Your first visit will be a consultation with Dr. Maggio to determine whether you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. New patients will have an examination that follows in which we will study the way your spine moves. The examination uses a digital posture analysis and the computerized ProAdjuster to analyze your joint function. Our examination is thorough and completely painless. We aim to see you on time with a smile and a warm welcome.
We will then study the results and give you a report of what we find and the conclusions we have reached. If we discover that you would benefit from consulting a different practitioner, we will make the proper referral. Otherwise, we will recommend a program of specific chiropractic care and/or physical therapy performed in our office.
Do I Need To Bring Anything With Me For My First Patient Visit?
Yes, for your first patient visit, please refer to the following checklist. If you have any trouble with downloading the forms, upon request, we can email those directly to you. We look forward to seeing you in the office soon!
Each week we host a workshop in which Dr. Maggio explains the basics of chiropractic and steps toward a healthier lifestyle. This workshop is a great introduction to what we do at Virginia Beach Chiropractic Clinic.Learn more.
What Happens Next?
Based on the chiropractic treatment and life style plan you choose, you will start coming in to our office for scheduled appointments. Typically, appointments are more frequent to begin with so we can address major problems. As you progress through your treatment plan, suggested appointments will become less frequent. This is a normal and natural process, as your body begins to better adapt and correct itself.
Many new patients begin to feel a difference in their pain levels within the first few visits. Many continue their chiropractic care after their immediate pain resolves. This maintenance care is necessary, in order to prevent recurrence. It is also usually preferred by many patients because they can feel a difference in their overall health with a health maintenance plan in place.
