New Patient Information
The team at ChiroCare of Florida understands that being a new patient at any doctors office can be stressful – so, we took the guesswork out of everything. From what you’ll need for your first appointment to getting your new patient forms out of the way, this is everything a new ChiroCare of Florida patient needs to know.
Understanding Chiropractic Care
Whether you’re new to chiropractic care or are just new to the ChiroCare of Florida family, it’s important to understand what makes us different. From relief to recovery, wellness, and every point in between, our team is there every step of the way.
With a thorough understanding of spine anatomy, our physicians take the time to understand your medical history, any current pain symptoms, and the current state of your spine. Our chiropractic care services involve manual manipulation of the spine to free any trapped nerves, soothe sore tissue, and correct any misalignments. If you’re unsure what that means, check out this chiropractic alignment video: it’s simple, quick, and effective.
At ChiroCare of Florida, our physicians will never prescribe medication or advise for invasive surgeries. Instead, we’ll utilize gentle, soothing therapies like chiropractic adjustments, ultrasound therapy, cryotherapy, and other chiropractic treatment options.

What to Expect as a Patient
When you’re joining a new practice, one of the most important things you can do is look for signs of a good chiropractor. This means searching for qualified physicians with a long history of care, state-of-the-art equipment, and a friendly office. At ChiroCare of Florida, you’ll find all three and then some. If you’re unsure what to expect as a new patient, we’ll give you a play-by-play.
Your First Visit at ChiroCare of Florida
If you choose to fill out your patient intake form at home, all you’ll have to do when you arrive at your first chiropractic visit is wait to see the doctor. Once you’re called in to see your chiropractor, he or she will conduct a physical examination to assess your range of motion, reflexes, and more. After a chiropractor examines any areas of the body which you have specified are causing you pain or discomfort, he or she will likely request an X-ray to get an unobstructed view of your spine. This will help your chiropractor construct a unique treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
Once you have received your first physical exam and any X-rays, your chiropractor will review all available results. Your chiropractor will then administer your first back adjustment based on their current findings, and once all of your X-ray results come in they will go ahead and draft your personalized treatment plan. If you have any questions to ask a chiropractor, you can take this time to do so.
Aftercare Between Chiropractic Visits
Before you leave ChiroCare of Florida, our friendly receptionists will help you plan a follow-up appointment to discuss the results of your examinations and devise an effective treatment plan. You might be wondering, how often should you get a chiropractic adjustment? This varies from patient to patient, depending on the underlying cause of discomfort, but your next appointment will likely be scheduled within the month.
You might notice that after your first adjustment, you feel a bit sore in some places. This is completely normal, especially if you were experiencing blood and nerve flow restriction. No need to worry about what to do after a chiropractic adjustment, gentle stretches and light exercise can help keep the pain at bay.
