Upon entering our office please sign in and have a seat. You are always welcome as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork consists of your basic contact information and consent.
Next, you will consult with Dr. Anthony Usera to discuss how the principles of Chiropractic can restore and maintain your well-being. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Anthony Usera to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After a brief consultation, Dr. Anthony Usera will perform a hands-on examination testing your reflexes, muscle energy, nerve energy, and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. All proceedures are included in the initial fee and nothing will be done in our chiropractic studio without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may recommend X-rays as well. At least 98% of people do NOT require X-rays as they are only recommended in the most serious spinal conditions.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Anthony Usera 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 plan cost?
After discussing your, goals, and examining your spine Dr. Anthony Usera will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Anthony Usera 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 adjustment. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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 or heat 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.
