A detailed initial examination is part of what distinguishes Advanced Spinal Fitness as a state-of-the-art spinal correction facility. It is of the utmost importance to our doctors to have a thorough and complete picture of the condition of your spine and nervous system before beginning treatment. The care given at ASF is not “cookie cutter”. A detailed exam reveals the particular traits of your spine and your condition, and treatment is tailored specifically for you.
What to Expect on Your First Visit
During an initial visit for a new patient appointment, the doctor will perform a hands-on examination, which may include the following:
Getting Your Results
Your doctor will present the results of your exam in a detailed manner. At the onset of care, a patient will be given additional information about the following:
At this time, your doctor will also answer any questions you may have about the results or the treatment process.
A Functional Nutrition initial visit at ASF involves a detailed and thorough combination of history taking and physical examination.
Prior to your first nutrition visit, you will be emailed an extensive questionnaire regarding your body and its symptoms and tendencies. It is easiest to complete this questionnaire digitally before you arrive for your appointment. If you forget, or don’t have convenient digital access, you may fill out a paper questionnaire when you arrive, but it is a substantial form, so please leave adequate time to complete it before your appointment time. This information forms the foundation of the doctor’s understanding of your health situation.
At your visit, the doctor will speak with you extensively about your health concerns, goals, history, and current situation. Next, a ZYTO Biosurvey will be performed, which provides detailed information about the functioning, sensitivities, and needs of your body via high-tech galvanic response analysis.
Find out more about the ZYTO Biosurvey here. The doctor will then use the ZYTO and history information to confirm your individualized care plan using hands-on Muscle Testing techniques.
Based on this thorough workup, a custom plan for diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations will be created, including any referrals for any additional testing, if needed.
Plan approximately one and a half hours for this visit.
Chiropractic New Patient History Forms
Once you have scheduled your new patient examination, you may choose to print the basic history form for either adults or pediatric (ages 5 and under) and bring the completed form to the ASF office to get ahead for your first visit. For children over 5, please use the adult form.
