If you're a first-time visitor at NoVA Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A bit of paperwork
We will need to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you will discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which segments are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either confirm possible subluxation or rule out other serious conditions.
1st Report of Findings
Once the doctor has all of the information necessary to evaluate your condition, you will schedule your Report of Findings and first adjustment for the following day. In extreme cases, the doctor may immediately evaluate your findings so that you may receive your first adjustment the same day.
After 1st adjustment, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular adjustments are essential. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options will be discussed at this time.
