Clinic Questionnaire

The initial intake form is important because many health problems can mimic disorders of the spine. This establishes your health background, for things such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your immediate condition, and other details affecting current health. Examining your history also helps the chiropractor determine whether the immediate reasons for your consult is, in fact, spine-related.

Please fill out all information to the best of your ability and note patients who have reservations about ticking any questions may discuss these with the Chiropractor personally. 

All case histories are treated with absolute confidentiality.
