Upon entering our Frisco chiropractic office, our lovely front desk associate will greet you will a smile and welcome you as a member of our chiropractic family. We will warmly ask that you complete the patient forms found in the New Patient Center. These documents give us your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a detailed consultation with Dr. Stanton to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, questions, and potential treatment options. This first initial appointment is tailored for us to learn more about you, your problem, your health goals, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can help you reach your full health potential.
After your consultation, Dr. Stanton will perform a complete and complex 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.
Digital X-Ray Studies
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for a series of digital x-rays as well. Digital x-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions if one is present. Most people are astonished once they see their digital x-rays up close. In most cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
After all the important information is collected and examinations are performed, we 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, goals, and examining your spine and digital X-rays, we will discuss recommendations, treatment options, and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Stanton will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.
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.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will recommend a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first arrived in our office this could include: cryotherapy or heat application instructions, certain tasks or positions to avoid, and an at home exercises and/or stretching protocol. If you desire, our wellness team will work diligently with you 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. We are always ready and committed to help you achieve and maintain a wonderful healthy lifestyle at Twisted Spine and Joint Center.
