First of all, I would like to take a moment and thank you for considering our office for your care. We understand there are many health care practitioners you could have chosen, but we are delighted you have considered our office. We are committed to providing all our patients with the best service possible.
Upon entering Advanced Wellness Center, you will have some brief paperwork to fill out which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition. You can download these forms to fill out prior to entering the office.
Once the paperwork is complete you will sit down with Dr. Berry and he will then ask some specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. You will discuss your health related problems, concerns as well as potential treatment options. If Dr. Berry can help you, he will let you know. If he cannot help you, you will be referred to another doctor who can help. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
After a thorough consultation, you will have a complete chiropractic examination to determine what your actual problem is. This will include testing your ability to bend and turn, standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural and physical tests. These specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. This information will help Dr. Berry gain a better understanding of how chiropractic can help you.
X-rays are occasionally required to get a full evaluation of your condition. They may be needed to either rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. The need for x-rays is considered on a case-by-case basis. We refer our patients to a professinal imaging center located near our facility and no appointments are necessary. Your x-rays will be viewed by a medical radiologist and the images and reports are sent to Dr. Berry.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment.
Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our special gentle yet effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids and expectant mothers, yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be done at home or throughout the day. This may include ice or heat instruction, avoiding certain activities or positions as well as exercises and/or stretches.
