Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. They are located in the New Patient tab if you would like to fill those out ahead of time. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. At that time we will also take a copy of your insurance card (if you have one) and a form of identification.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Langel, D.C. to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Langel, D.C. to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Langel, D.C. will perform 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
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Langel, D.C. will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- What will my care consist of?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Langel, D.C. will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Langel, D.C. will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, Dr. Langel, D.C. may or may not adjust you. This will depend on the information gathered. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Once your treatment plan has concluded and you and Dr. Langel, D.C. feel you have reached your goals, he will discuss wellness care. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to maintain good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive attitude.
