Upon entering the office, our receptionist 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. Be sure to bring Identification and, if necessary, an insurance card. If you have prior diagnostic studies, bring them for review as well.
Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Howard Brown to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial portion of the examination is designed for Dr. Howard Brown to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Howard Brown will perform a complete chiropractic examination to determine the source of your condition. This will include standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. Examinations are thorough and nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you to a Board Certified Radiologist for x-rays. If needed, the study will alert us to the most effective treatment plan. Additionally, it will alert you of serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays up close.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Howard Brown will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How long will it take?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and x-rays, Dr. Howard Brown will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Brown will provide you with the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of your Report of Findings, 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. Dr. Brown is an expert with multiple adjustment techniques. At Brown Chiropractic, along with a hands-on treatment, we have specialized adjusting instruments and table to accommodate your individual needs.
Brown Chiropractic will gradually instruct you in 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. Our wellness team will work with you 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.
