At your first visit to Total Health of Naples, Dr. Paralovos will explain the science behind chiropractic and give you a full evaluation to determine whether chiropractic care, physical therapy, spinal decompression or massage therapy is right for you. We can develop a plan that is specific to your condition and health goals.
If you are new to seeing a chiropractor and would like some additional information, please email or call us at (239) 260-1426 to receive personalized answers to your questions from our friendly team.
Prior to your first visit, we have some brief paperwork for you to complete. You may download and print the intake form here: PDF INTAKE FORM. Please call us if you need assistance with the paperwork. The intake form provides us with general information about yourself and your condition - please complete it to the best of your ability.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
