If you're a first time visitor at Buckley Chiropractic, 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 have insurance coverage, please bring your insurance cards with you to your appointment. We will submit the paperwork directly to your insurance company. If you are unsure if you have coverage, we would be happy to assist you in researching your coverage. Click here for a list of insurance plans that we accept.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to 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 order x-rays, MRI's or CT's to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in assessing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
Before leaving, you may 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.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the process. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit.
