What to Expect
The main goal of your first visit is to have an examination and reach a diagnosis. You will be asked about problems you have been encountering and about the nature of your pain. The examination may include a few tests or referral for diagnostic studies, to evaluate your health status.
Once you have been diagnosed, Dr. Santana will develop a personalized treatment plan. The plan may include how many treatments you will need and what other procedures might occur. Depending on what is causing your pain and the severity of the issue, you might receive treatment the same day.
Dr. Santana may combine the use of spinal adjustments and other manual therapies with several other treatments and approaches such as:
- Heat and ice
- Electrical stimulation
- Use an ice pack on the treated area (for any swelling or redness)
- Try light stretching exercises
- Sleep on a suitable mattress
- Avoid heavy lifting
- Refrain from intense physical exercise for at least 3-5 days
- Eat a balanced diet
- Drink plenty of water
