What to Expect At Port City Chiropractic

What to expect at Portsmouth Chiropractor

Dr. Shapiro will explain everything to you! Sometimes with the assistance of his helper!

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

1. Your First Visit To Our Portsmouth Office

Although we are a high technology office, you will be pleasantly surprised about how comfortable our office will make you feel. And that’s pretty much our goal: to make you feel comfortable, but also give you the best advice we can, based on what we find using a multitude of diagnostic tools.

During your exam, your chiropractor will go through a full history with you in order to get the most information about your health and physical history. We use many diagnostic tools including Surface EMG, spinal thermography, full spine x-rays, and measure your arches to explain the severity of pronation and how imbalances in feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders.

We even go over your nutrition and suggest new, healthier supplements if you need them. We make sure we are as thorough as possible because we understand (and want you to understand) that the body works as a whole and when one part is not working correctly, it can affect other parts in ways that might not even strike you as related.

2. Your Second Chiropractic Visit Patient Education

Every patient regardless of the condition that brought them to our off has pretty much the same questions:

  1. “What’s wrong with me?”
  2. “Can you help me, Dr. Shapiro?”
  3. “How long until I feel well and how long until the condition is fixed?”
  4. “What is my insurance coverage and any extra costs?”

We assure you we will answer all of these questions, and any more you might have. In fact, if yours is not a case we believe we can help with, Dr. Shapiro will let you know.

3. A Typical Chiropractic Office Visit

Most patients take advantage of other services while here. Whether is be a quick trip to the relaxation room, a massage from one of our licensed massage therapists, or a quick nutritional consultation. For the most part we respect your time here, so our goal is to get you in and out of the office in 10 minutes or less, unless you require more time due your condition.
