Patient Forms

Upon entering our door Marilu or Jennie will greet and welcome you to our clinic.  We will request you complete some paperwork so we can best meet your needs. The paperwork provides us with important information about you, your condition, and how it affects your life. There are also a few of the mandatory HIPPA forms we are all used to seeing in healthcare facilities.  If possible, we will send you this paperwork to complete prior to your first visit in the comfort of your own home.  Please remember to bring a copy of your insurance card or information if we are billing any for you as well as your picture ID.  Directions to our clinic can be found on the Hours & Location tab above.


History and Consultation

Next Dr. Adich and you will discuss your health-related history, problems, and concerns.  Your first visit is designed for Dr. Adich to learn more about you, the details of your condition, how it is affecting your life, and your expectations from care.


Examinations

After your consultation Dr. Adich will perform a physical examination which includes testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, and other neurologic, orthopedic, and/or functional tests.

MyoVision 3G system
 

The Adich Clinic has joined a growing number of chiropractic clinics across the country that have upgraded their level of diagnostic ability and include a computerized spinal exam.  The MyoVision 3G system is a non-intrusive technology which was originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles of astronauts. The MyoVision 3G surface EMG system records the static and/or dynamic spinal muscle balance, tone and activity as well as accurately measures spinal range of motion.  More simply, this system measures the tension in your muscles at the different levels of the spine and the limitation in the different spinal motions in each direction. The system then graphs this information showing how far from the accepted normal you may be.  This analysis allows for increased accuracy in diagnosis, treatment, and results and provides an accurate baseline for your future progress.

The MyoVision Static sEMG Scan takes 90 seconds and is completely safe, painless and non-invasive. The MyoVision sEMG ScanVisions read the voltage that the muscles in your spine naturally emit. These readings look at the level of voltage and the patterns of directionality, which allows your healthcare professional to determine if your spine and nervous system are functioning optimally. 

MyoVision’s state-of-the-art equipment helps your doctor quickly and objectively identify areas of further concern and customize care based on your results. The results are a succinct way for both you and the doctor to monitor your progress. You have more than just an opinion; you have specific data in a computerized spinal report.

The MyoVision system was designed by NASA researcher David Marcarian, MA and has been the patient education tool of choice at colleges and healthcare clinics around the world for over 20 years.


X-Ray Studies

Your specific condition may require referring you to Mt. Baker Imaging for x-rays to help rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  This is not done routinely and is approached on a case by case basis.


Explanation of Findings

After the examination and testing is performed, Dr. Adich will explain his findings and answer your questions and concerns such as: 

  1. What is wrong?
  2. Can you help me?
  3. What do you recommend?

Chiropractic Care

After your examination and discussion of wha is wrong and how chiropractic care can help you, Dr. Adich will provide your first treatment.  Dr. Adich usually treats patients using the Impulse IQ adjusting instrument which is a state-of-the-art device and approach backed by extensive research.  He occasionally may incorporate manual techniques, drop table or Activator Methods if he feels it is more appropriate or requested.  He offers specific and effective treatments for disc injuries, peripheral nerve entrapments, headaches, different types of neck and back pain, and other conditions.  Chiropractic care restores proper motion of the joints and muscles and optimizes nervous system control.  A properly functioning nervous system is essential for a healthy body.  Chiropractic adjustments decrease pain and spasm, increase motion and circulation, and promote healing and performance. Chiropractic is also beneficial as wellness care, to improve health and the body's natural ability to resist disease and injury.


Supportive Care

Dr. Adich incorporates a variety of specialty techniques with your chiropractic adjustments.  Research has shown the most effective treatments for neck and back pain are chiropractic care(spinal manipulation) combined with exercise once movement is improved.  Dr. Adich completed a 3-year post-graduate course of study in spinal rehabilitation techniques.  When appropriate, he will teach you specific stretches and stabilization exercises to do at home or the gym.  He may also make lifestyle improvement suggestions to further the benefits of your care.  Our goal is to relieve your pain, restore your function, reduce the liklihood of recurrence, and create a healthier and more active you!
