Upon entering our Rincon, Georgia office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with Matthew Hamby to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Matthew Hamby to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations, so together, you can determine how chiropractic care can help you meet your goals.
After your consultation, Matthew Hamby will perform a complete chiropractic examination designed to test your reflexes and flexibility. In addition, neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well to help Dr. Matthew Hamby and his staff learn how to best serve you; however, nothing will be done in our Rincon office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, Dr. Matthew Hamby may take X-rays. X-rays help Dr. Matthew Hamby develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert Dr. Matthew Hamby of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degenerations themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Matthew Hamby will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost be?
After reviewing your health history, goals, X-rays, and spine Matthew Hamby will discuss recommendations and begin treatment suited to meet your needs.
At the conclusion of the initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, Dr. Matthew Hamby will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at-home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you to help create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique; therefore, everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, enjoy a healthy diet, benefit from regular exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
