What should I expect?

Your initial chiropractic visit typically lasts 30 to 60 minutes. Dr. Metz will take a complete medical history and will perform an orthopedic and neurological exam to arrive at a diagnosis. At this time he will also screen for conditions that require referral to another specialist.

Dr. Metz will palpate (feel) the spine and/or extremities in search for misaligned vertebrae, joints that are too tight or too loose, muscular imbalances, and muscle tenderness. He may order an x-ray of the area of complaint to rule out the presence of a fracture or other pathology, which would contraindicate chiropractic treatment, or require referral to another specialist. Once Dr. Metz reaches a diagnosis treatment can begin.

His repertoire includes a variety of adjustment styles, which are tailored to the needs of the individual patient. With most adjustments a "popping" sound may be heard. This is generally not uncomfortable, but can be surprising the first time. Dr. Metz also utilizes "low force" methods which involve lighter contacts.

In some cases (such as elderly patients with advanced osteoporosis or other sensitive individuals), only low force adjustments are appropriate. He utilizes therapies such as cold laser therapy, ultrasound, hot and cold packs, and electrical muscle stimulation.

When appropriate, Dr. Metz teaches patients corrective exercises and stretches that can be done by the patient at home, to help prevent recurrences of the condition.
