New Patient Info

Ironbridge Chiropractic Center of Chesterfield, Virginia

Information for First Time Patients

 

Patient Forms   

Upon entering our office our receptionist will greet you and welcome you as a member of our family.  You will be asked to complete our New Patient Forms which we can provide for you, or to speed up the process – you can print here and bring it with you to your appointment. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself, your health, and your condition allowing the Doctor and our team to best cater to your chiropractic needs.


Consultation  

After the chiropractic center paperwork is complete, you will have a consultation with Dr. Frank Pugh DC, FIAMA to discuss your health-related problems and concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Frank Pugh DC, FIAMA to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations – to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination 

After your consultation, Dr. Frank Pugh DC, FIAMA will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies  

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to get a full evaluation of your status as a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective chiropractic treatment plan for you.  Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration. It’s much different when you guess you have a problem, then when you actually see it right in front of you through an x-ray. The x-ray will help Dr. Frank Pugh determine the next best step in your recovery.


Treatment  

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

Ironbridge Chiropractic Care is determined to create a customized plan for each individual that helps patients live a healthy and whole, all natural life with a long term plan and goals.
