Upon arriving at Back in Balance, our admin team will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Brandy Grantham to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Brandy Grantham to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Brandy Grantham will perform posture and gait scans, a complete chiropractic examination, to determine if you have subluxations that may be causing your current dis-ease/condition. . Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
If required you may be referred back to your family physician to order imaging. If you have had X-rays or other imaging done recently, the doctor will review your films to 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 degree of degeneration. We will show you the condition of your spine during your Action Plan visit.
Recommended Action Plan
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Brandy Grantham will 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?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Brandy Grantham will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Brandy Grantham will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of the Recommended Action Plan appointment, you can choose to experience your first adjustment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can ask questions about the different styles of treatment anytime.
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.
