Dr. David J. Lewis formulates customized treatment sessions for his patients based on the following information:
Your first visit will be a comprehensive oral evaluation at which time you will be asked many questions about your pain, including what you believe to be its source, how long you’ve been experiencing it, how it affects daily activities, how intense the pain is, and how frequently you experience pain.
You will be observed at rest from all angles for visual cues about your spinal misalignment as well as how your body moves; i.e., mobility, fluidity, flexibility and range of movement.
Dr David J. Lewis will perform an initial exam, physically palpating the area of your body that is causing you pain to ascertain if there are misalignments that present when touched.
Based on the results of the initial evaluation, a customized treatment course will be formulated, incorporating manual and/or instrument assisted spinal manipulation and adjustments, spinal decompression therapy and complementary therapies such as hot or cold therapy, electronic stimulation, exercise and stretching routines and regimes, all prescribed and performed with your immediate issues as well as your long-term wellness prognosis in mind.
Baywood Chiropractic takes pride in the long-term patient relationships they’ve developed. That’s because they recognize chiropractic as a long-term work in progress that covers acute pain, chronic pain, pain relief, pain management and eventual pain resolution that is kept under control by consistent maintenance and comprehensive care plans.
