On your first visit you will be asked to complete an intake form which will include your health concerns, health history, and office
policies which will require your signature.
You will then have a consultation with the doctor where you will be given the opportunity to ask questions and share your health concerns and relevant history.
The doctor will proceed with relevant exam procedures to help identify the cause of your complaints and rule out any contraindications to chiropractic care.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us 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, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Joshua Pollack will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Joshua Pollack will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Joshua Pollack will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
Once you and the doctor have agreed on the best approach to your care you will receive one or several chiropractic
adjustments. Sessions may include the use of adjusting tools as well as massage and physical therapy modalities.
After your session you will rest in a zero-gravity lounge chair to better integrate your adjustment to your nervous system or enjoy a stretch on a traction table.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. 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 state.
