What to Expect

Your First Visit: Starting Your Journey to Better Health

Before You Arrive

Download New Patient Paperwork: To make your first visit as efficient as possible, please download and complete our new patient paperwork ahead of time. This allows us to focus more on you and less on paperwork during your visit.

During Your Visit

Your initial consultation at Spine & Disc Specialists is a crucial step towards understanding your unique health needs and goals. Our comprehensive evaluation process includes:

Digital Functional Movement Screens

  • Digital Posture Analysis
  • Digital Full Spine Motion X-Rays
  • Orthopedic and Neurological Testing

These advanced diagnostic tools help us gather detailed information about your condition, ensuring a personalized care plan that targets your specific needs.

After Your Visit

Dr. Longo will conduct a thorough analysis of your X-rays and all gathered information to craft a 100% personalized care plan, aiming to achieve your health goals effectively.

Your Second Visit: Understanding Your Path Forward

During your second visit, you will have a detailed discussion with Dr. Longo about your test results and the feasibility of meeting your health goals through chiropractic care. This visit is about setting clear expectations and understanding the tailored care plan designed specifically for you, including:

Specific Exercises

  • Adjustments
  • Traction
  • At-Home Care Components

Our goal is to create lasting changes to both the shape and function of your spine, requiring time and commitment but promising significant, worthwhile results.

Your Treatment Plan: Measuring Success and Making Adjustments

As you progress through your treatment plan, we continue our philosophy of “test, not guess” by periodically repeating the initial assessments. This approach allows us to:

Quantify Improvements: By comparing new X-rays and digital scans with your initial results, we can measure your progress accurately.

  • Adjust Your Care Plan: These re-examinations provide Dr. Longo with vital information to fine-tune your treatment, ensuring optimal outcomes.

Seeing your improvements firsthand can be incredibly rewarding, making re-examination days among the most exciting moments of your care journey.
