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. Lund to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and what chiropractic may do for you. At our office, there is never a charge to sit down for a face-to-face consultation with Dr. Lund. This is an opportunity for you and the doctor to determine if you both feel you are in the right place.
After your consultation, Dr. Lund will perform a complete chiropractic spinal examination. 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. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Lund 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 care cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Lund will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of the report of findings, the doctor will let you know if he feels he can help you and if he can accept you as a patient. Your care plan (number of visits, length of plan, type of adjustment, etc) will be thoroughly explained before starting care.
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 wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
