Going to the chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your medical history, current condition and long or short term goals.
As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork before your visit. You will discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. Dr. Manadero will perform a thorough physical examination and most likely take any necessary x-rays to see what your current state of spinal health is.
Once the exam and x-rays are complete, the chiropractor will discuss a possible course of treatment that works for you as an individual. Set aside at least 90 minutes-2 hours of your time, excluding paperwork that need to be filled out BEFORE your first visit. We do not require our patients to come in for a required amount of visits, nor do we offer 'gym membership' types of chiropractic care. We will steer you in the appropriate direction and suggest a frequency of visits that would offer you relief however it is up to you to schedule according to your life and how you react to treatment.
Our clinic is an intimate practice, as we do not "double schedule" our patients, we treat every patient as an individual. We will inform you what your health insurance allows and then let you make the decisions on what extra therapies you may want/need. We do offer cash discounts to patients who do not have chiropractic coverage.
