What to Expect
On your first visit to Bloomsburg Family Chiropractic, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. Upon arrival, you will be asked to fill out some intake paperwork, detailing your current condition as well as past medical history. There are also office policy forms that you will need to review and sign as acknowledgment before receiving treatment. These forms can also be found at this link. Click Here
Dr. Ardo will review your medical history as well as your current complaint. She will also discuss your goals for treatment and your expectations of chiropractic care. Then, a thorough examination will be performed to diagnose your condition. This will include ranges of motion of any affected joints, palpation of the joints and muscles, orthopedic testing, neurological testing, and any other physical examination procedures applicable to your individual needs. Dr. Ardo will review the results of her examination with you, and discuss a potential treatment plan. This may also include lifestyle changes that can be made to further address the cause of the issue at hand. You will be given the opportunity to have any questions answered regarding your health, treatment, or alternative treatment options. Once you are satisfied with the answers to your questions, a treatment plan will be agreed upon. At that time, you can elect to begin treatment.
Established patient visits will consist of Dr. Ardo reviewing how you responded to the previous visit, discussing any changes to your health history or any necessary changes to your treatment plan, and then continuing treatment as prescribed.
