Your First Visit

Upon entering the Miniaci Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, LLC, our "Front Desk Coordinator" will  welcome you as a member of our family.  We will request that you sign in and complete our "new patient forms". This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition as well as insurance information.  

We ask that you set aside approx 1 hour for this first visit .


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Keith Miniaci to discuss your health-related problems and history, current complaints and concerns. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Miniaci to learn about you, your condition and if the doctor feels you would be a candidate for Chiropractic/Acupuncture care. If he feels your complaints would benefit from chiropractic care, he will tell you and move on to the Exam.  If Dr. Miniaci feels he is not the right practitioner for you, he will try to give you a referral and make the appropriate recommendation.


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Miniaci will perform a complete and thorough chiropractic examination testing reflexes, ranges of motion and flexibility. In addition, neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. 


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays here on the premises. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of  any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their mis-alignments and degeneration themselves.


Relief Care

 At the conclusion of this initial  appointment of a Consultation, Exam and X-Rays, the doctor may offer you some relief care if you are in an acute stage. This may include physio therapy, and/or soft tissue massage.  


After this initial day, it will be recommended to schedule your "Report of Findings" appointment when Dr. Miniaci will go over all his findings and give you his recommendations as to further treatment.
