I hereby consent and request to the performance of Chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic procedures, including various modes of physical therapy and diagnostic Radiographs, on myself(or on the patient named below, for whom I am legally responsible) by Dr. Jason W. Ingham and/or other licensed doctors of chiropractic who now or in the future treat the undersigned while employed by, working or associated with or serving as vacation relief for Dr. Jason W. Ingham whether signatories to this form or not.
Chiropractic only has one goal. It is important that each patient understand both the objective and the method used to obtain this goal. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment. We do not offer to diagnose or treat any condition other that vertebral subluxation. However, if during the course of chiropractic spinal examination, we encounter any non-chiropractic or unusual findings, we will advise you. If you desire advice, diagnosis or treatment for those findings , we will recommend that you seek the services of a healthcare provider that specializes in that area.
I understand and I am informed that, as in the practice of medicine, the practice of chiropractic involves some risk to treatment, including but not limited to, fractures, disc-injuries, strokes, dislocations and sprains. I do not expect the doctor to be able to anticipate and explain all the risks and complications, and I wish to rely on the doctor to exercise judgement during the course of the procedure which the doctor feels at the time, based on the facts then known, is in my best interest. I also understand that the practice of chiropractic is limited in its diagnostic abilities and Dr. Jason W. Ingham cannot, will not, and is not expected to diagnose medical conditions.
