On your first visit to Peak Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Dr. Wolgin will go through a thorough examination and evaluation of your health concerns and problems. This information will provide Dr. Wolgin with a "blueprint" for the course of action he plans to take with your treatment.
To obtain the information needed for your personal "blueprint," Dr Wolgin will perform the appropriate orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic testing. The posture is the window to your spine. For this reason, a thorough postural analysis and range of motion testing will be done. The Doctor will check your spine for proper function and will in turn show you any areas where displacements and subluxations may be affecting your spine and over all health. The purpose of this examination is to determine whether chiropractic will be beneficial to you and how to proceed with your treatment.
If your preliminary exam indicates the need for x-rays to be taken, we will guide you through that process and have the x-rays read by a chiropractic radiologist. The Doctor will then go over the results of your exam and x-rays with you explaining in detail what these findings mean to you, your health, and your course of treatment. You will have as much time as you need to ask and have your questions answered.
REPORT OF FINDINGS
During the report the Doctor will go over the findings from your examination and testing and let you know if your case can be accepted for care. He will thoroughly explain any X-rays and findings and take as much time as you need to answer any questions or concerns. The doctor will let you know how long it will take to correct your problem, how often he will need to see you and how much money it may cost. At this time your doctor will go over his best recommendations with you.
TYPES OF CARE
Relief Care - the first phase of care focused on getting rid of pain.
Corrective Care - phase where we continue care to further correct your problem. During this phase, you are pain free, but continuing to work toward maximum correction and improve your body's function.
Maintenance Care - is when the problem has been corrected and the focus becomes maintaining results and further prevention. Maintenance is different for everyone.
The type of care you receive is up to you. The doctor's goal is to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for your own personal health care.
