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. If you prefer to fill the forms out in the office, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete the paperwork.
What to bring:
- Health insurance card
- List of current medications and dosages
- New patient forms (if you choose to fill them out at home)
- Any diagnostic imaging (x-ray, MRI, CT Scan)
If you are unsure that Dr Amy Berglund will be able to help you for your particular condition, a free consultation is available. She can discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This free consultation is designed for Dr Amy Berglund to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
Once you are in your private exam room and the new patient paperwork is completed Dr. Amy will begin your exam. She will start by taking an in-depth history of your current condition followed by past medical history and lifestyle. Next she will start the physical examination, which will consist of neurological and orthopedic tests. This will allow Dr. Amy to know all aspects of your condition. If Dr. Amy has any concerns during the examination she may choose to order radiographs or an MRI.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr Amy Berglund will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, exam findings, and personal goals, Dr Amy Berglund will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr Amy Berglund will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Once it has been decided that Chiropractic is the preferred method of treatment, you will have your first adjustment. The first treatment can include a spinal manipulation, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest 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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also 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.
