Your First Visit

Patient Forms

Upon entering our Monroeville Chiropractor office, our receptionist will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you complete our  patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Brent Shealer to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Brent Shealer to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how Chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Brent Shealer will perform a complete 66 test Chiropractic examination testing your range of motion. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent. We not only want to determine what is wrong, we also want to determine if Chiropractic care can even help you.


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 of  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 degeneration themselves.


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Brent Shealer will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. What is wrong and how can you help me?
  2. How often and how long do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Brent Shealer will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Brent Shealer  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  Treatment is interactive, so  you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Wellness Program

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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been coming to see Dr. Brent since October 2011, and just after a few adjustments he had me feeling better than ever. I was experiencing severe back pain mostly in my lower back and my hips also were giving me a lot of pain. I can now work every day and not experience the pain that I used to when I would bend over to grab something. Since I work as a CNA I am always moving around, I am glad now that I can do that without pain. When I started coming to see Dr. Brent he had told me that my spine needed some adjusting and that my hips were off. I would come to see him a couple days a week and since then has helped me so much. I am now seeing him every month for a normal checkup. I am glad that I came to Dr. Brent and I will continue to come monthly for my normal adjustments."

  • "I have been experiencing pain in my legs, middle back and lower buttocks for about 2 years now. Having this pain interferes with me doing my everyday routines like walking and standing for long periods of time. I was referred to Dr. Brent by my niece, who has been seeing him for a couple of years. When I went for my first visit we talked about my past and he had told me that my pain was because my pelvis was out of place. He had recommended that I come in for adjustments a couple times a week. Chiropractic care is helping me more than anything, I experience less pain now whenever I walk or stand. I also have more back strength then I had before. I am glad that I was recommended to Dr. Brent and I will continue to come in for normal adjustments a couple times a week."
