Your First Visit With Dr. Stanger
Your first visit with Dr. Stanger will be very similar to other visits you may have had with other doctors for lowback pain or some other injury.
Prior to beginning care, you will be asked to fill out intake paperwork. The detail in the intake paperwork aids in providing better quality care to Dr. Stanger's patients and monitoring patient progress.
The first thing Dr. Stanger will do is take a comprehensive health history to get a full understanding of your condition and your general health.
Following the history, a physical exam will be conducted including a posture analysis, chiropractic, orthopedic, and/ or neurological exam depending on what is appropriate for your particular case.
If clinically warranted, Dr. Stanger is licensed to take x-rays and has an x-ray facility on premises. In the absence of red flags, X-rays are not necessary to begin manipulative therapies for most patients.
Review of Findings
Once all the factors surrounding your case have been evaluated, Dr. Stanger will discuss the diagnosis with you in detail, so that you can fully understand your condition(s).
After you have a good understanding of your condition(s), Dr. Stanger will recommend a treatment plan of appropriate therapies he can provide including chiropractic techniques, physical therapy modalities, rehabilitation exercises, home stretching and self-care recommendations.
Dr. Stanger's goal as a chiropractor is to get you out of pain and give you the tools to take control of and maintain your own health ASAP.
