What to Expect

When you walk into Stackwood Chiropractic, you’ll find our office environment is professional and courteous. Our well-established practitioner is ready to provide you with modern health care tailored to your individual needs.

The First Visit

New Patient paperworkWe ask that you bring your insurance information in with you so that our professional, experienced staff can handle checking your coverage and filing claims.

Your initial appointment with us consists of

  • A physical examination
  • A review of any past medical records or MRIs
  • A thorough health history and consultation
  • X-rays or other diagnostic tests, if necessary

Then, we’ll begin to relieve your pain with a specifically individualized treatment plan. This visit takes 30 minutes to an hour.

The Second Visit

On your next appointment, we will review any tests done on your first visit. Dr. Stackwood will go over a specific, detailed analysis of your condition. We go over exercises that may help you heal more effectively. Dr. Stackwood talks to you about nutrition and activities of daily living as part of this visit. You will receive a chiropractic adjustment and any adjunctive therapies that are necessary. This visit takes about 30 minutes.

Regular Visits

On your following appointments, you may just be in and out quickly if you’re receiving an adjustment only. If you’re getting massage therapy, your visit will take closer to 60 minutes. It just depends on what you’re choosing to have done that day.

Dr. Stackwood doesn’t determine when you return. Instead, you can make that decision for yourself. You’re welcome to pay per visit and schedule per visit, or you can be booked for regular appointments, depending on what you think is best for you.

Helping You Learn About Health

It’s important to Dr. Stackwood that our patients have an opportunity to learn all they can about healthier living. He’ll provide you with website links, email you information and you will see pictures and videos in the office to teach you more.

Additionally, Dr. Stackwood does talks to various groups and businesses outside the office on a range of topics such as ergonomics and back safety.

Saturday appointments are available. We speak Spanish and Cantonese. Contact us today!
