At Appalachian Chiropractic Wellness Center, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our customer experience.
Your first visit:
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment to allow time to complete some paperwork that will provide Dr. Crum important information about your medical history.
To save you some time, please download, fill out, and print the following forms prior to your initial visit. All new patients must fill out the 'New Patient Form'.
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident please also fill out the 'Motor Vehicle Accident Form'.
Following the intake paperwork and our gathering any insurance information, you can expect the following:
Dr. Crum will begin by asking questions, listening, and discussing the pain or discomfort you are feeling. This initial interview will cover your medical history, and explore the details of your chief complaint.
Dr. Crum will carefully examine the area of pain or discomfort in order to diagnose the problem. Expect a thorough examination. We want to help you achieve long term health. In order to avoid just treating symptoms your condition must be properly diagnosed with the help of a comprehensive examination.
Following the examination, Dr. Crum will discuss his diagnosis with you. He'll report what he has discovered during the examination and how those factors could be contributing to your current situation. Patients are encouraged to ask questions during their entire visit, but especially during this phase when the treatment plan is discussed. Patients who have not previously received chiropractic care can expect additional explanation from Dr. Crum to make sure they understand and are comfortable with the treatment he is recommending.
Dr. Crum practices Diversified Chiropractic, one of the most practiced methods of chiropractic care. Depending on your condition he may use any of the following therapy methods: Chiropractic manipulative therapy, massage, ice therapy, electro-therapy, therapeutic exercises/rehabilitation, supportive taping, ultrasound or if needed additional therapy options will be discussed.
Depending on your specific condition, Dr. Crum will also provide home care instructions and follow up recommendations to help you reach your goals. It is important to Dr. Crum that his patients understand what may have caused their condition and so he will offer recommendations to help prevent your condition from worsening or returning.
