What to Expect

As a clinic dedicated to helping others achieve optimal health and wellness, our goals are not only to address the issues that brought you to this office, but to also offer you the opportunity of improved overall health and wellness. We look forward to helping you achieve a greater quality of life today!!

Patient Forms

Upon entering our office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you fill our new patient intake forms. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.

aboutConsultation & Examination

Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Joseph Albert to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. After your consultation, Dr. Albert will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your ranges of motion as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations.

X-Ray Studies

On occasion, your specific condition may require us to refer you for x-rays to get a full evaluation of a patient. Dr. Albert has X-ray privileges with CML health which is located in the Doctor’s buildings on Queen and East streets. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Report of Findings

Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Albert will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions:
• Can you help me?
• What do you recommend that I do to get better?
• How much is it going to cost?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Albert will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If he believes we can help you, we will begin treatment and recommend a wellness program.

Treatment

Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, acupuncture, and/or Active Release Techniques. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.

Personal Responsibility

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on a program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized plan. Chiropractic is not simply something that is done TO you but also WITH you. By taking responsibility for your health and working together with the doctor you improve your chances of healing and becoming stronger. The foundation of our optimal health and wellness is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
