Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, you will be welcomed like a member of our family. We will request that you complete our new patient forms if you have not already done so. You can find them in the New Patient Center of our website. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition and makes sure everything is taken into account as far as your treatment is concerned.

 Next, you will have a consultation with either Dr. Donovan or Dr. White to discuss your  health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed  for the doctors to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations to create the  best care plan to meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, once it is decided that our clinic is the right place to begin your journey to wellness a complete examination will be performed. The doctors and our therapists will evaluate four areas of health with four different examinations:

  • Neuromuscular exam to test for nerve function weakness
  • Trigger point exam to determine the number of hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle
  •  Range of motion exam to test the patient's range of motion and its deviation from the norm
  • Orthopedic exam to test for joint function and weakness
All of these tests are non-invasive and relatively painless. As with all types of health care, nothing will be done without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us to 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. X-rays are done in our office by a certified X-ray technician. This cuts down on the time it takes for your films to be reviewed and also saves you a trip!


Report of Findings

Once your information is collected, examinations are performed, and X-rays, if needed, are taken, Dr. Donovan or Dr. White will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions, including:

  • What did you discover?
  • How can you help me?
  • What will my treatment plan include?

This is the best time to get all of your questions answered. You will have an active role in your treatment and we want you to have the most complete understanding of it possible. It is the goal of Atlantic Spinal Rehab and Wellness Clinic to provide you with the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
