Following your initial call to our office Martha will mail or you may download the “Medical Intake Questionnaire” and a “New Client Letter”. You will fill out the Medical Intake Questionnaire and read and sign the New Client Introduction Letter and bring them with you to your first appointment. You will always be reminded of your appointment in advance.

New Client Letter                  Medical Intake Questionnaire

After a cordial introduction and greeting, I will review and discuss with you all relevant aspects of your “Medical Intake Questionnaire” and the reason for the appointment. I want to know, in your words, what problems you are having, when they started, what might have caused the problem and the extent to which they affect your daily life and activities. I will want to know about all accidents, surgeries, injuries, medications, and physical therapy or Chiropractic care, if any. In addition, I will want to know about the foods you eat, beverages (this includes water, coffee, juices, soda, alcohol) you consume, any prescription medication, and all of the vitamins or supplements you take. The first thing we typically do is kind-of-like when the car mechanic hooks your car up to a computer to tell him how all of the cars systems are working and where to look to begin to trouble shoot. The most advanced teacher for the Erchonia Low Level Cold Laser (Dr. Jerome Rerucha) has taught us this technique for people. We will usually conduct five quick checks; that take about 5 – 10 minutes. We believe this is incredibly important. Without these checks of the brain and nervous system we are taught that both what we see and what we might do could be irrelevant. These tests will both tell us the extent of the problem and allow us to begin to change the deficiencies we find.

The Tests

- Conduct specific tests to ensure the client is testable and not switched. Without this test (1) it is not possible to interpret what the client’s structural and functional issues are and (2) it is not possible to make accurate and meaningful plans for the session and series. It is as though the brain does not receive accurate and complete afferent nerve information about all of the things going on in the body. In most cases this leads to the client’s report of pain or dysfunction in one place which turns out to be incorrect and irrelevant. And the absence of this information precludes the brain from ordering correct efferent nerve firings of muscles, etc. This is terribly important. I sometimes say to the client that the brain is trying to figure out what’s going on by looking in a kaleidoscope. - Conduct specific tests to determine if the brain’s command and control over the left and right sides of the body (as controlled by the cortex and opposite side cerebellum) is functioning at the highest level. We usually find that most people with a condition that warrants an appointment will have a weaker cerebellum and a weaker cortex; attributing to an uneven distribution of motor control, strength and balance. Imagine how important these concepts are for balancing the teeter-totter of the neck, shoulders, back, low back, hips and legs. - Conduct specific tests to determine if balance exists between sympathetic and parasympathetic cranial nerves or more plainly, if there is a balance of calmness and excitability in the cranial nerves that regulate all our senses and most of the organs. We are taught that healing is not possible in the presence of sympathetic domination and/or parasympathetic depression. We always begin with a check of Cranial Nerve X, the Vagus nerve. - Conduct specific tests to determine a person’s tendencies regarding the pattern of tilt of the hips and the shift of their legs with respect to their tilt. This drives our logic regarding where places are out of pattern and how that relates to their “issues”. We like to show you in a mirror, what we see and what it means. - Last we conduct a test to determine your gait. This is a “timing” issue of muscle firing sequences. When you walk (or move) the nerves that fire the muscles that activate a movement have to be accompanied by a nervous system signal that inhibits muscles that work in opposition to the movement. Effortless movement, peak performance, and free-of-pain movement has to have this phenomena of the inhibition occurring. It is probably the most important underling cause in structural and functional problems and why they both exist and resist change. Assuming we do our best work to get your body back in alignment and create strength in muscles to support that change; the change will not last so long as the inhibition factor does not occur. This is the only test and response that we cannot address at the beginning of the session because it depends on a great deal of work being done on the person’s structure and function. Somewhere around the sixth session we try to incorporate this project into the session objectives.
