What does a patient expect when seeing a chiropractor? 

What do patients expect when they see a chiropractor?  An article titled – Expectations of chiropractic treatment: what are the expectations of new patients consulting a chiropractor, and do chiropractors and patients have similar expectations? – published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics sought to answer this question.  A survey was conducted with 30 chiropractors and 336 patients from 17 private practices.  The results found that “chiropractors and patients expected the chiropractor to find the problem and explain it to the patients, and they also expected patients to feel better and become free of symptoms.”  Essentially, being able to diagnose and treat the problem, as well as effectively communicate with patients were important expectations.

The research results found being able to diagnose and treat the problem, as well as effectively communicate with patients were important expectations. 

How important is patient communication at Chiro-Med S.C.?

“As a chiropractor for the past 36 years and the owner of Chiro-Med S.C., I know good patient communication is essential for the best clinical outcomes and patient experience,” said Dr. James Ropicky.  “Every chiropractor at Chiro-Med takes a proper medical history, performs a physical examination, and uses proper diagnostics to arrive at an accurate diagnosis for the problem or condition.  This diagnosis is then used to determine only the necessary treatment.  All patients receive a written and oral report of findings, as well as an explanation of their insurance benefits or payment options.  We want every patient to be well informed and to ask questions because we strive to
develop a professional, trusting patient relationship.”

What can I expect as a new patient at Chiro-Med S.C.?

When you choose a chiropractor at Chiro-Med S.C. you will find 5-Star Quality patient care protocols are followed to ensure effective communication occurs by following six steps.

Step 1:  Provide information about condition and yourself
The chiropractor needs general information about your condition and you.  The brief patient forms are easy to complete, yet very important as the first step in the process.

Step 2:  Meet with the chiropractor & communicate
Communication between the chiropractor and the patient are absolutely essential at this step.  The chiropractor will review your patient information and learn why you are seeking chiropractic care.  Your medical, social, and family history will be discussed.  Most importantly, you will be able to ask questions throughout this evaluation process.

Step 3:  Diagnose condition
To diagnose the problem you are experiencing, the chiropractor will conduct a brief physical and orthopedic examination, followed by a series of X-rays concerning the area of complaint. The X-rays are necessary (unless the X-rays are provided to Chiro-Med prior to your appointment) to diagnose your condition.

Step 4:  Begin treatment
After the examination and diagnostic tests are completed, you will begin your chiropractic treatment based on the chiropractor’s recommendations. This treatment may include physical therapy modalities and chiropractic adjustments.

Step 5:  Engage in more communication about at-home instructions
Prior to leaving, the chiropractor will provide recommendations about at-home instructions, if needed. These instructions may include ice and/or heat applications, exercises, or avoidance of certain activities and positions.

Step 6:  Explain treatment approach for your specific condition
The chiropractor will formulate and explain your individualized treatment plan based on your specific condition. The Front Desk Staff Member will then schedule your next visit to follow up with the doctor for best results, if an additional appointment is needed.
