Getting Started With Your Patient Care
The first thing you will experience at Elmsford Chiropractic Health & Wellness Center is a warm welcome into our office. We will make sure you know what to expect during your visit with us and do everything we can to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed in our care.
The first step during your initial visit with us is completing the new patient paperwork, this can be done in office or you can download it from our website, complete it at home and then bring it with you when you come in for your first appointment.
When your paperwork is filled out, we will give you a tour of our facility and then show you to our consultation and exam room, which is where you will meet with the doctors and discuss your health history, current complaints and how chiropractic care can benefit you.
After your initial consultation and all of your questions have been answered, the doctors will perform a full chiropractic evaluation, which includes: orthopedic and neurological testing, postural evaluation, computerized nerve scans and x-rays (if needed).
The final step is to schedule you for another visit, it can be the same day or another day, but the goal is to schedule your next visit as soon as possible so you can see your results and start care as soon as possible.
During Your Second Visit
At your second visit, we will review your information and test results with you. We will also give you a full report of our findings. This means you will be told the details of your problem, how we will be able to help you, the duration of your care plan and what your insurance will cover and any extra costs involved. Before moving forward with any care, we will make sure you are fully informed and are content with the plan we have laid out for you. This way you will be able to move forward feeling informed and completely aware of what is going to happen over the course of your treatment plan.
Also, we highly recommend you bring a friend or a loved one to your appointment with you, because we will be giving you a lot of information and have someone come with you to hear the information can be a huge help.
Three Phases Of Care
Our approach to overall wellness takes place in three phases of chiropractic care.
Phase 1. The first stage is the beginning and it is the intensive phase when you are in pain. During this initial phase, we want to relieve your pain. We will see you more frequently to help get the pressure and relieve stress off your nervous system and help get your spine moving. Once your pain has been relieved, we go to the next phase.
Phase 2. This phase is for corrective care. This means we will work together to correct, strengthen and stabilize your spine, which will get you ready for phase 3.
Phase 3. Our final phase is about ensuring your health through a lifetime wellness plan. We will work with you to discuss what your wellness plan looks like and how it will fit into your lifestyle.
We would love to answer any questions you might have about how we can help you function at your very best. Call us today! (914) 345-6700
