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 one of our Chiropractors to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for our team to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals. If you are unsure if chiropractic care is right for you and your condition, do not hesitate to call our office at (443) 842-5500 to schedule a free consultation. We would be happy to set aside time to discuss your condition and your treatment options.
After your consultation, one of our Chiropractors will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your ranges of motion and examining your spine. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examination tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may need to 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. Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic offers on-site digital X-ray radiography in several of our clinics. Patients will be given a copy of their X-rays on CD at the end of their first visit. Rest assured that patients who may be pregnant and those who do not clinically require an X-ray will not receive them.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, our Chiropractors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
1. How can you help me?
2. How often do I need to come in?
3. What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, our team will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Our team often co-manages patient’s conditions with other providers, including physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, pain management physicians, and primary care physicians in Baltimore and the surrounding communities.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue therapy. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
