Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our patient forms and provide a picture ID and insurance information.  This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Examination

Dr. Melody A. Volk will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. You will also be asked to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options.

 


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may order 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. Melody A. Volk will give you a report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in? 

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Melody A. Volk will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Melody A. Volk  will  provide the best  treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor may 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.  The purpose of our wellness program is for you  to achieve good spinal alignment,  exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
