What is the process of chiropractic care?

So you’ve been in an accident, or had a fall. Maybe there was no incident and you have been experiencing chronic pain for years; what next? Let’s take a look at the timeline of care when going to see a professional, licensed chiropractor…

At MedAmerica Chiropractic and Physical Therapy of Deerfield Beach, you start off with a consultation with our chiropractor free of charge by giving us a call and getting set up. Consultations typically last about 10-30 minutes. During the consult, we will discuss your symptoms and concerns, how your symptoms came to be, as well as what you’ve been doing in terms of treatment before. We will talk to you about possible treatment options, and if we both determine it’s a good fit, we will get started immediately!

Once we set you up for your first appointment, you’ll come into our office in comfortable clothing. You’ll meet with our chiropractor again, only this time we will get to work. You can expect to be requested to get in various positions for the chiropractor to examine your alignment, and make a plan for treatment. Treatment may include manual therapy, strengthening exercises, hot or cold packs, electoral stimulation, and stretching and/or an adjustment. Appointments may range as time moves on, but the first full evaluation should take about 45-min to an hour for the chiropractor to get to know your body and your needs, as well as for you to get to know them!

Our goal at MedAmerica is to provide non-invasive and conservative care to patients of all ages with a wide range of symptoms through high quality physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic care. All of MedAmerica’s doctors and therapists are licensed and experienced so that they can provide the best care.
