Visiting CHMRC - What to Expect

From the moment you start to fill out the initial questionnaires know that you will be on your way to achieving a pain-free life!

Everything begins with a series of CHMRC intake documents we would like you to complete at your first visit to the office. The first form is an initial exam questionnaire designed to help us understand the symptoms and pain you currently experience due to your condition. Answering these initial questions can help us to explore potential pain causes early in the process and prior to direct examination. Therefore, we try to collect information that may shed light on contributing factors for your headaches, migraines or other pain. These contributing factors may include such things as auto accidents and sports trauma, as well as any health conditions you may have developed when you were younger. The more information Dr. Anzalone can collect about you dental, medical, head, back, and neck health the easier it makes his job in finding the best ways to get you pain-free.

While completing the medical history forms during your visit to CHMRC we ask that you include complete, and up-to-date information. If you have ever been hospitalized or had surgery, and if you have been ill within the past year you should let us know. Share information about any medications you are currently on, as well as the dosages. If this information changes between appointments we need to know about that as well. This information, along with the diagnostic results obtained at your first office visit will help us to create for you a safe and appropriate treatment plan that could lead to lifetime free from chronic pain.

During your initial evaluation, Dr. Anzalone will take computerized measurements of your head and jaw to determine any muscle or bone issues that may be contributing to your pain condition. With these painless tests he can rapidly discover where you may have neuromuscular force problems. This diagnostic information, paired with your initial questionnaire, will provide Dr. Anzalone with the ‘full picture,’ so that he may determine if you are a solid candidate for treatment and then assign the appropriate treatment protocols.

During your initial exam, Dr. Anzalone will also review other potential problem areas that may need to be addressed during your treatment process.

Treatment for Headaches, Migraines & Other Conditions

After the initial exam and diagnosis, Dr. Anzalone will prescribe an ongoing treatment plan involving neuromuscular rehabilitation. Designed with long lasting pain relief in mind, our ongoing treatment plans are not one size fits all solutions and will be different for each patient.

At Connecticut Headache & Migraine Relief Center you’ll find that our treatment modalities are drug free, needle free, and painless. Using patented technologies and performed in our office, these treatments have been used in sports medicine treatment and have been shown to work extremely well in patients who suffer with chronic pain. The main reason why CHMRC may succeed where other treatments have failed you in the past is that Dr. Anzalone treats the root causes for pain — not just the symptoms.
