Upon entering our Kalamazoo chiropractic office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. Either Mandi or Lesley will greet you and go over the paperwork with you. The paperwork provides Dr.Vahue with general information about yourself and your condition. To save time, you may download the paperwork, print, fill out and bring in with you on your first visit!
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options at our Kalamazoo Chiropractic office.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, Dr. Jonathan Vahue will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and Dr. Vahue provides them with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
