What To Expect at SCW
At Scarnecchia Chiropractic and Wellness our goal is to provide the highest quality of care in a friendly, caring, and efficient environment. It is for this reason all sessions are hands-on and one-on-one with your doctor.
We believe patient education is a crucial aspect of care. We not only want to help alleviate your pain/condition, but improve function and decrease the likelihood of recurrence. The more you know and understand your condition the more effective we can be at achieving this goal together.
Evaluation & Assessment
At your first visit we will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the dysfunction or root cause of your pain/condition. Depending on your needs, examinations may involve any combination of the following:
Complete Health History
Soft Tissue Palpation/Evaluation
Joint Motion Palpation
Note: In most cases x-rays are not required to begin treatment. X-rays are only recommended when clinically necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment of your symptom(s).
Report of Findings
Once completed with the comprehensive evaluation you will receive a detailed explanation of all findings. Treatment options based off of these findings will be presented and discussed to develop a plan of action.
In most cases, treatment will begin during your first appointment. All treatments are hands-on, one-on-one with your physician, and tailored to you. We treat a wide range of conditions, and to do so, utilize a variety of therapies in addition to joint manipulation. See our services page for more information about our therapies.
Helpful Tips for your First Appointment
