On your first visit to our office you will be welcomed as a member of our family and our receptionist will greet you with a warm smile. You will then be asked to fill out our required forms which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition.
The doctor will then talk with you and ask you some specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If the doctor can help you, he will let you know. If the doctor cannot help you, you will be referred to a doctor that will be able to help you the most. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent. Remember that it's a conversation - not a commitment!
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that a better understanding of how chiropractic can help you. If necessary, the doctor may take X-rays or refer you for additional testing procedures.
X-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. The need for X-ray is considered on a case by case basis. We perform standing weight-bearing x-rays which help in determining structural abnormalities of the spine, unlike medical x-rays which are often taken laying down and does not supply any valuable biomechanical anaylysis. Our equipment is state of the art for imaging. We also have the capability of taking full spine x-rays which is the gold standard for diagnosing conditions like scoliosis.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will review all of the findings and give you a written report and tell you recommendations for treatment if he can help you. This usually happens on the second visit after the doctor has had sufficient time to review the X-ray findings. The following questions will be answered during this detailed report of findings:
1. What's wrong with me?
2. Can chiropractic help me?
3. How long will it take?
4. How much will it cost?
Although chiropractic treatment often doesn't begin until the second visit, therapies for relief may be initiated on the initial visit. Many of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our specific, gentle and effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.
Our office participates in many insurance programs. We also accept auto accident liens and workers compensation cases. To find out if your insurance covers chiropractic care, you can call the Back to Health Chiropractic directly or schedule your free consultation at (219) 326-5100. We offer a complimentary no-obligation consultation. It's a conversation, not a commitment!
For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, very flexible affordable payment programs can be arranged.
