Whole-body healthcare, unlike you’ve ever experienced before
On your first visit a lot needs to happen. Due to the comprehensive nature of our first visit, please allow for at least 45 minutes. Our Doctors want to understand why you are at our office. We want you to fully understand how we can help and answer all of your questions. We will spend as much time with you as you need in order to help you feel comfortable about your health care decisions.
Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a new member of our family. We will request that you complete our chiropractic new patient forms located under the “Patient Forms” link. You can save about 15 minutes by downloading the initial patient forms from our site. You can fax email the paperwork, or have filled it out at home and give it to the receptionist upon entering. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Click here for printable patient forms.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Zac or Dr. Morgan. The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if Chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify where we need to work.
After your consultation, the doctor will discuss what testing and examinations must be performed in order to determine what can be done to help you. The doctor will discuss all further treatments to ensure that you are comfortable with what will be done. Nothing will be done in our office to you without your consent and full understanding; your wellbeing is our first concern.
If we determine that you are likely to benefit from our care, we can usually get started right away. The Doctor will perform a complete examination which may include other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests. All of this testing is to determine the CAUSE of your problems and how our office can help. Throughout the consultation and exam we strive to communicate effectively, so you can more fully participate in your care. You are a partner and the most important member of this team!
X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions such as lateral spinal curves, loss of the neck curve, and spinal decay.
Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Full Spine X-rays are utilized at Sycamore Integrated Health in order to visualize the entire spine as a whole.
At the conclusion of your first visit Dr. Sheedy will schedule you for your 2nd visit. At this point we should have answered all your questions and made you feel comfortable with your upcoming decisions. The doctor will not adjust you on the 1st visit.
It is extremely important that Dr. Zac and Dr. Morgan review your case, go over your x-rays, and formulate a treatment plan for your specific diagnosis. Anything worth doing right is worth waiting for.
If you can, wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment. For your first visit, please plan your time to allow about 45 minutes in our office. We look forward to meeting you!
