Brief PaperworkUpon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. This paperwork provides us with your health history, your general information and specific information about your present condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with Dr. Volstad to discuss your health-related problems and concerns.
This consultation is designed for Dr. Volstad to learn more about you and your health issues.
History and ExaminationIn order to determine what your actual problem is, Dr. Volstad will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
X-ray StudiesYour specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Same Day TreatmentOnce finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Home InstructionsPrior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next AppointmentYou will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, we will see you within 1-2 days. During this visit, Dr. Volstad will sit down with you and give you a complete report of his findings and prescribed treatment. He will answer:
1. Can we help you?
2. How will we help you?
3. How often do you need to come in for treatment?
