I hereby request and consent to the performance of chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic procedures, including various modes of physical therapy and diagnostic x-rays, and any supportive therapies on me (or on the patient names below, for whom I am legally responsible) by the doctor of chiropractic indicated below and/or licensed doctor of chiropractic and support staff who now or in the future treat me while employed by, working or associated with or serving as back-up for the doctor of chiropractic named below, including those working at the clinic or office listed below or any other office clinic, whether signatories to this form or not.
I have had an opportunity to discuss with the doctor named below and/or with other office or clinic personnel the nature and purpose of chiropractic adjustments and procedures. I understand that results are not guaranteed.
I understand and am informed that, as in the practice for medicine and like all other health modalities, results are not guaranteed, and there is no promise of cure. I further understand and am informed that, as in the practice medicine, in the practice of chiropractic there are some risks to treatment, including, but not limited to, fractures, disk injures, strokes, dislocations and sprains. I do not expect the doctor to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications, and I wish to rely on the doctor to exercise judgment during the course of the procedure which the doctor feels at the time, based upon the facts then known, in in my best interests.
I further understand that there are treatment options available for my condition other than chiropractic procedures. These treatment options include, but not limited to, self-administered, over-the-counter analgesics and rest; medical care with prescription drugs such as anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and painkillers; physical therapy; steroid injections; bracing; and surgery. I understand and have been informed that I have the right to a second opinion and to secure other opinions if I have concerns as to the nature of my symptoms and treatment options.
I have read, or have read to me, the above consent. I have also had an opportunity to ask questions about its content, and by signing below I agree to the above-names procedures. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for my present condition and for any future condition(s) for which I seek treatment.
