Upon entering our office, we 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, we will update your personal history so the doctor can better serve you. Then you will have a consultation with Dr. Trent Gusso to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Trent Gusso to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, you will undergo 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.
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.
Report of Findings
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Trent Gusso will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
After your adjustment, Dr. Trent Gusso 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.
