On your first visit to our office, you will be greeted by our warm, caring staff and will be asked to fill out our required forms. These forms help us gain important information about you and your condition. The doctor will then talk with you and ask you some specific questions regarding your condition to determine how we can help you. If it is determined that Chiropractic care will be beneficial, a complete Chiropractic examination will be performed. Nothing will ever be done in our office without your consent.
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete Chiropractic examination. This will include the testing of your reflexes, your range of motion and ability to turn and bend, as well as other standard orthopedic, neurological, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information about your condition so that he will have a clear understanding of how chiropractic can help you. If necessary, the doctor may take digital x-rays. If we ever need to refer you to a specialist for further testing, we work with Chicago’s top medical doctors and orthopedics.
Digital X-rays are sometimes required to help determine the cause of your problem by observing the alignment, bone and density of the vertebrae, as well as the disc heights. The need for x-rays is determined on a case by case basis. We use high frequency, digital x-ray technology which is the safest and most state of the art equipment available.
Report of Findings
Once all of the information is gathered and all examinations have been performed, the chiropractor will give you a detailed report of findings, as well as recommendations for treatment.
Our treatments consist of gentle adjustments, physio-therapy, stretches and exercises, massage therapy, an active therapy machine and spinal decompression. The Chiropractic doctor will determine which of these services will be most effective for you. Many of our patients begin to see results from the very first treatment. Chiropractic care is gentle enough for children and can easily restore function and movement to athletes and seniors. Additionally, our office participates in most insurance programs. We also accept auto accident liens and worker’s compensation cases. To find out if your insurance covers chiropractic care, you can call the office directly at 312-337-4004 or schedule a consultation using the online scheduling tool.
