Patient Forms

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.


Consultation

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


Examination

After your consultation, Dr.  Lauterbach 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.

Computerized Surface EMG 

We have invested in non-invasive State of the art technology that will Objectively help us...

  • Detect areas of Nerve Disturbance or interference
  • Document and monitor your results and progress
  • Deliver the appropriate Chiropractic Care

Four important factors to consider before the tests are administered:

  • Do the Insight Millennium tests hurt? Absolutely not. There are no needles, electric shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Nervous System.
  • Why does the Chiropractor administer these tests? Our purpose is to detect and pinpoint abnormal nervous system function that is not seen on X-ray's or MRI's. These disturbances lead to subluxations and the Insight helps to locate areas of spinal dysfunction. The 3 tests used in my office are 1) SEMG- which measures muscle activity and the amount of electric current present, which looks at the motor system. 2) Thermography-measures skin temperature differences in the spine which measures the autonomic nervous system of the body. 3)Pulse Wave Profiler- measures heart rated variability, skin conductance, and pulse rate.
  • Why is it important to monitor the results? As a Chiropractor I want the best results for my patients Health and Wellness. Periodic progress exams help us to determine how your nervous system is responding to Chiropractic care. The advanced technology allows us to look at function and not necessarily focus on symptoms.
  • How will this test benefit me? For years a major concern of the public has been "why do I have to keep coming in if I am pain free?" or "how do I know if i am getting the proper adjustments?" Now you are able to actually see the changes, (see below for examples of a comparison of initial scans vs. re-scans) and it will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you are receiving. Because of this technology, we can provide a tailor-made program to meet your specific needs.
  • In most cases X-rays or M.R.I.'s may have been performed elsewhere, we will help in the process of obtaining these for Dr. Lauterbach to review. If new X-rays are necessary we can quickly obtain them through Martha Jefferson Out-Patient Services.


Report of Findings: Second Visit

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

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

After reviewing your health history,  goals, and examining your spine and SEMG reports., Dr.  Lauterbach will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition  requires care with other providers.   Dr. Lauterbach  will  provide the best  treatment and  wellness program for your needs.

Dr. Lauterbach has helped me when the going gets tough! I have fibromyalgia and when I first saw him I couldn't raise my arm due to the tightness in my shoulder blade and back. He gave me my arm motion back. The massage therapy in his office is wonderful, too. He has helped my son with repeated back pain after an injury, as well. He and his staff are very professional and friendly and will always work you in. Can't recommend his services high enough!
