What to expect on your first visit

Dr. Macary or Dr. Mazzarella will go over your health history with you to gain important information about the care that you require, and follow up with a chiropractic exam. Chiropractic exams include posture analysis, range of motion tests, and palpation (feeling the spine). Some patients may require more advanced testing and possibly X-rays. After evaluating your findings, Dr. Macary or Dr. Mazzarella will suggest a plan of care if chiropractic is something you will benefit from receiving. Most patients will then have their first adjustment.

Adjustments are gentle and can be applied manually by hand or at times an instrument is used for some people.  Most patients say their experience is very relaxing.
