If you are a new patient of Dr. Miqueli’s, here’s what you should expect on your first visit to the office, which can last up to three hours.
1. Review of patient history and troublesome symptoms
2. Chiropractic exam:
A thorough chiropractic exam includes specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess your range of motion, muscle tone and strength, and your neurological integrity. Further tests may be necessary to assess the affected area. This may include posture analysis, chiropractic manipulation of the affected body part, or guided movements in specific manners.
3. Chiropractic adjustment:
Due to the thoroughness of the chiropractic exam, the chiropractic adjustment, which follows, is precise and effective. Various adjusting techniques are detailed on Dr. Miqueli’s about/specialities page. These treatments will reduce nerve irritability by increasing your range of motion, which will improve your function and performance.
4. Massage therapy:
Dr. Miqueli will then employ various massage therapy techniques, which are also described on his about/specialities page. These techniques will lengthen your muscles and all other tissues lacking in range of motion and strength.
