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. Miguel Arbez to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Arbez to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Miguel Arbez 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.
In most cases X-rays are not required. Depending on your specific condition, we may request that X-rays be taken.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, ultrasound therapy, and/or trigger point therapy. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Report of Findings
On your second visit, after all the information is collected and examinations are performed, Miguel Arbez 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 treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examination findings, Miguel Arbez will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Miguel Arbez will provide a wellness program for your needs.
As part of your report of findings, 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, our wellness team will work with you also 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.
