Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist 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.

Consultation

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

After your consultation, your doctor 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.

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, your doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

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

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your doctor  will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Shaver and Dr. Gullo 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.

New Patients 

When you walk into Shaver Chiropractic & Natural Medicine, you will immediately feel at home in our beautifully designed facility. Our welcoming team keeps a friendly, professional environment that will put you at ease. The necessary paperwork for new patients can be completed online.

The First Day

You will meet with the doctor to have a consultation, discussing what has brought you in. We will do a thorough examination, including digital x-rays taken on site. In total, this visit takes about an hour.

The Second Day

When you return, our doctors will present a report of their findings. The doctors will show you your x-rays and provide a written report with explanation and recommendations.

Subsequent Visits

We will get you in and out quickly with little no wait. These appointments take about 15-20 minutes.


GETTING YOU BACK TO YOUR LIFE

Many people have heard the myth that if they start chiropractic care, they have to be a patient for life. At our practice, we only recommend lifelong care to those who have lifelong problems. We have witnessed the benefits of ongoing care and many people in our office choose to see us regularly. It is not a requirement, however, and the amount or frequency of visits we recommend is tailored to you.

Just think: most would consider it normal to take medication for diabetes, blood pressure and other issues for the rest of their lives. Why should periodic adjustments to keep you healthy seem so out of the ordinary?
