Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Dade Donovan to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Dade Donovan to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Dade Donovan will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and functional tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
We do not routinely take X-rays but may decide they are necessary based on your exam and history. 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. Dade Donovan 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 examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Dade Donovan will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Dade Donovan will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
