Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. If you have not completed our New Patient Intake online prior to your appointment, we will have you do that on an iPad in the office. This intake provides us with your health history and information on your condition. We will also need your to bring your license or ID and Insurance card to your Initial visit.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Bohatiuk to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Bohatiuk to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Bohatiuk will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. We will also perform a MyoVision sEMG scan as part of your evaluation. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. 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.
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 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.
