Paperwork is a requirement of today’s healthcare. Our office goal is to keep paperwork to a minimum.
Consultation Dr. Zaycosky will take a history from you about your current problem for which you are seeking care. This is in addition to a general history about your state of health.
Examination A detailed examination of the area of complaint will be performed. Most exams take place while the patient is fully clothed. The best type of clothes to wear to the initial exam are loose fitting pants (sweat pants) and shirt (tee shirt).
X-ray An x-ray study may be conducted. The need for the x-rays test is based on the information gathered during the first part of the visit. If you have a recent imaging study (X-ray, CT, MRI) please feel free to bring them to the initial visit.
Treatment is typically given on the initial visit.
Depending on the condition a follow-up visit will be scheduled.
Report of Findings will be given. The report will include a review of the examination findings and x-rays if they were taken. A detailed explanation of the problem will be given. The treatment approach will be thoroughly explained. A time frame to address the complaint will be outlined.
Dr. Zaycosky has been a licensed chiropractor since 1984. His approach in treatment has developed from two sources. The first is the scientific literature which constantly publishes the best methods to treat a given problem. This information changes over time. The second is his personal experience in treating thousands of patients with a multitude of complaints and injuries. Here are some of the things he’s learned:
- Home exercises help people get well faster and stay better longer though physical limitations may prevent some patients from exercising.
- The more complicated a problem the greater need to re-assess the condition during the treatment course to see if what you’re doing is working.
- A treatment that works with one patient’s problem may not work as effectively with a patient who appears to have a similar problem.
- Not all patients are candidates for regular chiropractic treatment, though some patients because of structural problems in the spine or lifestyle do benefit from regular adjustments.
