Upon entering our 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.
Next, you will have a consultation with Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac 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 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, Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac 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 and X-rays, Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Chris DeMartini & Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac 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, 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.
Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac. holds a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture is an ancient Eastern complete medical system that restores balanced function of the body as a whole. Small needles strategically inserted into the body along specific channels encourage proper blood circulation and facilitate the release of chemical mediators which accelerate healing, reduce pain and resolve inflammation. The results include faster recovery from injuries, a more robust and balance immune response, better stress tolerance as well as improved cognition and other neurological functions. Ultimately all of these benefits result in better health in general and better performance in competition and in life.
At California Neurohealth we believe that healing begins with the relationship one has with their provider. We encourage all people who are interested in knowing more about our practice to come in for a free 30 minute consultation. At the consultation we will listen to and talk with you to find out what you are looking for and how we might be able to help you. Our intention is to empower people with a plan of action to achieve their health goals.
