1| 1st Visit Overview
Our new patient process includes a detailed consultation, an advanced range of motion examination, digital motion x-rays & a doctor's report of findings with corrective care recommendations spread out over two preliminary visits. This process allows Dr. Mateo to personally review the details of your exam & x-rays to design a highly individualized care plan between those two appointments. Our process allows Dr. Mateo to be very thorough & to design a customized plan to deliver health results specific to you as quickly as possible.
2| Detailed Consultation
At Life Without Fear Chiropractic, Dr. Mateo does all of our new patient consultations. That's right you get quality time with a doctor on day 1. Dr. Mateo will address any concerns & questions you may have in regards to neurologically-based chiropractic care. We also don't accept every patient's case at Life Without Fear Chiropractic, we only accept the cases that we know we can confidently deliver results on. During your consultation, Dr. Mateo will review your health history, current quality of life health limitations & help you set specific health goals. We know it's hard to hit a fuzzy target & have seen patients who set specific health goals get the best health results.
3| Advanced Range of Motion Exam
& Digital Motion X-ray Imaging
The most important part of your 1st visit is your exam & x-rays. These diagnostic tools & technology will determine if the cause of your health problems are related to your spine & if Dr. Mateo has a solution that will help them. Dr. Mateo will perform specific range of motion testing to each joint & region of your spine.
Next, based on your consultation & exam findings, Dr. Mateo will determine what necessary digital motion x-rays are necessary for your spine & health goals. Once Dr. Mateo has specific x-rays of your spine he will know exactly which parts of your spine are contributing to your health problems & how long they have been there.
4| Dr. Mateo's Report of Findings
Dr. Mateo will review the specifics of your case, exam & x-ray findings in detail. This is a vitally important step in our process, research shows time & time again that patients who understand & have confidence in the care that they are receiving get better results than those who do not. This is why Dr. Mateo invests a lot of his time into designing a custom chiropractic corrective care plan for each of his patients. Also, if you make financial or health decisions with spouses or loved ones, it is vitally important that you bring them to this appointment so they can support you & understand your care.
