Your First Visit
Dr. Marsilio takes his time getting to know your background and specific needs. Your overall wellness is our greatest concern. We don’t believe in simply treating the pain; we search to find the root cause for lasting relief. Your first visit will last approximately an hour and a half, depending on your condition. Mario will ask detailed questions and use Applied Kinesiology to test for weaknesses. If you already have x-rays or MRI films, please bring them with you, along with any findings. Nutritional Analysis may also be helpful for particularly troubling and persistent problems. Depending on the complexity of the case, referrals to other professionals may be in order for a complete approach to your healing.
Most people come to chiropractic care because of some sort of unrelenting pain, usually back pain, and conventional medicine has proven ineffective. Rather than rely on pain-killers or costly and risky surgery, many patients find chiropractic to be the perfect solution.
Chiropractic care is a safe, gentle and effective medical treatment that includes adjustments of the spine and extremities. When our spines are out of alignment, a multitude of symptoms can result, depending on where in the spine the misalignment occurs. Chiropractic focuses on the body as a whole, realizing that all parts work together and affect each other. Creating harmony and alignment among all the systems of the body is the goal. Pinched nerves, herniated discs, bulging discs, ruptured discs, and whiplash are often painful results from traumatic injury that has displaced spinal vertebrae. Your treatment can range from very gentle, low force adjustments to fairly powerful techniques to achieve realignment. You’ll also receive instructions for stretching, exercises to strengthen supporting muscles, and positive lifestyle habits to maintain proper posture.
We are committed to improving your health and easing your pain with lasting results—and we employ a multi-faceted approach to do so. Dr. Marsilio will suggest a Rehabilitation Program that is customized for you and would best suit your specific needs. Below is a brief description of some of the natural therapies we have available, that may be recommended along with chiropractic adjustments.
Cold Laser: Unlike lasers used in surgery, cold lasers do not generate heat and therefore are pain-free and non-destructive to the body. FDA approved cold laser therapy applied to an injured or enflamed area dramatically reduces pain and swelling, reduces inflammation, and speeds natural healing, with no side effects.
Interferential Current: Used for acute pain control, utilizing two frequency currents to reduce swelling and pain. A mild tingling sensation can be felt.
Nutritional Support: Based on blood work and urinalysis, we create a personalized nutritional treatment plan to meet your body’s needs. We test for over 30 different conditions, including sugar metabolism, calcium levels, and kidney function.
Percussion Myofascial Release: Using advanced vibrational percussive force that goes deeply into the soft tissue, restrictions in the connective tissue is released. It stimulates fascia to relax muscle, decrease pain, enhance mobility and stimulate lymphatic drainage. Treatment can improve persistent subluxations, fixations, chronic pain syndromes, and scar tissue.
Rehabilitative Exercises: We have a small on-site gym for your use, with one-on-one training provided by the doctor, along with take-home sheets for at-home stretching and strength-building exercises.
Galvanic Therapy: Uses low intensity current to dilate blood vessels, soften scar tissue, reduce muscle spasm and swelling, in order to promote tissue healing.
Ultrasound Therapy: Sound waves create heat to break up scar tissue, reduce swelling, treat pain, muscle injury, joint dysfunction, osteoarthritis, bursitis, and accelerate wound healing.
