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. John Hudak to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. John Hudak to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. John Hudak 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.


X-Ray Studies

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, Dr. John Hudak 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 X-rays, Dr. John Hudak will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. John Hudak will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.


Treatment

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.


Wellness Program

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.

  • "From Dr. Hudak right throughout the entire staff…The Best !!!"

  • "I went to chiropractic care because I was in terrible pain in my lower back. I was having this issue for about three months, then I saw an orthopedic doctor but was not a surgery candidate. I then had some physical therapy but unfortunately it did not help and I was told to change my line of work. I had to change from full time to modified duty at work because my job is very physical. All I was able to do was lay in bed if I was not at work most of the day, I had pain walking and pain sitting. I started chiropractic care and I had relief within the first week (2-3 visits). I've never seen a chiropractor before so I didn't know what to expect, but now I am back to work with no limitations. My advice to you would be that it works on so many conditions and Dr. Hudak is fantastic!! You would be in great hands because his staff is terrific, warm and inviting. I look forward to all of my appointments now."

  • "I came into Shoreline Chiropractic with extreme back pain. Since I started to go to Dr. John Hudak, my pain has almost completely gone away. My advice that I would give to people who are new to chiropractic care is that it really works and also to stick with the treatment."
