HOW TO CHOOSE A CHIROPRACTOR

Many people want to know what qualities to look for in a chiropractor and here’s what you can expect at Maplewood Spine and Fitness Center.  It is our belief that the following principles serve our patients and their health in the best way possible.

Treatment:

We treat only areas that are problematic for you.  Your treatment will include one or more of the following:  Spinal manipulation, various physiotherapy modalities, such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and intersegmental traction to enhance your treatment and healing process.

The doctor may recommend some form of stretching or an exercise program for you.  If this is recommended as part of your treatment plan, the doctor will go over the specific exercises he would like you to perform.

Follow-up Visits:

Depending on the nature and extent of your problem, most of our patients notice significant improvement within just a few visits.  Pain due to significant injuries however, can result in a longer course of treatment.

Maintenance/Wellness Plans:

Maintenance visits to the chiropractor when your symptoms are nonexistent or mild can be beneficial in helping prevent a recurrence.  This is particularly true if your symptoms tend to be predictable and previous treatments have demonstrated good results.  These plans are intended for patients who wish to establish a regular program of care to help maintain their results following the acute phase of care.

Specialist Referral:

We do everything in our power to get you better as fast as possible with as few treatments as necessary.  If you are not showing improvement in the expected timeframe, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist(s) for evaluation.
