Please check any present conditions that your child has now or in the past.
If NONE, leave blank.
I certify that I have read and understand the above information to the best of my knowledge. The above questions have been accurately answered. I understand that providing incorrect information can be dangerous to my child's health.
I, the undersigned, have voluntarily requested that the Doctors and/or other providers at Well Set assist me in the management of my child’s health concerns. I understand and agree to all policies and terms provided in the office policies and producers.
Chiropractic healthcare is predominantly concerned with the relationship between structure (primarily of the spine) and function (primarily of the nervous system). The Doctor of Chiropractic evaluates the patient using standard examination and testing procedures (such as orthopedic and neurologic evaluation and possibly x-rays) along with specialized chiropractic evaluation including observation, inspection, auscultation, and palpation. The chiropractic examination focuses on structural or functional abnormalities called “segmental dysfunction”.
Segmental dysfunction exists when one or more vertebra in the spine or bones in the extremity are fixated sufficiently to result in damage or irritation to either nearby nerves, joints, and/or tissues such as muscles and ligaments. The primary goal of chiropractic treatment is to remove the fixation. This is accomplished by performing a procedure unique to chiropractic, called an adjustment. An adjustment involves the application of a quick, precise force directed over a very short distance to a specific vertebra or bone. Adjustments are usually performed by hand, but may include a hand-guided instrument. Additionally, other treatments used by chiropractors include physiotherapy modalities (ice, heat, soft tissue manipulation), nutritional recommendations and rehabilitative procedures.
As is the case with all health care interventions, the benefits of care must be weighed against the inherent risks and limitations of receiving treatment. Chiropractic treatments are one of the safest interventions available to the public as evidence by malpractice statistics. While there are risks involved with treatment, these are seldom great enough to contraindicate.
A large part of our treatment involves manual therapy performed by hand or using instruments. Manual therapy is generally performed to increase range of motion, reduce scar tissue and/or treat sprains and strains. Some common side effects of manual therapy include soreness and bruising.
I understand that there are beneficial effects associated with these treatment procedures including decreased pain, improved mobility and function, and reduced muscle spasm. However, I understand there is no certainty that I will achieve these benefits. I realize that the practice of medicine, as well as chiropractic has limitations and I acknowledge that no guarantee has been made to me regarding the outcome of these procedures. I agree to the
procedures by my doctor/provider and such other persons of the doctor’s choosing.
Please answer the following questions below by checking YES or NO. These questions help us determine possible risk factors:
A thorough health history and physical examination will be performed on my child to minimize the risk of any complications from treatment and I freely assume these risks.
I have read or have had read to me the above explanation of chiropractic treatment. The doctor has also asked me if I want a more detailed explanation, but I am satisfied with the explanation and do not want any further information. I have made the decision voluntarily and freely. To attest to my consent to these examinations and treatment procedures of my child, I hereby affix my signature to this informed consent document.
Well Set is an out-of-network provider with all health insurance companies. It is your responsibility to verify if you have out-of-network benefits before your first appointment. If needed, Well Set can teach you how to check your out-of-network benefits. Payment is due at the time of service. If I choose to use my out-of-network benefit, I authorize and request my insurance company to pay directly to Well Set, the insurance benefits that are otherwise payable to me. I understand that my chiropractic insurance carrier may cover only a portion of, or not cover all of the services rendered. I agree to be ultimately responsible for all costs for services rendered and that they are payable when services are rendered.
We require a minimum of 24-hours notice to cancel or reschedule all new patient chiropractic appointments and for all PT and massage appointments (new and follow-up). We also require at least 2 business hours notice before follow-up chiropractic appointments. To better serve all of our patients and ensure that they have a fair opportunity to have an appointment as promptly as possible, please observe our cancellation policy for all appointments.
No shows / late cancels will be billed at half the price for the first missed appointment for all massage appointments, chiropractic, and PT, and full price for any subsequent missed appointments.
I understand that I may request and review the privacy practice for Well Set and understand the situations in which this practice may need to utilize or release my medical records.
