We understand that arriving at a chiropractic office for the first time can be nerve racking. If you’ve never experienced chiropractic care before, you may not know what to expect when you come to our Pembroke Pines chiropractic office for the first time. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That’s why at Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center, our aim is to remove any unnecessary stress or tension and make you feel comfortable during your visit with our chiropractor.
In this area of the website, you will be able to take care of the items necessary for your chiropractic visit prior to arriving, in the comfort of your own home. If you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 866-465-3766
1. Patient History and Symptoms
Be prepared to fill out patient history forms and give information on your symptoms and condition. To make this easier for you we offer an electronic form that can be filled out online.
Patients are usually asked to provide information on family medical history, any pre-existing medical conditions or prior injuries, and previous and current health providers and treatments.
One of the most stressful aspects of living in modern life is dealing with the fallout from an auto accident. If you have been in an accident you will need to provide detailed information on what happened and provide insurance info if applicable.
We have a highly skilled staff who will help with your insurance questions and forms.
2. The Chiropractic Exam
A thorough consultation includes general tests such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and reflexes, as well as specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess:
- Range of motion of the affected part
- Muscle tone
- Muscle strength
- Neurological integrity
The most common diagnostic studies during chiropractic exams include:
- X-ray exam
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan
- Other laboratory tests
Many chiropractic clinics can perform basic X-rays, but an MRI scan and more extensive imaging studies are usually referred to an outside center.
Feel free to ask questions regarding the chiropractic examination, diagnosis, and treatment program. Asking questions will help both you and your doctor with your recovery:
- How long will it take to get well?
- What type of diagnostic testing is needed?
- Will I need care from other health care professionals?
- What are the side effects and possible complications of the process, if any?
- What type of patient education do you provide?
After Effects of Treatment – Post Visits How Will I Feel After My Session?
Most people, you will feel more relaxed and less concerned. Many people find they breathe more fully. Some patients continue to move and stretch in various ways to release any tension they may be holding. Begin working on changing chronic tension patterns.
You May Feel Sore?
Adverse effects are typically minor and brief in length. The likelihood of initial soreness or increased pain after a chiropractic adjustment is similar to starting an exercise program. There are several ways you can speed up the healing process after a chiropractic treatment.
To promote healing after an adjustment.
- Drink plenty of water
- Use an ice pack on the treated area (for any swelling or redness)
- Try light stretching exercises
- Sleep on a suitable mattress
- Avoid heavy lifting
- Refrain from intense physical exercise for at least 3–5 days
- Eat a balanced diet
Scheduling A Follow Up Session
Patients sometimes make the mistake of receiving treatment once and then fail to follow up with their chiropractor for the recommended treatments afterward. For optimal results, you should complete a treatment plan.
