The First visit
The first visit lasts approximately an hour and consists of three parts: the consultation, the evaluation and providing pain relief. The new patient intake forms are available online as well as in office.
During the consultation, you will sit one on one with Dr. Consales and discuss with him what brought you into the office and what you expect from Allied Health Systems. Dr. Consales will be focused on determining what the main areas of concern are and how he can help.
You will then enter the examination room. A complete orthopedic evaluation will be performed. This consists of a range of motion study, orthopedic testing, neurological testing and muscle testing. If Dr. Consales feels it is necessary you may be asked to have X-rays taken.
The last portion of your visit will be dedicated to providing pain relief, though not by means of chiropractic adjustment. We have different therapies we offer for pain relief including muscle stimulation and a class four laser. Dr. Consales doesn’t like to adjust on the first visit because he takes time to look over the information gathered from the consultation, evaluation and X-rays.
“It’s important for me to be absolutely sure that I understand what their case is so that I can correlate all the information and put together a report of findings,” says Dr. Consales.
The Second Visit
The second visit consists of two parts: the report of findings and the first adjustment.
You will again be welcomed into Dr. Consales’ office. If you are new to chiropractic, before going over your report of findings, Dr. Consales will review with you a model of the spine and help you visualize how chiropractic works. He will show you a comparison of how a healthy spine looks and how your spine looks at the time of the report.
You will then go over the report of findings. Dr. Consales will discuss with you where your pain is originating from, the avenues he suggests for relief, the importance of muscle balancing and maintenance care. If Dr. Consales feels that he can help you, he will then explain your care options and perform your first adjustment. The choice is always yours; Dr. Consales never forces anyone into a care plan.
Improving Your Nutrition
A large part of Allied Health Systems is dedicated to nutrition utilizing the groundbreaking approach of Nutrition Response TestingSM. Dr. Consales offers his chiropractic patients discounted Nutrition Response TestingSM and initial evaluations.
To promote internal healing your body needs to get the right nutrition.
