Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you please fill out our Application for Care. For your convenience we have created this form online so that you may fill out a complete history in the comfort of your own home.  This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition and allows us to serve you thoroughly and time-efficiently.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Craig Nugent to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Craig Nugent to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Craig Nugent will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office  without your consent.


MyoVision Thermal Scanning

Myovision uses thermography which detects differences in temperature of your spine from side to side. This is displayed as a color coded bar graph showing the areas of interference in your spine. This state-of-the-art technology allows for precision in your spinal assessment.


X-Ray Studies

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 and degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Dr. Craig Nugent will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. What is the issue?
  2. How can you help me?
  3. How often do I need to come in?
  4. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Craig Nugent will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Craig Nugent  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Wellness Program

Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a  wellness program  to incorporate outside of treatment.  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.
