Upon entering our office we will greet you and welcome you as a member of our practice. We will ask you fill our patient forms located in the New Patient Center or if not a copy will be provided for you in our office. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Pleas bring a copy of any medical records that you would like Dr. Glassman to review.
Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Glassman to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Glassman to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Glassman will perform a complete chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological examination testing your spinal bio-mechanics as well as the structure and function of your Nervous System. The purpose of the exam is to continue to collect more information about how well your body is or is not working.
Dr. Glassman may include in the examination a digital posture analysis as well a digital foot scan as show below
Digital Nerve Scan
Next we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology called the Insight Millennium. Use of this instrument is part of the objective analysis of the spine and nerve system. This instrument delivers a computerized image of the stress, tension and interference patterns (“stains”) on the nerve system. In order to receive an objective picture of your nerve system Surface Electromyography (sEMG) Scan measures the amount of current in the muscles along your spine. Vertebral subluxations disturb the function of the nerve system causing an abnormal amount of electrical current flowing to your muscles. The Symmetry scan identifies muscle imbalance caused by an abnormal amount of electrical current in the muscles on either side of the spine. The abnormal muscle pattern on the scan revels an increased amount of tension on one side compared to the other side.
This technology provides vital information for Dr. Glassman to help in the detection and correction of vertebral subluxations. As a result of this experience, the highest level of health possible may be within your reach
This tool will give a “snap shot” of the stress that is being experienced. So regardless of how good you feel, it can detect any hidden patterns of accumulated stress in your body. To better serve you, this Insight Millennium will help us detect nerve disturbance, document and monitor your progress, and give recommendations to the appropriate chiropractic care individual for you. To summarize, your body can be malfunctioning for months, even years, before you experience any symptoms. Since symptoms are always the last to show and first to go, it is important to monitor the function of your Nervous System.
X-Ray or MRI Studies
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays or an MRI to get a full evaluation of a patient. These tests help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they see their images and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves. If Dr. Glassman feels these further images are necessary, he can refer you to a local facility to have these services performed.
