Upon entering our office, Belen and Silvia will welcome you as a member of our family. After completing the necessary forms, Dr. Walsh and/or Dr. Du will sit down with you for a no charge consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctors will perform a complete chiropractic examination that may include a sEMG computerized nerve scan, neurological & orthopedic exams, and postural tests. This will help the doctors understand what is going on with your spine and nervous system, and determine if chiropractic can help you! However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take digital X-rays as well. X-ray images help the doctors develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, the doctors will be able to identify the misalignment patterns and degeneration stages for you.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, the doctors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
1. Can you help me?
2. Is this a chiropractic problem?
3. How often do I need to come in?
4. How much will it cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, the doctors will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctors will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At Walsh Chiropractic, the doctors use spinal adjusting techniques that include manual and drop table adjustments as well as advanced techniques to adjust the spine. The spinal adjustments are tailored to each individual's condition and preference. We also offer the newest types of therapeutic laser treatment if necessary.
If the patient is interested, the doctors will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of chiropractic care. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at-home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also 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 attitude.
