What to expect at Lopes Chiropractic
We understand that coming to a new doctor's office for the first time can be nerve racking. If you've never experienced chiropractic care before, you may not know what to expect. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That's why our aim is to remove any unnecessary stress or tension and make you feel comfortable during your first and all subsequent visits with Doctor Lopes.
An appointment is necessary to schedule your first visit. This initial consultation can be made in person or by phone. Dr. Lopes will discuss with you your reasons for seeking care and all of your concerns to thoroughly understand your health care needs.
If your condition warrants it, an x-ray will be ordered. One could say that an x-ray exam is like blue prints for building a house. An x-ray helps the doctor see what is happening on the inside. Many times one's pain is a result of a years old problems and having a picture can help in discovering these underlying issues.
Just like all people are different, your body needs it's own schedule to heal. Keeping on the recommended course of care is very important for proper healing.
It is our goal to have you feeling better and back to a lifestyle with minimal visits to our office. We give you tools like adjustments to your spine and extremity joints, spinal stabilization exercises and ergonomic advice (each only as indicated by your body's needs) to help with a healthy spine, nerve and musculo-skeletal system and a healthy lifestyle.
