What to Expect

1) Patient Forms

FormsUpon 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 Patients menu. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. You will also be asked to sign a consent form giving Dr. Vicari the right to exam and treat you. After you have completed the required forms, you will first be given a foot scan, which indicated how balanced you are as to weight-bearing on your feet. Next you will be given an EMG Scan, which graphs muscle contraction and central nerve irritation.

2) Consultation

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

3) Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Denise Vicari 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.

4) Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Denise Vicari will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions you might have. You will also be given copies of your scans to take with you.
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Denise Vicari will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Denise Vicari will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.

5) Treatment

At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.

6) 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.
