What To Expect
Your First Visit
You can complete your paper work on-line, bring in the completed forms, or fill them out in the office. Dr. Maloof will review your health information before he meets with you. Prior to performing a chiropractic examination, Dr. Maloof will further discuss your history and develop an in-depth understanding of the condition that brought you to the office.
If a vertebral subluxation is found during the chiropractic exam, Dr. Maloof will recommend that x-rays be taken. Atlas Orthogonal requires a thorough analysis of spinal bones which allows for precision light force correction, unlike traditional chiropractors. This is the main difference between Dr. Maloof and other chiropractors. The spinal correction determined by exacting measures are as individual to the patient as their fingerprint.
Before you leave, we will schedule a follow up appointment with Dr. Maloof for you to receive the results of the exam. You will be sent home with a video or DVD that will provide information about the technology and science of Atlas Orthogonal (AO). Viewing the video will help orient you for your first adjustment.
Your Second Visit
On your second visit, Dr. Maloof will give a report of his findings that include the results of your examination and x-ray findings. Your second visit will typically require about 30 minutes.
You are encouraged to bring your spouse or partner with you on your second visit so that they can understand the natureof your condition.
Dr. Maloof will be happy to answer any and all of your questions.
The four most common questions are:
- Can Dr. Maloof help me?
- Does the treatment hurt? (With the Atlas Orthogonal method, the answer is always no.)
- How long will the treatment period last?
- How much will it cost?
If it is determined that Dr. Maloof can help you with chiropractic care, you will be accepted as a patient and receive you first atlas orthogonal adjustment using the atlas orthogonal percussion instrument.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, which involve a thorough examination and specific x-rays, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
This is not so. A typical office visit may require just five to ten minutes. But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.
We will not try to duplicate what has failed you before. We do not treat symptoms. We locate and correct the cause of your health problem. By removing the misalignments that put pressure on delicate nerves, adjustments restore your body’s ability to heal itself.
We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
