Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. 

***It's important that you bring your nutritional supplements as well as a list of medication you currently take. Please arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment if you are new to our office to fill out paperwork.***

Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Schacter to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Schacter to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Schacter will perform a complete chiropractic examination; testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


Imaging

Imaging Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may send you to have imaging taken. If you have any imaging studies that have been taken within the last 3 months of the current year that pertain to your current issue please bring the disc, films, and reports. Imaging can 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 after reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and/or imaging , Dr. Schacter will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers, and discuss with you the best course of action for your individual treatment requirements. It is important that you bring your nutritional supplements as well as a list of medication you currently take.

Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include acupuncture, spinal adjustments, physical therapy exercises, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.


Wellness Program

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. If you desire, we will provide handouts and instruction for at home care and will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. 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. We add years to your life and life to your years.
