Upon entering our office, our Chiropractic Assistants will welcome you as a member of our family. Patrice and Cheryl have both been with our office for several years and will be awaiting your arrival to our office! We do request that you complete our new patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. If you do not have these filled out prior to your appointment, we may need to reschedule your visit. Also, please watch the "Introduction to NUCCA" video located at http://www.nucca.org/intro.htm to save some time in the office.
We offer complimentary consultations with Dr. Olszewski. You will be able to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This consultation is designed for Dr. Olszewski to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Lisa will perform a complete chiropractic exam, as well as a wellness based history to determine your personal health and wellness goals. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may take 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 (subluxations) and degeneration/decay themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed on the first visit, Dr. Lisa will go through your tests and give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
This report is done on the second visit. You are always welcome to bring someone along on this visit to hear your report. After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Olszewski will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Olszewski will provide the best chiropractic and wellness program for your needs.
Following the Report of Findings, Dr. Olszewski will preform a chiropractic adjustment on your spine. Chiropractic adjustments are done on specific areas of your spine (subluxations) to realign the structure. Dr. Olszewski utilizes the gentle NUCCA technique on the top bone of the spine, also known as the atlas. There is no twisting, cracking or popping that one may associate with a traditional chiropractic adjustment.
Throughout your care in the office, Dr. Lisa constantly gives suggestions to add to your current wellness program to help you reach your health goals. 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. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
Dr. Lisa's goal is to help you become healthier-- and stay healthy! Dr. Lisa's Wellness Workshops are done on a monthly basis and are completely complimentary to the members of our practice. Ask us for more details!
