Upon entering our 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.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Stephanie Serenko to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Stephanie Serenko to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Stephanie Serenko will perform a complete chiropractic examination. A primary component of the examination entails a variety of tests to examine nervous system function and how stress may be affecting your health. Many things you may not realize affect your nervous system, so on the day of your initial examination and any followup exams, we ask that you avoid consuming excessive amount of caffeine from coffee, pop, etc., avoid excessive exposure to the sun, and avoid using bath salts, oils and sunscreens. We also ask that, unless absolutely necessary, you do not take any prescription or over the counter medications until after your scans, participate in vigorous physical activity or expose yourself to an unusual amount of stress and anxiety. 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.
