If you're a first-time visitor at Natural Pain Management and Wellness, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A bit of paperwork
We will need to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork. If you would like to save some time and get a jumpstart on your paperwork before coming in, you can access the forms here.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays or other diagnostic imaging to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in assessing the most effective treatment plan for you.
A majority of our patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit after the examination and review of records are completed. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
