Welcome to Community Chiropractic
We want to help make this process as easy and wonderful as it can be. If you are coming to the office for the first time, your first visit will last approximately half an hour. We will review your history, perform an evaluation, and if necessary, refer you for x-rays. We will discuss with you how we can help you and explain every process.
How to Begin
Please call 978.448.WELL (9355) to speak to our new patient advocate and schedule a time to come in.
We ask that you bring any recent x-rays, MRIs, or CAT Scans that are related to any spinal problems you may be suffering from. Please click the appropriate link next section and complete the intake to the best of your knowledge, Dr Steve will discuss any other concerns you may have that are not contained in these forms. Please arrive to the exam 10 minutes early so that we can process your paperwork. We always run on time, so be sure to have your paperwork and insurance information prepared and available before you arrive. Thank you for your participation in our schedule.
New Patient Appointment
Upon entering our office, we will help you to get settled. You will complete any additional paperwork, if needed and provide your insurance information.
First, you will have a consultation with the doctor 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 doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your spinal health. Some of the tests utilized are:
- Weight bearing test
- Computerized postural assessments
- Range of motion evaluation
- Motion palpation
- Flexion and lateral flexion adverse cord and connective tissue assessment
Depending on your specific condition, we may refer you for x-rays. These can help us develop the most effective care plan for you and alert us if there are any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify a misalignment or degeneration themselves.
We do not automatically x-ray every patient.
Receiving Care In Our Office:
At the conclusion of the first visit, you will receive your first spinal adjustment. People in our office are amazed at how gentle and effective these manipulations feel. Some adjustments use the same amount of force that you would use to squeeze a tomato. Other times, they require the use of a specific tool that provides exact vectors to correct nerve blockages. The chiropractic care in our office involves highly specialized training and is custom tailored to each person. We offer care to newborn babies all the way up to our eldest patient.
Follow Up Appointment
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit, usually within a week or as your schedule allows. During this follow-up visit, the doctor will give you a detailed report on your spine and answer questions like:
- Can we help you?
- How often do you need to come in?
- What will my care cost?
We have many payment options available and accept several forms of insurance, health savings plans, flexible spending accounts and Visa/MasterCard/Discover/AMEX. We keep our rates competitive!
