Our office is located inside the prestigious Sky Fitness in Buffalo Grove, IL. Upon entering the health club, stop by the front desk to pick up the initial intake information from our receptionist. The receptionist will hand you an iPad or paper forms for you to fill out. You can also fill out our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Once your information has been entered into the iPad, we ask you please hand it back to the receptionist. You will then be shortly met by the doctor to begin your new patient appointment!
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Daniel Satinsky to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Daniel Satinsky to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Daniel Satinsky will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may request to take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Other imaging modalities such as MRI and Ultrasound may also be requested depending on the case and situation. Imaging is not done on-site and will be referred out to a local imaging center.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Daniel Satinsky 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?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine or other joints of the extremity, Dr. Daniel Satinsky will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Daniel Satinsky will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, acupuncture, kinesiology taping, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor 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 also to 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, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
