Upon entering the office, you will be requested to complete new patient forms (if you want, you can access these forms now in the New Patient Center section of this website and complete them at home). This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. David Trimboli to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. David Trimboli to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. David Trimboli will perform a complete chiropractic examination. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. You're welcome to have someone with you during the exam, and as always, nothing will be done in the office without your consent. Should you need X-Rays, they will be performed at a local radiology facility, where they will be reviewed by board certified medical radiologists (you will also be given your X-Rays and written radiology report to keep for your records).
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Trimboli will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you may hve, 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 (if needed), Dr. Trimboli will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.
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 techniques. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized plan. The purpose of a wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
