Please arrive at our office 15-30 minutes early for your first scheduled appointment to fill out the required paperwork, unless you havedownloaded and completed it at home and are bringing it with you. If you have any insurance information or past medical records, such as medications taken, copies of X-rays, MRIs, etc., please bring them wth you so that the doctor and our insurance department have an opportunity to look them over.
You should note that initial consultations are always complementary at the Zastrow Chiropractic Clinic, so you have nothing to lose by discussing your condition with one of our doctors to find out if we can help you. Once we have all of your intake information, the doctor will sit down with you to complete a detailed history of your health.
Based on the information gathered in the consultation, you may choose to receive a comprehensive physical examination. Orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination procedures will be used to determine whether you are a candidate for chiropractic treatment. If we find that there is a chiropractic cause to your condition, specific X-rays will be taken to determine the exact magnitude of any structural abnormalities.
You can be assured that radiological examinations are performed only when clinically necessary to ensure proper patient care. The pictures of your spine are taken using our digital high-frequency X-ray unit, which requires drastically less radiation exposue compared to traditional X-ray machines.
The films will be analyzed by the doctor to determine if any spinal misalignments are present. This analysis will allow the doctor to effectively make the right adjustment to realign your spinal column. The office staff will then schedule you for your follow-up visit, or "report of findings," where the doctor will review his findings with you and make appropriate recommendations specific to your case.
This initial visit may take up to 90 minutes.
Please select the form that applies to you from the list below, fill it out, and bring it with you to your first visit.
At Zastrow Chiropractic Clinic, we will closely monitor your body's ability to maintain spinal alignment over your first month of care. Subsequent appointments are necessary for long-term correction, which in turn leads to long-term wellness.
Subsequent visits generally take between 20 and 30 minutes.
