Your first visit to our office will be similar to a patient’s typical visit to any doctor’s office. We will first obtain a detailed medical history during our personal consultation and examination. If indicated, we will take X-rays and, if we feel further tests or evaluations are necessary, will refer you to the appropriate specialist. The examination consists of chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological tests. The results of these tests will help in assessing the nature and severity of your condition.
Dr. Carle will discuss your condition and determine a care plan which will best suit your situation. This care plan may include spinal adjustments and/or therapies such as muscle stimulation or therapeutic massage.
In most cases your first treatment may be administered immediately following this discussion.
In many cases, subsequent visits are necessary in order to achieve spinal corrections. Because every patient is evaluated on an individual basis, care plans are tailored to the specific needs of each individual.
During the process we will contact your insurance carrier to determine the extent of your coverage. Our insurance specialist will be happy to explain your benefits, and we will file your claims for your treatment.
Most insurance companies will cover most or all of your expenses for massage and chiropractic care. Give us a call at (941) 379-2737 for more information.
Once you have successfully completed the initial treatments and achieved your health goals, we recommend a periodic chiropractic check-up… just as you should receive regular medical and dental check-ups. We encourage you to maintain good health. It’s your greatest asset in life.
