will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Not all patients will receive spinal manipulation on the initial visit; this is a clinical decision and varies from patient to patient. For those patients who do receive spinal manipulation on the initial visit, it may be a normal occurrence to feel mild discomfort. To help alleviate this, you should ice the affected regions 10 minutes on and 15 minutes off, one to three times on the day of your first treatment.

Patient History

In preparation for the examination we do require information about you and your injury. A few of these are:

  • When and how did the pain start?
  • Where is it located?
  • Is it a result of an injury?
  • What activities/circumstances make it better?
  • What activities/circumstances make it worse?

CONSULTATION & EXAMINATION

x-rayAlong with reviewing your history, a complete orthopedic and neurological examination will be performed. This includes but not limited to: range of motion test, muscle strength, and reflex test. If necessary, your doctor may recommend X-rays or other diagnostic testing to obtain further information about the mechanics of your spine and determine your condition.

REPORT OF FINDINGS & TREATMENT PLAN

Chiropractic CareOnce all tests are completed, your chiropractic physician will explain your condition and determine an appropriate treatment plan for you. Treatment plans do vary from patient to patient. Our goal is to get started to provide you with the most effective treatment for relief of your symptoms. Over the course of care, your chiropractic physician will monitor your individual progress and may recommend changes in your lifestyle, work environment and exercise patterns.

If necessary, you may be referred to another healthcare specialist for further evaluation if your condition warrants.

Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they also depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin.
