A patient, in coming in the chiropractic doctor, gives the doctor permission and authority to care for the patient in accordance with the chiropractic tests, diagnocic and analysis. The chiropractic adjustment or other clinical procedure are usually beneficial and seldom cause any problems. In rare cases, underlying physical defects, deformities to pathologies may render the patient susceptible to injury. The doctor, of course, will not give any treatment or care if he/she is aware that such care may be contra-indicated. Again, it is the responsibility of the patient to make it known, or to learn through healthcare procedures what he/she is suffering from: latent pathological defects, illnesses or deformities which would otherwise not come to the attention of the chiropractic physician. The chiropractic doctor provides a specialized, non-duplicating health care service. Your doctor of chiropractic is licensed in a special practice and is available to work with other types of providers in your health care regimen. I understand that if I am accepted as a patient by a physical at Ohio Valley Chiropractic, LLC, I am authorizing them to proceed with any treatment that they deem necessary. Furthermore, any risk involved, regarding chiropractic treatment, will be explained to me upon my request.
