Your Second Visit
Report of Findings
When you come back for your follow-up visit, we will go over all of the information and examinations that have been performed. The Dr. Mahler will give you a report of findings during which he will answer the three most popular questions:
- Can you help me?
- What do you recommend that I do to get better?
- How much is it going to cost?
After discussing your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays and tests, Dr. Mahler will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the chiropractor will tell you. If the chiropractor believes he can help you, he will recommend treatment handle any questions you may have. Some of these questions can be answered by reading certain blog posts such as the Phase of care, Chronic Pain, inflammation, What is Health, The Phycology fo Pain, and Posture Problems.
At Mahler Family Chiropractic Center, patients will be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the second appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and soft tissue therapies. The treatment is interactive so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment.
